I used to carry my special pillow everywhere and could not drive even short distances. This all changed when I realized that I had TMS. I stopped all my treatment, and after a few weeks of journaling the pain went away. I started living a normal life. Howevey, yesterday I drove for 3 hours and now my back is in a lot of pain. I understand that this is a conditioned response, but would want some advice on what to do about it.
