Hi - I stumbled upon Dr. Sarno's book, and bought the audio copy since I drive a lot. I experienced some pain reduction since starting this journey about 2-3 weeks ago and it seems to keep coming back in some way. I notice that different things alleviate the pain to some degree but never all the way - whether talking to trusted family member or re-listening or reading success stories - those are all things where I will note a drop in pain by about 60-70%. But it keeps coming back. I have a long sordid history of undiagnosed back and leg pain, with incredibly tight hamstrings. Been to PT and doctors - no xrays or MRIs since PT has historically helped for a short time. And then I am able to manage the pain by doing my stretches and exersizes but if I don't do them - pain gets worse. I am (hoping not to be)limited in activity - can't run, hard time standing or sitting for long time, can't ride my horse without fear of pain coming on (trigger). Running and horseback riding have been triggers of my pain historically - now I am/was in pain most of the time - hard time bending over, etc. I have read about people getting well immediately after reading and that was not me - so I have some discouragement but also some hope. Perhaps I didn't or don't believe fully yet that this is what I have, even though it all makes total sense and I fit the personality to a tee. So I am a little discouraged that I still have as much pain that I do and that it keeps coming back but I have seen pain reduction in spurts so I'm willing to keep going - hence why I found this site as I feel like I must be missing something with this whole thing. Ironically, when I stretch my hamstrings I can and often feel anger come up as I'm stretching so I always figured I was 'storing' my anger there - so I guess I've always had some insight into the mental part of this and I am looking forward to working through whatever other blocks I have to healing. Thanks for reading!
