Good morning. I have had back/neck/jaw/wrist pain on and off for 21 years. I used to be a runner and that seemed to set it all off when I lived overseas. I am now 49, work full time and have a 5 -year-old son. Like most of you I have tried everything. Other times in my life I was helped most by yoga. Now everything has spread and is much worse. I've put on weight, am out of shape (unusual for me) and just feel awful. I have read Dr. Sarno's book 2 times, watched his lectures on youtube and journaled extensively. My jaw pain went away, and my foot pain got a little better. Now I want to try these structured activities. This diagnosis makes complete sense to me. There is nothing structurally wrong with my back even though my left lower back, hip, and foot hurt. I have shoulder issues also on my left side, and wrist pain and carpal tunnel syndrome on both sides, and neck and upper back tension. I had carpal tunnel surgery on my right side in December which got rid of the numbness and tingling, but other wrist issues/pain persist. It is hard for me to imagine not having this pain. As much as I think I want to let it go, I am worried that I can't let it go. I have been in therapy and on medication for anxiety/depression since I was 20. I know a lot about my issues. I know what I am angry about, scared of, frustrated with - though of course there could always be more that is so deeply repressed that I don't know about. Today the biggest sources of stress are financial worries and my difficult marriage. My job is stressful - and my family of origin continues to be crazy-making. I walk around every day saying to myself, there is nothing wrong with my back. I have TMS. I believe it. But can I really let this pain go?
