Hi all, I’m new to the forum and to TMS in general. My question is, I have neurogenic bladder, which is a very real inability to hold my urine. This came on very shortly after I began having severe sciatica in my leg and foot, which I’ve had for five years, 24/7. I’ve been told by three doctors that they don’t see anything on my MRI that could be causing the pain I’m having, but I do have mild spinal stenosis, DDD, and a couple of herniated discs, all considered mild. I’ve also had two urologists tell me the bladder issue is related to a pinched nerve in my back. I’ve failed all treatment options available to me, short of surgery. Could all of this be TMS? On another note, when the pain began five years ago, I was in a very stressful job as a court reporter in a small office with another woman who was extremely antagonistic, which contributed to my stress and anger. I involuntarily retired due to the pain of sitting eight hours a day. I’m currently reading The Great Pain Deception and finding some interesting parallels to my situation, but the neurogenic bladder is fairly unique. Any comments or insight would be greatly appreciated.
