I have suffered from low pain on and off for years. In January I felt I had strained my back and went to a chiropractor. The next morning I nearly passed out from excruciating sciatic pain. I have never felt pain like that! MRI showed herniated disk L4, L5. I have been doing physical therapy for over three months and finally was feeling okay, then BOOM, the sciatic pain came back last Thursday. For the past five days I can't get comfortable in any position (I am typing this while standing). I bought Dr. Sarno's "Healing Back Pain" and "The Great Pain Deception" by Ozanich a while ago. I did read a lot, and do believe there is a mind/body connection. I just don't know how to figure it out. I just found this forum and am hopeful this day-by-day approach with support will help me. The pain is limiting everything I do. I really want my life back.
