Hi everyone, I just discover this amazing thing called TMS recently. I am a victim of lower back pain over the last 8 to 10 years. Visited numerous specialists, taken MRIs and diagnose as having a disc protrusion at L5. While I can have relatively painfree period of between 1 to 2 years timeframe, I notice the cycle between my back spasm becomes shorter recently e.g. spasm every 3-4 months. Therefore I decided to go for minor lower back surgery, namely nucleoplasty - September 2014. I was however disappointed and devastated when I have another attack immediately 1 months after surgery. That's when I come across TMS while surfing the internet and decided to read the books, "Mind over back pain" and "Healing Back pain". I can relate to most if not all the symptoms described in the book! I remember after reading the book, I literally jump out of bed and next moment, cringe in anticipation, but amazingly, no pain! Its now December (2 months since reading the books) and I have never felt better! If I has only known earlier of TMS, it would probably save me lots of pain and frustration. But I notice while my lower back pain seem to have dissipated, there is a new found pain in my buttocks now that's slowly going down my left leg. Is this the pain trying to find a new 'hiding' place? What should I do about it? Its mentally very difficult not to think of it as sciatic pain since my supposedly diagnosis is L5 disc issue. I live in Singapore (Asia). Would anyone be able to recommend any TMS practioner in this part of the world? Else what can I do? Thanks a million.
