    Hello, I am 25 year old and I’m a Norwegian. I have been having some problems with my knees, back, elbows and recently my hands and wrist.

    My first thought was that it was tendinitis, and I have been to chiropractor
    , physiotherapist, acupuncture, I have taken health supplements, bought spiky mats, doing stretches. I have been stressed, a little depressed at times (even crying) but maybe most of all I have been afraid that my condition can become more severe or worse. So I have quited playing football and all sorts of training. I do run occasionally but not much. The last few weeks my deepest fear has been that my hands and wrist will ruin my education, I’m currently studying at the university and im afraid that my condition will get so severe and the pain too great to continue. I’m getting older and I see my friends finishing their degrees and staring to settle with their families. And that stresses me out too.

    I found Dr. Sarno’s book ‘’The Mindbody Prescription’’ and I just completed reading it today. I found myself in many of the personality traits that the good doctor described, but not all of them. I have started with the Educational Program for TMS today and I’m determent to get BETTER.

    Hi, Norwegianguy. Welcome to the TMS community. You have come to the right place to heal from your pains.

    This program will help you to discover the emotions causing them. I healed from severe back and shoulder pain after doing the SEProgram. I discovered I had been repressing anger and other emotions going back to my parents divorcing when I was seven. I was able to understand my parents better and forgave them.

    Your posting shows you are thinking the worst is going to happen. We call that catastrophizing. Many famous people including Mark Twain say that what we worry about most seldom happens. To avoid worrying about the worst happening, try to live in the present moment.

    You are letting your "inner bully" make you feel as if you are not keeping up with others in their education or starting a family. Those emotional stresses show up in physical pain.

    You are going to learn a lot about yourself in the SEProgram and it will stop your pains. Try to keep active and jog ore run, because it helps in the healing process. Keep posting about your progress in the program.
