Hi Folks, I am brand new to this forum and I am looking for some much needed insight. I have been dealing with awful IT band pain on and off for years. Typically it comes and then goes away after a few days, but this time it will not cease. I have pain at the attachment point at my hip and throughout my knee. It is pain to the point where I have to lift my leg up with my hands to get out of bed. The pain is so bad it has kept me up most nights for the last week and a half. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I have had some success dealing with other physical pain, but for some reason I am having a hard time fully accepting that this is TMS. It would be very helpful to hear of anyone else's experiences with IT band issues. Thank you!
