So I've read healing back pain, I'm doing the SEP...currently reading mind-body prescription. The general idea of TMS as far as I've researched is that the repressed emotions can lead to problems with the autonomic nervous system, thus causing blood flow restriction and finally oxygen deprivation. I know TMS is very complicated, but if this is the general idea, how can I stop this from happening? I am trying to fully accept TMS and acknowledge it. Anyone that can help would be great.. again I know it's complicated and takes time but I can't knock the pain. Also the whole pavlovian idea makes total sense, I'm typing this now and immediately as I sit and type my upper back is fuc*ing killing me. I'm trying to acknowledge its TMS but it doesn't help really.
