I found about TMS two days ago and instantly bought one of Sarno's books. I finished reading The Mindbody Prescription earlier today, and I could relate to everything in the book, especially the personality traits. I've been experiencing all sorts of aches for the last two years. I have a tendency to tense up whenever I'm stressed or anxious. My current pain (and the worst one so far) involves both of my wrists and forearms. Typing and mousing hurt like crazy, but I can write and work with my hands just fine. Anyway, as much as I liked the book, my pain has gotten significantly worse ever since I finished it. I'm in terrible pain at the moment. It's never been this bad. Nothing seems to be relieving the pain, not even a hot shower combined with massage, which usually works. I was wondering if this is just part of the healing process. Has anyone else experienced the same? I was actually expecting the pain to alleviate at least a little bit, now that I understand my condition better... But apparently the opposite thing happened.
