I am somewhat new to the TMS world. I absolutely agree that x % of a person's pain and discomfort can be caused by mind/body interaction, and probably no one would disagree with that. In my case I don't think x is 100%, but it's still probably a pretty high number. I have a structural issue in my lower back/pelvis/SI joint (there is literally an audible clicking/grinding noise and sensation). Have been to several docs, had an MRI, been to PT, continue to go. But the pain increases basically in correlation with the amount I stress about it (4 months ago it was painless, was only after researching it endlessly that it became painful). I tried to limit any meds, and take OTC only, and even that just sparingly, but last week the doc said go ahead and take 2 Aleve every day to potentially bring down inflammation. So I have done that for a week, but that has had exactly zero effect on the discomfort. I'm wondering if this apparent insensitivity to OTC pain meds is more a sign that it is basically my brain generating the pain. Wondering if anyone else has had this experience in their journey, basically pain meds not working. At least OTC.
