I have had Si-joint torsion/dysfunction since 18 April, when I had my first back spasm when I was asleep. It has seemed very strange to me that such disability could come to me in my sleep, without any previous physical movement. I had been under great stress at work previously, seeing my workload vastly increase, and have a tendency at workaholism, so reading Sarno's book really resonated with me...I have the same trigger points, the personality characteristics that he describes, so I fit the profile to a T. I am really angry with management at work at what they are doing to me and my colleagues, yet I always tend to go along to get along....hmmmm. At the moment, I am seeing an osteopath on the NHS's dime, who has done two adjustments....I admit that I do feel better, but when I ask what I should do in the week in between appointments, she says nothing, let the joint adjust itself. But if the joint were twisted before I was in pain, why I am in pain now? Or, did it spontaneously twist? That seems weird to me...it just does not ring true. I also notice that on my pain free days about every other day now, my pain is replaced by anxiety, crippling anxiety. I have trouble sitting at the moment, so I am afraid when summer holiday is over, I might lose my job, which I am starting to wonder if I really want anymore anyhow. When I conquer the anxiety, then the pain subsides a little only to come back. It is very strange. Comments appreciated.
