I am def. not good at even admitting I am in pain. Writing this post does not come easy for me. Been reading Dr Sarno's book and I can sense the reality in what TMS is all about. My flare up this time is pain 24/7 and I seem un able to stop thinking about it/fearing it and fearing more pain...vicious cycle I know. I will keep reading Dr Sarno's book and the posts on this forum.Does anyone have a suggestion as to anything over the counter that has helped them w the pain? Tylenol/lidocaine or menthol patches...supplements? I know it is treating the symptom but having less pain would be profoundly healing for my Spirit and my mind and sense of well being..
