I've been suffering since April when I bent down to pick up a pillow and it felt like someone shot me in the back. I collapsed to my knees where I stayed for 12 hours spasming non stop. I've had it before... but this time was the worst. MRI showed arthritis, dessecated L4L5, herniated disc, nerve narrowing. I also have 3 cervical herniations. I've done it all..chiropractor, trigger injections, PT, accupuncturist, ART therapy, stretching..sometimes it helps temporarily but here I am still in pain, still worried that one wrong love will have me flat on my back again... I've read the book but I can't help but be skeptical. After watching the 20/20 video I feel hopeful. But I just can't imagine that this is all mental and it will actually go away! I've suffered from panic disorder for years. What's funny or odd is that I haven't really had a panic attack in almost two years yet I've had more pain issues in that time then I've ever had in my life. Thinking maybe I exchanged one for the other? I had an appt with Dr Ira Rushbaum at NYU but I didn't go. I'm not sure why really. Maybe I thought that it wouldn't help. Maybe because I've read he doesn't have such a great bedside manner? But I think I'm going to rebook my appt. I am sick of living like this. My family (husband and kids) are sick of hearing me complain. I've spent so much time and money and I'm still in pain. Something has got to change.
