These pain flair ups are normal. The people that don't recover from Tms are the ones that try these methods, naturally have a couple of flair ups in pain once they return to activities, and then stop trying. It's not linear. There will be ups and downs. Don't measure your success by your pain levels. Measure your success by the fact your not avoiding these painful activities. Feel comfortable being in pain because it's meaningless. The physical sensation of pain is not that bad. It's the emotional side that comes with it that is the challenge. That feeling of fear, anxiety, worry about the future. Try and tackle this emotional side. Don't be afraid. The pain is benign.
