I have been having low back pain for over a year and as most of you have tried everything to solve this physically. No success. Then I ran into Dr. Sarno's book and of course read it right away. I also called Dr. Sarno's office but found out that he has retired and that Dr. Ira Rashbaum has been continuing his work at the Rusk Rehabilitation of NYU Medical Center. I have met with him twice now and I know we have not completed his sessions, there are still two more to go. I know I will have to deal with how to identify my emotional issues but am not sure how to deal with that. I do believe that I have TMS and see the flicker of light ahead, but would be good to hear from some of you who have actually done the identification of the issues and how you went about it. Thanks for all the help!!
