I'm a middle aged partner at a small law firm with offices in two different cities. The stress and responsibility are overwhelming at times but I love what I do. I started having chronic lower back pain in my second year of law school (2010). Through recent psychotherapy I made the connection that the chronic pain started around the time my Father died from complications of a stroke. In March of 2017, after years of unrelenting chronic lower back pain. After having tried, PT, chiropractic care, Pharmaceuticals, heat and ice, topical gels and creams, nutrition supplements, electromagnetic stimulation, Yoga, MRIs, and epidurals. Nothing seemed to give me more than momentary and fleeting relief. I came across Doctor Sarno's audio book "Healing Back Pain". The book spoke to me and it's logic passed my skeptical scrutiny. Like a miracle my back pain disappeared by about 95% in a matter of days after listening to the audio book. I used to take over the counter pain relievers with every meal for the last 7 years. After listening to the Audiobook, I no longer needed the pain relievers and stopped taking them. I couldn't believe the results I was having. Unfortunately, on a business trip about 5 weeks ago, I woke up in a hotel room with moderate to sever pain in my lower back. The chronic lower back pain returned. Although, occasionally, for a day or two, the pain will jump to a different part of my body (shoulder, foot, or knee) and then return to my lower back. I proceeded to listen to Sarno's latest book, "The Divided Mind". The part (I'm paraphrasing) where he notes that people that still have pain after reading the book need to avail themselves to a structured program. I'm on Day 8 of the program and the pain is still here.
