Hi everybody, My name is Daniel and i am from Barcelona.First of all,apologies because my english it´s not very good.Last year hasn´t been easy for me.Started with a lumbar pain on my lowback..after a few months an mri showed i have spondylolistesis and spondylolisis since i was 10 years old (i didn´t know until now,and i have been always a very phisicall person,professional footbal player included)...i never had pain until last year...MRI showed discal protusion too in L5-S1. After a long year of neurologist and another doctors i refused surgery even the pain didn´t let me carry on with my normal life (my relationship ended basically because i couldn´t have sex due to the pain and people thinks the pain cannot be SO big if they see you as a normal person,however it showed me with the kind of person i was,so no big problem here)...and finally i discovered Dr. Sarno´s books last week and they took me here. I would like to believe i have TMS,really ,because it gives me hope to continue with my normal life.Even i see myself how Dr. Sarno talk about his patients (perfectionist,do-gooding person,etc) i don´t know for sure if i have tms or not.I could think i have if i hadn´t spondilolistesis but ,on th other hand,a lot of people with that don´t even know in their entire lives they had this issue...because it doesn´t cause pain. So i think may be if having that i have been all my life doing sports,football,fitness,swimming,etc...without any problem...may be i could have tms and get better and continue woth my life without pain. But i don´t know how to get diagnosed properly,could you help me please? thank you!
