Question: When was the last time you exercised or did another physical activity? What was this activity? How did it make you feel physically and emotionally? If it is has been a while since you last exercised, why? Last I worked out was in Oct 2014. I have been a regular gym goer. I have been working out for last 7-8 years 4-5 days a week. I love doing weight training. Ever since my pains started in Macrh 2014, everyone Dr. PT relatives friends family, said don't workout. Workout is the reason for pain. I didn't heed. I continued but started slowing down the frequency and weights. All my life i felt so good after working out physically and emotionally. Workout pulled me out of my divorce and any other trauma i faced in life. Workout was my life away from my real life. I loved working out. In Sep 2014 my pain symptoms reduced so i started increasing my workout frequency and weights. The symptoms returned with vengeance a month later and this time i got scared. I blamed that one day in Sept going to gym and doing barbell chest press...oh my neck has been stiff baldy just because of that day's workout and ever since then i stopped. I feared increasing the pain or damaging myself physically any more. I felt guilty that I should have listened to PT and not worked out. So since September 2014 i gave up what I loved the most, what made me feel happy, confident, truly powerful, away from all stressors....but since have started reading about TMS and now that i feel i have TMS and TMS but nothing else..I have decided to return to workout. Jan 25th 2015, I want start again. I know my unconscious mind will try to trick me...may send more pain but I am not giving up...I am yelling and telling my brain don't abuse or trick me..you cover is blown..send as much pain as you want since I am not stopping anymore and eventually you will have to go AWAY !!!!
