Question Have been reading and studying tms material for some 20 years have low back flare up at the moment. Have fissures and mild bulges at l4 and l5 not herniated. Diagnosed in past with Illiolumbar ligament strain. Have had mid back trouble as well. I have always been anxious, depressed and over reactive and very active. Tend to hurt myself but then will not heal. 20 years ago I was Down and out for years and dr sarnos book healing back pain helped more than anything and got me back to working out again. I have extreme trouble with the fear of being disabled to point of being shaky. Flare ups come and go but have bad one now fear I can't make or back up. Don't know what I'm even asking just reaching out my name is jay. Thanks for any feed back.
