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.
