TMS has been a wild and unpredictable ride. My last post a few months ago dealt with how I was stuck in my recovery and although my pain was mostly gone, it still showed up on most days at least enough to discourage me from doing anything. Over the last couple months I was able to move on with my life. I was caught up in the changes going on in my life and meeting new people that I left the pain behind. Suddenly pain wasn't an issue anymore. Now last Sunday all of a sudden I had acute pain in my lower back. The odd thing is that I've never had pain there before. It was always in my mid to upper back. Now I'm having pain all over the place. The muscles in my abdomen are all sore and tense, I'm having pain in my bladder area, neck, etc. So having my first major flare up in a long time. I get scary thoughts sometimes like what if I have something worse than TMS like Lyme's Disease, or MS. A flare up like this is something that I've worried about in the past. Thankfully, it's not as bad as it has been in the past and I'm just hoping it won't be here to stay too long. I'm going to take the opportunity to read some Sarno and go over the TMS reminders, etc. Would anyone else like to share a story of a flare up you've gone through, how you dealt with it, what you learned, etc. ? Thank you.
