I’m so glad to find this group! I totally believe that I have TMS. I’ve got neck,shoulder,arm&hand pain. I also just had lumbar spinal fusion 4 months ago. Surgeon says I have to take Gabapentin 3x daily until 6 months after surgery. I have to do my PT&walking too. It’s my upper extremities that are the biggest pain currently. How do I follow Dr Sarno’s rules about stopping PT&meds when I’ve just had surgery?? PS:I was a hairstylist for 25 yrs&2 Neurosurgeon told me after looking @neck that all arm stuff was coming from repetitive motion. I quit hairstyling 4 months ago when I had back surgery.
