Hi everyone, I have suffered from back pain for the past 3 years and exhausted EVERY conventional, and alternative option; epidural injections, pain meds (of which I became addicted to), Chiro, ART, Yoga, Acupuncture, with zero relief other than the masking of pain meds. One month ago, I read "Healing back pain" and FINALLY found some relief...until last week. Not only did I read myself all over the pages, but my MRI showed herniated discs and Adema. Now that I reflect, I guarantee my four knee surgeries for torn menisci and current torn rotator cuffs are all TMS. My pain came back with a vengeance four days ago. I tried applying what I've learned in the book, ie; talking to my brain, thinking about my repressed emotions (anger) and started reading "Mind Body prescription). However, the pain has gotten so bad that I had to start taking my pain meds again. I have an appointment with Dr Raushbaum tomorrow, but does anyone know if I am missing anything. I REALLY need help! Please and thank you in advance.
