I had quick relief from 15 years of back pain a few years ago after reading Healing Back Pain by Dr.Sarno. In the last several months my neck has been in pain, tennis elbow in my left arm and carpal tunnel in my right hand. I have had an MRI with nothing unusual. I was diagnosed with mild carpal tunnel. I have been seeing a pain doctor and massage therapist. I have had several trigger point injections and two different spinal injections. I had carpal tunnel surgery a few months ago. I felt I had to even though it was not severe because I am a dental hygienist and my right hand was going numb at work. I have been taking nucynta on a regular basis for pain. The injections would give some temporary relief to my neck pain but it always returns. About a week ago my brilliant husband said you should go read your book again. So I did and have had the most relief from pain in months. I now wish I had not had carpal tunnel surgery, first because of the expense and time off work but mostly because I now think it was TMS and wasn't necessary. I also got the book on CD so I can listen to it over and over as I drive 30 minutes to work everyday. I am still battling to overcome my pain. It has never completely gone away like my back pain but has times of much less intensity. I think I need to do some emotional healing with the help of Jesus to set me free. I see myself in the goodist, stoic, perfectionist and a few other personality traits subject to TMS. I am scared but hopeful about what God wants to expose and heal me from.
