Hello, TMS wiki. I am so happy that I found this forum. It feels so relieved to know that there are others with similar issues. And it can be healed. My back pain issue started when I was in college but during that time it came and went. Then when I got married about 5 years back, it slowly crept in on a regular basis. I did everything... I must say.. we did everything. My family and husband supported me in every step. From X-rays to MRI to sonography to physiotherapy to yoga and the list goes on. You know, even before I read about dr. Sarno, I guessed that the problem was psychological. My experiences made me think so. Many times when I was on vacation or on some serious work duty my back pain stopped irrespective of the long drives, bumpy roads, long walks and physical activities. When I started reading Dr.sarnos book, I realised that it's true. I totally believe that our mind plays a vital role in our physical health. I have almost completed reading the book. And I am relieved of 75% of my pain. When I came to know about this forum... I started reading a few threads and I don't know because of that or not but the pain shifted to my lower stomach but then stopped eventually. I really want to continue on the SEP but I am a little sceptical about it. Right, now I am not suffering from chronic pain...but the pain is mildly present and it comes and goes every now and then. What if it doesn't help or lead to another set of pains. I want to do SEP but I am little doubtful whether it will help. Few success stories about the SEP would surely help!
