    Hi everyone,

    I have been in constant pain for 15 years now. I've had 2 back surgeries and have gone through every type of treatment you can think of with very little success in reducing the pain. About 7 weeks ago my pain specialist put me on Cannabis. The pain in the upper half of my body has decreased a fair amount but my lower back is still absolutely miserable. I strongly believe that a good portion of the pain (or maybe all of it) is TMS related.

    Before they performed the 2nd surgery, the doctor said there was no reason for the amount of pain I was dealing with because there was not enough wrong with my spine to cause it. The surgery was done and it did get rid of the numbness but not the pain. This program is my last hope. I want to overcome the pain, depression, anxiety, fear and any other negatives connected to this stupid pain.

    I look forward to working with others towards recovery. Have a great day everyone!!

    Till this day I suspect that cannabis works for chronic pain because it 'soothes the mind'. In some way it is proof that TMS is real.

    Anyway, good luck to you, hope you find relief by approaching your symptoms as TMS.
