Read Healing Back Pain a couple of years ago when I had back pain that just cleared itself so didn't really try his methods, thought fairly convinced. Now excruciating lower back, buttock and left leg pain. Following MRI scan the diagnosis is a prolapsed disc. Currently I'm on physio and pain relief and no improvement whatsoever - pain started 2 1/2 months ago. Pretty convinced by TMS and started journalling about emotional issues several days ago. However, feel on my own, as partner keen to 'move onto next medical stage' - particularly with the 'deadline' of a very long flight to see close family at end of December. So sticking to my guns will be important during this course.
