I had tremendous back pain around 6 years ago and miraculously managed to come across Dr Sarno's book "Healing Back Pain" (this after having cortisone injections and spending a week in bed unable to move). I read his book in one go, threw away all the anti-inflammation medicine and trusted absolutely his advice. I remember one part, where he said don't be surprised if the next day the pain has moved to a different place - that's exactly what happened, the next day it was between my shoulder blades! It really reinforced the fact that he knows what he's talking about. Then the pain disappeared completely and all was fine until November last year. I felt a twinge in the lower back during a Pilates class, which progressed over Christmas to pain in practically every part of my body. Really excruciating pain. It has now settled in the right side - shoulder, upper arm, wrist and knee. I also have a general weakness in both legs, even getting out of bed is difficult. I'm really hoping this Program can help, I obviously need to work things out, going back to childhood issues that are unresolved to this day (I'm now 54). Thanks for listening to my day 1 story.
