I attended a “virtual” TMS lecture with Dr. Rashbaum the other day. The morning after, I woke up with pain in my neck, upper-back, and even a little in the lower-right side of my back. All of this on top of the same old persistent pain in the lower left & down my leg that I’ve been struggling with for many years now. For those of you not familiar with my extensive rantings on this forum, Dr. Sarno helped me eliminate my low back pain many years ago, but this time around, I'm really stuck. I stayed in bed too long, and definitely slept in a weird position, but I am hoping all of this is an indication that I have the TMS on the run. I’d like very much to hear about some others who experienced a period of increased pain and/or new symptoms following any kind of renewed commitment or break-through while on the way to recovery. I’m also really struggling with the ‘just do it’ philosophy that Dr. Sarno promoted. I am trying to walk a little further each day, but the leg/hip eventually gets so painful I’m just forced to stop. If I were to just try and resume ‘normal’ activity at this point, there’s no doubt I would hurt myself. I’m not worried about worsening any chronic injury, I just know that the pain will stop me. Being unable to participate in activities I enjoy is a major source of stress, without question. How do I break through that barrier?
