    my earlier posts have been about my leg muscles, sciatica, pirfirmus, whatever it all is. But I feel ashamed uneasy feeling when walking. I just went running to prove I could but this shakes feeling is scaring me to death. So worried

    You're ok, remember TMS works off fear, so it becomes a cycle. Your legs are probably shaking because you haven't used them running perhaps in a while? Just try to relax, breathe, talk nicely to yourself, remind yourself that no matter what, it will be ok.

    You're going to be just fine. Maybe watch a movie or read a book, do some journaling, anything to get your mind off the fear and obsession. Are you doing the Structural Education Program here on the site?

    6 week daily program here, just search for it on main page. Last time it cured me, in grips of a relapse now, just started it again yesterday, today was my Day 2. I really encourage you to do it.

    I will check it out for sure. I have had other issues and it's worked this just feeling weird/pain all over my legs is scaring me in such a new way. So I would call thi s a relapse as well. What are your symptoms?

    Low back pain, radiates into left buttock and hip, down into left leg, sometimes all the way into the foot. Classic sciatica stuff. Mostly only hurts when standing/walking and at night when sleeping. The muscles in my left leg, especially left calf, twitch a lot.... I used to be worried about ms too, but turns out twitchy muscles are usually TMS related. Makes sense given the reduction in oxygen to certain muscles/nerves, as Dr Sarno explains. So I would imagine that's what is going on with you- a reaction from mild oxygen deprivation, resulting in pain, compounded by fear and obsessive thinking/examining of symptoms.

    The Structured Education Program is here: http://www.tmswiki.org/ppd/Structured_Educational_Program

    And Shalya, one of my many symptoms in the summer of 2011 ("Before Sarno") was shaky legs. It had nothing to do with exercise, it had everything to do with anxiety, and it was one of the symptoms that had me fearful of becoming housebound. All gone now, thanks to Dr. Sarno, Claire Weekes, the SEP, and this community.

    I assume you've read at least one book by Dr. Sarno (I recommend The Divided Mind). The second book you will want to read is Hope and Help For Your Nerves by Dr. Claire Weekes. Check out this post written today(!) about the power of her book: http://www.tmswiki.org/forum/thread...ing-for-me-if-you-are-in-pain-pls-read.10731/
