hi, I've been off work for 6 months with chronic acute back pain. I've had every test, seen multiple doctors and specialists and tried so many drugs. Amazingly, on 23 December I read John Sarno's book and immediately accepted the diagnosis of TMS and my pain almost instantly reduced. Amazing! Having been quite immobile for those months I am wondering if there is advice on how fast or slow to get going again? I went to the cinema today, first time in 6 months, and afterwards the pain came back quite hard. The cinema however, which is sitting, didn't hurt. I am a teacher so my term starts tomorrow and I know they will want me to start back at work as soon as possible, but I wonder if there is guidance on doing too much too fast, or maybe it's better to push myself sooner? I am also a little nervous about starting back at work in case the pain comes back as badly as it was again, or maybe I won't cope... Any ideas gratefully received, thank you.
