Dr. Sarno's book was recommended to me last week. Picked it up at the library and read it all over the weekend. It was very interesting to me. It all seemed very possible. I left a narcissistic man over 5 years ago after 25 years. 6 weeks after moving out my psoriasis cleared up and a wart fell off, so I know stress influences health. I have had back pain for over two years. I also have MS. But MS doesn't create the kind of pain I'm having. Went to a chiropractor, got the electrical stimulation and adjustments, but it didn't really help. Started seeing a spine specialist and got all kinds of steroid shots. The only helped a little and only briefly. Was told I have arthritis in my hips and 3 bulging discs. I am taking Norco and gabapentin for the pain, but it only helps some. Went to a second specialist with the same treatment and the same results. I have been gobbling up YouTube videos on the subject and and found the next book I want to read. The Great Pain Deception by Steve Ozanich. Then I found this forum and the Structured Education Program. I am going to give it all a whirl.
