Do you think you are avoiding any part of this treatment? What emotions or past events do you think you might be repressing? Thinking emotionally is very hard for me to do because when the pain starts (as soon as I sit or there's any pressure) I am thinking about my pain not my emotions. I am emotioned out, I don't know what other emotions could be contributing to my pain. My pain is constant so it's not like I can investigate what's going on like in the example that was mentioned. Before I used to get back pain and in that situation I understood that stress caused my back pain but when it comes to nerve pain (neuropathy/ central sensitization) I don't feel as though it applies to the same rules because the pain is constant; it does not go away. Whether I am having a stressful day or not the pain is always there; the longer I sit the intensity of the pain increases.
