Hi everyone, i'm excited to be starting this structured education program. I'm a drummer, so my hands are everything to me... and for almost 7 months now i've been struggling with an on and off case of "tendonitis" / "carpal tunnel syndrome". When it started I went through PT, wore braces, stopped practicing, and it actually did seem to help, at first, but not fast enough. A friend (another musician) recommended Dr. Sarno's book The MindBody Prescription, and after reading it I was intrigued but, honestly, I was not fully committed. Eventually my symptoms faded away and I resumed my practicing and playing for a couple months. And now my hand is once again painful, tight, tingly, etc... all the same symptoms in the same spots in the same order... and i'm so frustrated, and scared. I've decided to fully commit to the TMS diagnosis this time around, no excuses. My main concern is that the TMS recovery process will take too long, and I'll once again doubt it's validity. Anyways, my journey to happy hands hopefully starts today!
