I have been aware of tms and Dr Sarno's work for about 4 years. I have read a couple of his books and I firmly believe the pain is brain's way to deal anger and fear. However, despite believing this I have not been successful on my own in decreasing/eliminating my pain. I have not allowed the pain to interfere with my activity level but it greatly interferes with my sleep. The pain is almost constant in my left butt, hip, leg; so much so I envision taking a knie to my butt, calve and cutting the muscle out. So I have had enough and have determined that I need to complete this program in hopes of getting my sanity back.
