Hey guys, so I'm pretty sure I have TMS. I am 22 years old and was pretty active until my back started hurting. It has been a little over 4 months since it started. I "pulled" my low back in a Zumba class, but I did not feel any pain during the class. I was sore that evening a bit, and the next morning I was in a ton of pain. I waited a week, and I was not feeling a lot better, so I went to a chiropractor. He gave me some adjustments for a couple of weeks, and then the pain was gone. I went back to the gym only to "re-injure" my back - in the same place! Long story short, this happened a couple of times: healed, sprained, feeling better, sprained, but always in the same part of the back. I just read "Healing Back Pain" by Dr. Sarno a couple of days ago, and from what he described, it sounds like mine is a pretty classic case of TMS. Since he instructs to resume exercise, I did a Zumba DVD (as apposed to the actual class, which I was doing prior to the pain) yesterday and today, and my back hurts more now than it did before the Zumba DVD. My low back (where the pain started) is more sore, and my mid/upper back is now a little bit sore too! Can it still be TMS if it keeps coming back to the same area? Also, if it is TMS and exercise cannot hurt it, why does it hurt more and in more of the back after exercise?? Also, I have anxiety and depression, and I am getting LENS Neurofeedback right now, which has helped A LOT. Ironically, the back pain didn't start until almost a year into my LENS treatment, but I can't over-analyze every little detail; some things just happen out of order, or with no order whatsoever. I am 22 years old; I'm too young for this! I'm supposed to be having fun and working out and this is ruining my life! I was fine at first, but now after 4 months, I am so worried that I'll never get better! P.S. About a week ago, I has some ankle pain, and for the past couple of days, my jaw has been sore. I am assuming it's all part of TMS.
