Fourteen years ago my brother was killed in a motor bike accident. I went into shock and my bladder stopped working to the extent I had to be hospitalised and catheterised. When I realised it was grief that was causing the problem I went back to peeing normally. However, I then developed foot, leg and back problems. This resulted in me having surgery in one foot and having metal pieces put in because they thought the bones were degenerating due to arthritis. I also developed severe hip bursitis and have had about five cortisone injections. Now I can see these were TMS symptoms. In 2005 just before my brother's death, I had run the London Marathon. Before finding Dr. Sarno's book last month I had not run for 9 years. Today I completed my third, very short, jog. I have no pain during or after running, still a few nerve stabs when sitting in lower leg, not going to let these worry me. I know I am troubled by more than my brother's death and have repressed other emotions but, hey, I have made a start. Sorry for the English spellings I live just outside London.
