    I have been suffering for 9 years now after my right hand surgery for inguinal hernia which left me in pain. After some time, the pain started in the left part, from left rib cage to left pubis, and down into the genitals, rectum and up to the left buttock. In my 8 yrs career going to the physicians, chiropractors, pain clinics, physiotherapist, psychotherapist...nothing has changed, the symptoms just keep arriving. I cannot function at all.
    I came across John Sarno's book - Heal back pain, 5 years ago but it did not help me.
    Last year I was diagnosed with Nutcracker syndrome but in my country there is no treatment available for it.
    I am now thorn between this Nutcracker diagnosis which could explain all this pain mainly situated on the left side, but maybe is TMS or it all started as TMS years ago after failed hernia surgery.
    This is my last resort to try to fix this problem and to be pain free. I hope to see some improvements through structured programme.

    If you work thru one of the programs on the tmswiki site (like the Pain Recovery program at the top of the page) you may find that if it is tms you will work your way thru it and recover. If it is Nutcracker syndrome 75% of people get better without treatment - so either way there is likely to be a good outcome... good luck

    Hi hecate105,
    thank you so much for your reply.
    I just started with structured educational program, today is my third day. I could not find in this site is it better to start with structured program, or with Pain recovery program. Or I can take both in the same time? I wanted to start with Pain recovery program as I am in a much pain.
    Yesterday I felt a little bit better, but today the pain is back. This gives me a hope that it could be TMS.

    For a long time, almost 9 years I have been to numerous doctors, specialist...around 100 of them for sure. On my last MRI exam they found Nutcracker syndrome. I was happy and relieved by the fact that now that I have finally got diagnosed, there must be a cure for this disease. After I did my research on diagnosis, I felt hopeless and despair. And from that moment on, my health issues only got worse.

    I used search bar to see if there is anyone in here who has Nutcracker syndrome and got better. I could not find any post about it. Could you maybe provide a link to any successful story?

    Thank you again! :)

    I expect there will be a foreum for sufferers - that would be the place to look. This forum has plenty of stories from people who have recovered from TMS - in its many forms...
    I too spent years getting diagnosed - fibromyalgia in my case. But nothing medical or alternative helped until i discovered this forum and Sarno's books.... The SEP worked for me - the Pain Recovery Prog was done after I became better... I think use whatever one you feel comfortable with - they will probably cover the same ground.... My problem was chronic pain as well as fatigue and the SEP worked really well =- but it is only a start! I think many of us need to do a lot of work on ourselves to get totally better . It is certainly worth it!! You are worth it - so just take it day by day and be kind to yourself!!
