Thanks in advance for reading this; apologies for the lengthy post: Lifelong TMSer here who has experienced literally every whacky equivalent/iteration under the sun. Thankfully I have rid myself of 95% percent of these ailments (along with the fear), over the past 5 or so. That said and, knowing how crafty TMS can get, I never put it past TMS to be the cause of, or at least the exacerbater (real word?) of many of my aches and pains. Low and behold I am in the gym there months ago and upon jumping off the pull-up machine (about a 6 inch fall so, more like a release from…)I land at a slight angle that gives me searing, indescribable pain in my right hip and IT band. No big deal…I walk it off and go about my routine. This pain however, stays with me for the next month or so. During this time I am naturally suspect of its origin as its mostly IT band pain, which is a TMS hot spot and an area that I have “dealt with” in the past. I then decide to go to a Dr who suggests an MRI. This is what the MRI shows: 1. Slight tear in the Labrum 2. Grade 4 chondromalacia (arthritis) 3. Convex morphology of the femoral neck (bump in my bone) Went to a surgeon today who said “hes not sure exactly which of the above is causing my pain”. “Could be one, could be all”. Keep in mind this guy is one of the top people in NYU and was a real sweetheart who was trying not to pull me for surgery. So, although I do definitively have structural issues, the Doc said ive likely had them all for YEARS. He wants to start me with steroid injections and PRP therapy and if that doesn’t work, surgery to smooth out the bone and try and fix the tear. Isnt it possible that this could be TMS?? The crux of my TMS was when I supposedly injured my neck (which again, happened very abruptly), had multiple disc herniations, and was told id never lift weights again or be completely free of pain, without surgery. Here I am 5 years later, in the gym 5 days a week and haven’t had a stitch of neck pain in almost a year and all because I swapped surgery for Sarno, journaling and lots of introspection J Along with the myriad of other major issues I have had that I have completely eliminated I can not only say I have a propensity for psychosomatic disorders but that that I am now rightfully suspect of any pain that comes out of left field. So my question: has anyone here had serious hip pains and experienced something similar to the above?
