I've been reading and practicing Dr. Sarnos techniques for about 6 months now with great success. My back is better, my knee is better, my throat is better. However, I still have pain in my elbow (from guitar playing) and I've now developed pain in my foot. I feel convinced that the foot pain is "symptom imperative" and I've tried to wait it out but the pain has persisted and I finally saw a doctor who said there was perhaps a very small stress fracture and has prescribed a boot to be worn for 4 weeks. Yuk. I'm following his directions but I'm still not convinced that it's not a result of symptom imperative. And as I said my elbow is still painful. Also, I grind my teeth at night and I'm sure that's TMS too! Anyway, I found this program and will give it a whirl. I have thought that perhaps psychotherapy might be necessary but none of the therapists in my plan subscribe to Dr. Sarno's theories. And with two kids in college it's not a good time to take on an additional expense.
