Like Enrique, I suffered from loss of income due to RSI in my hands, wrists and forearms (I quit my job and went traveling because I thought the stress was causing the RSI and the lower back pain). I remember that my therapist at the time recommended that I check out Sarno's book and theories, but I told him I didn't believe in any of that new age crap. Fast forward 4 years, and I was still developing new pain syndromes (neck and foot pain). Finally I remember looking for answers as I had tried everything (ayurveda, psysiatrists, physical therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, hand surgeons, etc) and came upon Sarno's theories again online. I decided to give it a go and I think within a week or so I was 40% better (I could sit longer in a chair, and my hands didn't have the achy feeling they usually get which prevents me from working, and my neck pain is gone). I'm still working the program and hoping that I will continue to see improvement.
