outbreak number 2 A few years back I had a back problem and found Dr. Sarno. Everything made perfect sense and after my episode, I've had no back pain since. Fast forward to a few weeks ago. I'm riding my wife's peloton bike and hit the peddle weird immediately hurting my hip. Not a big deal I pushed through and finished the ride. Within three days I could no longer walk the pain was so great. But the pain was my hip, not my back, so TMS never entered my mind. I went to the emergency room for some kind of pain relief and they told me I had Hip Bursitis. Once again not back pain so not TMS. The treatment of Hip Burcisits is bed rest. I laid still for two days but I still couldn't walk. At this point, the pain was making my right leg spasm and have sciatic pain. I went to an orthopedist and right away she informed me she thought I have a bulging disc. And I got an x-ray and MRI. I think we all know what they found... yep all the bad stuff that Dr. Sarno tells you not to focus on. That's when it finally hit me that I have TMS again. So for 2 weeks, I've been focusing back on my TMS mantra. But the pain is still making sleep and walking hard. Anyway, I'm wondering how long till I can get my mind to get over the pain in a real bad case? is two weeks possible?
