    Well, I am 49 and generally very fit and healthy, down my gym doing circuit training, kettles and badminton. I started to get sciatica but it went and then it came back with a vengeance at the end of March and here I am now, August, still battling it.
    Since reading Dr Sarno's book I am very aware of my repressed anger and anxiety and am trying to adjust this to this after years of holding it all in and am the T type queen of 'keeping up appearances '. I am off the pain killers in the main, just 500mg of Panadol when I need to distract from the pain. I think I have conditioned pain when walking and first thing in the morning but am struggling to keep it psychological rather than physical when the pain cascades up and down my leg in ribbons of fire.
    I am very hopeful that Dr Sarno will cure me. I had to go for an MRI today but am not bothered about the results particularly as I know I have TMS.
