Today we went on a tour of the manufacturing and distribution facilities at my company. I always experience the most pain and achiness when I have to stand for long periods of time. As we went on the tour, I tried to keep telling myself that the pain is TMS, but I did have to lean on things and could not wait to get back to my desk to sit down. And of course, I felt better once I did. When I got home, I decided I would walk for 30 minutes and keep up my mantra that the pain is TMS. The pain started in my lower back, then I got some pain in my right knee, then by the end of the walk, it was all the way up to my neck and shoulders. What was interesting is that my right knee has a partial replacement and the pain was in the area that had been replaced. I also got a stabbing pain right under my knee cap (that has not been replaced). I wouldn't think I would have pain in the part of my knee that is titanium. I also rode my spin bike for 15 minutes trying to focus on my music and not the pain in my neck and lower back. I am still sore from all of that as I am typing. Perhaps I need to take it slower and not try to do so much. I have been forcing myself to go to the gym 5 days a week for a couple of years now in spite of the pain. That doesn't seem to be working for me. I know that Sarno says that you should resume all activity, but in my case, I NEVER stopped working out. I just did it in spite of the pain. So, how do I handle this?
