Dear Forum members - please reply if you can shed any insight - I have been pushing through some very severe TMS hip/leg pain. Devoted to Dr. Sarno's theory, but realize the roots are deeper emotionally. Just yesterday clicked a link from the TMSWiki onto "Unlearn Your Pain - Chapter 5" and have been working my way through the prompts that trigger childhood memories, relationship with father and mother growing up, expectations and discipline. Really digging deep. My parents are both still alive, albeit aging (87 and 80) so the intense pressures I grew up with are diminishing, but my pain levels are SKYROCKETING! I'm guessing it's because I'm identifying some very core emotions, and my dreams are increasing as well. I only sleep 2-3 hours at night, then have to nap throughout the day. I find myself crawling back in to bed just to go back to dreaming to see what comes! Has anyone experienced a similar course of healing - and would they be considered "break-throughs"? I can't take this pain any more!
