Almost over a year ago I developed a burning pain in my left wrist that was attributed to tendinitis from overuse of my hand playing piano. For the next few months, I was in braces on and off, very much cut back on my playing and the pain came and went. Eventually it got to the point where I decided to leave the music school I was studying at during the time. As months passed, nothing really seem to help my wrists. I would have periods where I didn’t have pain, and I would have periods where it felt like I was never gonna be able to do anything with my hands ever again. eventually, it got to the point where I was in a brace again and was forced to do a lot of manual labor with my other hand at work. A few days later, my right wrist began to start hurting, which led me to being in two braces. I have been through Cortizone shots multiple times, braces on and off, and still I felt no relief. It often seemed that the braces seem to make the pain worse. I had been to multiple doctors who had told me my range of motion was fine, and that I should continue to wear the braces as much as I can, But still try to do my normal activities. I couldn’t fathom why it was taking so long to heal. A few days ago I discovered an article online describing someone with intense respin who read John Sarnos book The mindbody prescription and had relief from their symptoms. I was skeptical at first, but I have dealt with almost entirely all of the Causes of rage Sarnos described. I am young, and it never made sense to me why all these issues would be happening to my body. I bought the book and read it in two days. I felt some relief from the pain, and noticed that it did move around in my body. I also noticed the back pain and knee pain I’ve been having since high school could also be attributed to this. I started to exercise again, but the fear that I have messed up my wrists even more still prevails. I am re-reading the book And listening to podcasts, especially the one on this website which seem to make the pain a bit worse after hearing about the physical therapy and wrist ligament tears. Up until tonight after vigorously exercising, I was doing pretty OK. I’ve heard many success stories, and I’m still hopeful. I really want to get better, and I do believe that my pain is due to psychogenic reasons. Even so, it feels impossible to shake the fact that I hurt my body even more, or did something to aggravate the pain.
