Two weeks ago, I picked up Dr. Sarno's book "Healing Back Pain" after experiencing six months of debilitating back pain and have been amazed at the results. My progress has been slow and steady since reading the book and engaging in the structured education program on the wiki page. But all this success has me thinking: what if my chronic foot pain that I have had for 3 years is also due to TMS. 3 years ago, I injured my foot (likely a stress fracture) while training for a long distance run. The pain has never left - despite 3 surgeries and numerous other attempts. When I first read Dr. Sarno's book, I was convinced about the back pain (and have seen results) but still assumed my foot pain was due to the initial injury. But then I think about it, and my foot pain started during a very stressful time in my life. I was getting married two months later (and was feeling guilty about having a tiny wedding and not inviting many people - now I realize was the best decision ever!) and also was moving away from my fiance and family for the summer to work at a powerhouse law firm in Chicago. Since then, the doctors have been confused by the pain. They don't know why I still have the pain, and while the nerve is still entrapped, there is nothing more they can do. Is it possible that my foot pain is also due to TMS. If so, is it normal for that pain to not have changed at all while the back pain has improved with my TMS work? Perhaps it is because I haven't yet accepted that TMS is the cause of my foot pain? This forum has been so wonderful so far - thanks for the support!
