Does my pain move around? Well, yes, it does. It did that before, it would move around, but always stay in my lower back. Right now, it has found a new way to pester me. Previously, I would leave the house and get struck by sudden bad back spasms, bad enough that they made me limp. I never turned around and went back in, I'd always finish the walk I had planned. Usually the spasms would get better, sometimes I'd keep limping for a while, sometimes I'd limp all the way through the walk, sometimes the pain got a bit better, sometimes a whole lot better. Sometimes sitting down for a minute would help, then again sometimes it wouldn't. But it would always start with a spasm. Not anymore. My body has decided that it can limp quite well without pain or spasms. So I leave the house, and after a few steps, my left hip starts doing something that I can't control, and I limp. And I can't stop it, unless I stop walking. Initially, this is totally painless, but after a couple of minutes, the regular pain sets in. Then, after a while, the limp might get better. Or not. The pain might get better. Or not. You get the picture. I'm trying to take this in my stride (<-- see what I did there?), but frankly, I'm baffled. I can see a certain logic. I had started to ignore the pain. Ignoring a limp is much harder, it makes me feel selfconscious. So, a limp it is. What's next? Hysterical paralysis? (No, I don't really believe this.) The good thing is that this is another argument in favour of TMS, right? This means I'm on the right track!
