I have been in pain for last 11 months. It all started with a small stiffness in neck and then to pain in arms, traps, wrists, thumb, etc...and to such an extent now that its my second months f disability. I go to work and I type for just few minutes and I have burning pain in forearm and thumb. I thought I have RSI and pains in back due to weight lifting i did for 7 years and bad posture. Tried everything, orthopedic surgeon, trigger point injection, acupuncture, PT, chiropractor, trigger point massage etc..nothing helped. I started reading Dr. Sarno's book and my symptoms started reducing. More than the book, i personal feel i have lived in fear for last 20 years. AT age 17 i met a guy and after 6 years of relationship i got married to him. After 10 years of marriage i divorced him and then the following 4 years I was in court fighting against him. So basically all these 20 years I have trained my mind to live in fear and anxiety and above all I am angry for have lost my prime lifetime because of someone who was a bully and always intimidating me. After reading the book I just believed that i am such a good candidate for TMS. I didn't have any doubts, even if i had no pain symptom i still believe i have TMS. I lived in fear and anxiety which means now my primitive brain is used to living in it. I accept the syndrome and I know if others have cured so will I. I want to heal not only to be pain free and go back to work but also to live a healthy life where my brain is not trained to live in fear and anxiety.
