Hi all, I am grateful for this community as it is a great place to connect over our shared experiences. I'd just like to complain about my experience since I feel that I usually don't allow myself to. I'm frustrated that I haven't made progress in eliminating my glute/leg pain and anxiety in a good while now. I remember reading the Healing Back Pain book in October 2019 and thinking that I was going to eliminate my sciatica issue forever and fast and that that would be the end of it. My pain shifted more to right glute muscular pain and has since stayed with me even though I stay active (play soccer/walk/run/lift things). I have been seeing a TMS doctor since about March 2020 now and I am grateful to have access to one, so my problem is for sure 100% TMS. It just sucks that I have all this knowledge and support towards treating this, yet the pain can still be intense at times. I also plan on being a physician that helps people with TMS, but I sometimes feel bad because I want to be able to eliminate my own symptoms before I reach that part of my career. I also worry that my struggles with anxieties are a roadblock as well since they affect my daily function (struggle to focus on reading/talks, memory is affected). Yet, I don't necessarily fear the anxiety in most cases. Such a struggle! Thanks for reading!
