I am 33-year-old woman living in Korea. I have had pains on my knee for 3 years and on my wrist and foot for 1 year. I can't stand up more than 10 minutes, after that I feel severe pain on my heel. I can't walk more than 30 minutes, because I feel various pains on my foot including heel, sole, leg .. etc. Some doctors diagnosed "chondromalacia patella", "plantar fasciitis" and "achilles tendinitis." But I don't agree with them. Especially, after looking at the MRI on my knee there was no symtom for my pain. Everything was fine. And I got an ultrasound for my heels, there was also nothing at all. But I am so sick and hard. I am tired of not going outside without car or bicycle. I even had to quit my job because I couldn't walk and type on the keyboard for a long time. But I've found the book that Dr. Sarno wrote a few days ago, and I also found this website. I've read week 0 and Alan's recovery program. Now I think I have TMS. not sure 100%, I'm just a beginner and learning. Whenever I feel pain I become weaker and weaker. How do you make up your mind when you feel your pain? I have tried to think this is "fake pain that brain makes." since yesterday. And I try not to focus on the pain. I have definitely gotten lots of stresses when I had a job. Quite sure and after I got married there was a bunch of big things happened to me that generate stresses. But I have thought I overcame those stresses. Because those has not happened to me again. After I got pains, I have tried to love myself like Alan says. But those stresses has built for a long time, I think that is the reason these pains became chronic. Even though my stresses have gone out I still have pains. I know. Do you have any advice for me?
