Hi. I'm new to the Forum. Thought I was cured of TMS about 5 years ago after reading Dr Sarno's books. Took about 3 months but I was about 90 to 95% better after 30 years of low back pain and frequent acute muscle spasms. Unfortunately the back spasms have recently returned. I get them first thing in the morning as soon as I get out of bed which is way different from what used to be the pattern. The only way I can get some relief is about 30 minutes of walking but that's very difficult because of the crippling pain. Have now committed to the SEP to see if that will help.
