Hi All, I have been making progress and then plateaued out. I really believe impatience is a massive barrier to recovery. I have largely been pain free but tension in my lower back,right hip and quad remain. This has me walking with a limp, pain free but looking like a dork. It doesn't worry me until people bring it up. Then I get pissed off. Some things seem harder to accept and let go of than I initially thought. I don't like the idea of walking with a limp because in all efforts these muscle groups wont relax. I do not understand how Back pain,sciatica, pins and needles and general weakness can all disappear but a scar seems to be left in the form of imbalanced tense muscles causing the limp. It is like my subcinscious TMS beast is mocking me. That makes me sooooooo ANGRY. This has been going on for some months now. I see an end in sight but just cant wait. My weekly diet includes journaling, mindfulness meditation, exercise and intake of info. I would like to slay the beast creating this cycle in my mind and believe patience and persistence will be the key. I welcome any feedback fellow TMS'ers who may have gone through this to share their experiences and provide what pearls of wisdom might nail the home stretch to see me walking straight and pain free again after two and a half years.
