    Hi everyone,

    I have been an on/off TMS believer for three years, but I am now wanting to fully commit to this healing process. I had two ruptured discs when I was 19 years old and was told surgery was the only option. I had surgery and was symptom free for three years, and now for two months I have been experiencing very similar symptoms with no known injury. My symptoms began when I started working in a soft tissue and chiropractic office as a medial assistant and I would see so many people come in and out of the office with back issues. I would come home stressed everyday that I would end up in chronic pain like those patients. After only three months of working there, I developed back pain and sciatica symptoms. Looking back, it makes sense why I would develop the symptoms that I have which makes me believe I have TMS, but I am not 100% convinced. I feel as if I am too young to have "natural" aging of the spine and I am one of the rare exceptions. HOWEVER, this is something I am very determined to work on so I am feeling very hopeful.
