I have had back pain for over a half year now, im 18 years old. I am very confused.. and i feel like the back pain is destroying my life. I have been MRI scanned and it showed some sort of small bulging disc, and i have been going to physical therapy some times but it didnt help. So now im thinking it might be TMS, i really want my old life back I think i have TMS beacuse im a very selfblaming person, i have social anxiety, health anxiety and i always think the baddest (if thats a word) about myself. At the time my pain started i also had many expectations for myself, which i maybe knew i couldnt live up too. But i still keep thinking about the bulging disc though, and the scary thought that i will have back pain for the rest of my life. But im starting the program now.. willing to try anything.
