Hi, I've been struggling with body pains for a little over a year but discover ing Dr Sarno in mid October has given me relief. I had gone through a few episodes of debilitating pain and being bedridden during weeks to being 80% functional or close to be in the same shape as prior to my injuries. The issue now is that the sharp pain in my hips and tailbone area and piriformis such as burning, pins and needles comes up every other day. I've been following this forum since November and completed the structure d program of journaling except for the last day of it. Journaling reopened the wounds of my abusive childhood but somewhat helped me learn the roots of my Tms. The forum thanks to the generous Tms veterans and heroes like @Baseball65 has mostly helped me. I recently read 'the body keeps the score' book and have practiced the tips offered to heal my childhood traumas. I know I have a pretty long recovery road since I was violently abused for over 10 years by my stepdad as a child til my teens and lost my elder sister who died because of the same trauma when she was 32. I'm lucky that I'm still alive and most importantly able to take care of my children who need me. In my treatment, I'm also working on lessening panic attacks and gaining self confidence by trying to only observe my pain and thoughts without judging and letting them dissipate like Eckert Tolle suggests. I saw many doctors who ruled out any structural problems based on my MRI s. PT and chiropractor visits only made my symptoms worse. Acupuncture helped a tiny bit since they told me STRESS was the main culprit but I stopped anyway after a month. Fast forward to today, I'm much better . I want to go back to weighlifting , mostly deadlifting, but the fact that my pain is on and off every other day gives me concerns and discourages me. Has anyone dealt with Pain every other day? Thanks for your input!!!
