I noted with interest Moving Clouds post and reference to how pacing had aided recovery: http://www.tmswiki.org/forum/threads/walking-map-reading-and-achievements.810/ Pacing is often featured as a cornerstone of other Chronic Pain Recovery Programs. Here's my conundrum: 8 weeks of SEP/Unlearn Your Pain and trying to gradually increase daily activity and exercise. More symptoms on walking now worse than ever. I started to read the link posted by MC and quickly stopped fearing it would dilute my SEP/Schubiner/Sarno Work. More Physio (I have seen 6 of them and none have assisted in any way) diatribe....PACING. They say "Without it you'll be locked in a BOOM BUST pain cycle". My head tells me pacing is what's missing. Go back to baby steps and start again. It's a heartbreaking prospect. And, this is at odds with Schubiner/Sarno et al..?? Forest, you especially have benefited from challenging the mind to unleash learned pain patterns via extra movement. Any comments please?
