Hi everyone! First I wanna say sorry for my sloppy English since it is my second language. I finally collected some courage to write something. I've been dealing with so much pain for the last two years, but I had different and mysterious pain actually my whole life. I have pelvic pain and burning, sciatica pain, tinnitus, GERB, knee pain, shoulder pain, burning pain in different parts of my body, anxiety, depression etc..There are 2 surgeries behind me and I't did some good but I realized that my main issue is TMS, at least I believe this is it. I'll try to keep my story short I've been through so much stress in my life and it doesn't surprise me that I developed so many problems. I've known for of mind/body syndrome awhile, when my pelvic pain started 2 years ago ( I read a lot of Abigail Steidley advices ) but I just couldn't wrap my mind around it since they actually found something (inguinal hernias pressing nerves). Since then they also found FAI hip and labral tear, but the doctors were confused how much pain I had and most of them told me that the operation wouldn't help me. Something was telling me that the hip can't be the one to blame on pelvic/sciatica pain but then what was causing so much problems? After the second surgery my life was beginning to actually move forward. The pain was mostly bearable until this Christmas . I woke up on Christmas day and realized my bladder was in spasm and that I had to go to bathroom a lot more than usual. I panicked what was happening because the same thing started 2 years ago around Christmas . First I thought that I had bladder infection, but what a surprise all tests were clear. Then I accused it on my phsyical therapy that I started weeks before for my hip and that it was a bad reaction to it. For almost a month I had so much pain and pressure on my bladder. Then something else happened - pain stopped. For a few days I was fine but then I started to have so much psoas pain that would go to my low back and my core/iliacus hurt so much. My hip started to hurt and my back pain was at it's worst and I couldn't walk. I didn't get out of the bed for a week. My pain then stared to move around - back, abdomen - pelvic area- hip- knee. I know I was started to think - Oh my God, did I make something worse on my operated groins? Or was it hip, yes my hip must be the one because I don't know why would everything hurt so much. Or am I going crazy? I started to panic and I was sending again my hip medical findings to different doctors. I was convinced that I have to operate it so that the pain could go away. At least, this is what I was thinking until I talked to one girl that had hip operations. She kinda shook me up with her story - her biggest problem was TMS! We had so much similar symptoms and she recommended me dr. Sarno book - Healing back pain. When I read it I thought it was like he was talking about me, I completely found myself in that book. I started the Structured educational program and I'm on day 14. My horrible psoas and back pain is mostly gone. I started to walk my dog again and my hip doesn't hurt so much. I believe that this is a progress. But biggest problem for me is the pelvic burning which didn't change. I started to notice that my pain worsens with my anxiety or when I'm thinking a lot about it. I read success story by Ezer ( thank you for your detailed story and helpful tips) and I focused on my emotions. The problem is that I find it hard to connect to them. I really do believe that this problems can be dealt with a lot of work, but I get lost sometimes. My pelvic pain started when my mother got very sick and mostly all others problems I can connect to some stressful periods in my life. I'm only 26 years old and I want my life back. I put college, my relationship, my whole life on hold because of this pain. I wanna fight back but sometimes I find myself confused how to do things properly or discover what repressed emotions are causing my pain. Any kind of advice or thoughts what help you get through the pain until it resolved would be appreciated. Thank you for reading this thread and I'm wishing everybody the best!
