I have been suffering for six years with herniated L5 T8 T9 upper back and now SI joint dysfunction along with piriformis problems. I have sever pain in my testcle, inguinal ligiments, hip, left Butt and siatica. Have not worked in six years and I have tried all but surgery because the doctors don't think it is bad enough. It has distroyed my life. I'm currently going to PT three times a week for the last four months and I started going to the chiropractor twice a week again. I just found out about Dr SARNO and I started to read his books. Im glad I found this web site. I'm at the point there just not much left for me to do but more of the same. I think I'm ready to believe. I see a lot of myself in his books but it sound to good to be true. I alway felt there was a mental component to my pain but I have trouble believing that it's causing it completely. The bigger issue is how do I get myself to stop doing my PT and chiropractor what if it's not TMS and I go backwards. I can go back there I'm still recovering from a bad flare up from last July. Is it all or nothing or can I still go to PT and chiropractor and see results? Has any one done this? Do you have any advise for me how to move forward with TMS. I can not find a TMS doctor in Milwaukee wi. I did have the Mayo clinic look at my MRI four months ago and they don't know why I'm in this much pain but my rehab doctor thinks it's my SI joints and something now with my hip I never had before go figure. Plus he thinks it's my l5 too. Help I really want to believe!
