Hey all. I am completely new here. I am currently reading the mind body prescription (about 75% through). I am discovering that I am suffering from an emotionally induced physical ailment. I have had severe pain in my wrist and Palm area for the last year chronic. I am young and healthy (25 years old). I used to live an extremely active life, working out six days a week. My chronic pain ruin my life (or so I thought). After I started reading the book, as well as a few physical therapy visits, my pain is 90% gone in my hand. It has been over a year since it has felt like this. I would like to see a professional to perhaps uncover what emotional trauma I may be experiencing in my subconscious mind. But I've no idea where to start. My mother sees a counselor and asked if I want to see one. But I'm not sure if a counselor is what I need. Frankly, I am happy with my life (at the conscious level). I merely am experiencing something in the subconscious that must be uncovered and confronted before it causes me any more harm. When I heard counselor I was thinking I may need something like a therapist or a psychologist. Frankly, not even sure the difference between all those. Or is there a way I could locate a Doctor Who practices the same medicine pioneered by Sarno? Any advice for me?
