Hi all. Quick summary of my path so far: Nov 2015 - Dec 2016 (a little over a year) - lower back and right leg pain. Tried everything. Pain constantly at 8+ out of 10, used a cane for a while. Jan 2017 - discovered Sarno May 2017 - pain under control, maybe a 1 or 2 out of 10 June 2017 - pain totally gone. Hallelujah! mid-July 2017 - small (in duration and intensity) relapse in TMS symptoms, surrounding a family reunion. Apparently my mom stresses me out. end-July 2017 - full relapse in TMS symptoms, surrounding a camping trip. Over the past week my pain is back to 8-9 out of 10 pretty consistently. Miserable. I'm following the new program and find it to be a good refresher as well as providing some new ideas. I'm more than a little frustrated with this relapse. I thought it might be tied to those specific stressful events and would quickly fade away afterwards. But it took me 3 minutes to put my socks on this morning - I can't bend my torso down or my legs up far enough for hands to reach feet, without a whole lot of grunting. I walk around like a 90-year-old again. (I'm 44.) Interestingly, the pain jumps all over the place. It feels like my body is a circuit board with pain lights flashing all over the place. "Let's try the ankle, now the right buttock, upper back, lower back. Ooh, let's settle into those hips for a long while." So, it's very clear to me that this is the TMS symptom imperative and not a bunch of new injuries I have no memory of. I felt like I had a pretty good self-care routine going. Meditation several times a week, exercise, reading, playing the guitar and doing lots of things I enjoy, not beating myself up. I'm not aware of any other new stress in my life. Work is as drama-free as it has been in years, family relationships are good. I'm trying to apply what I learned before. And trying to be patient. Has anyone experienced a similar back-and-forth? Any words of wisdom for me? Thanks.
