Good afternoon, my name is Ryan (39 years old) and I have been battling strange issues my entire life. Prostatitis, neck pain, back pain and other random ailments for almost as long as I can remember. I will sometimes go years without symptoms, but something strange eventually happens and takes 12 to 24 months to resolve itself after trying every therapy imaginable, but never feeling like any specific therapy helped the pain go away. I'll go get x-rays, MRI's and other testing and nothing is ever found. Its gets frustrating having doctors tell you they do not have an explanation for my symptoms. I'm very active and usually "play through" any pain, but it weighs on the mind and eventually gets quite depressing. I have currently been battling low back pain for almost two years. Nothing is found on my x-rays or MRI's but the pain is a constant presence. After reading Dr. Sarno's Healing Back Pain I am convinced I have TMS. I can be quite obsessive and my personality certainly fits the description. I fully accept the diagnosis and I'm committed 100% to working through this condition. I do not really have any doubts since I've tried everything else and have nothing to lose. Thanks for listening!
