Things were getting better and was actually pain free for a few hours each day. I started sitting again. Then things got worse-"extinction"? I just keep telling myself that my unconscious is fighting this. I have tried to explore childhood issues, but nothing traumatic-just a difficult/distant parent. I have explored this and mourned this. I feel like it is more stressors from my adult life that are causing the problems. Is this likely? I am 100% sure that this is TMS. I have some people around me who try to say otherwise, but I am convinced. I hope this helps in a rapid recovery. I am doing PT for massage, but trying not to focus on physical. Do you think if I take an occasional advil it is getting in the way of recovery?
