Here is my story, On and off i have had pain in right side small of back for 7 years apart from that i also suffer from IBS. I have always got pain when i am stress from life event like fianacial stress or a break up , a career related problem and my own fear and insecurities. As i picked dr sarno book again i realised how i forgot about all and let my personality take control of me once more bringing in the pain. What i have noticed is if my pain is gone my anxiety comes to forefront, i am also reading Dr Burns feeling good mood therapy book to change my irrational thoughts. I intended to get better as i belive 100% in dr sarno thoery it has cured me before and it will cure me again but this time i want to make it for lifetime or atleast make the remissiin period last long.
