I am a 48 year old pretty healthy average weight female and I live in NYC. I had knee TMS ( chondromalacia and some arthritic changes in my left knee- Sarno diagnosed it back in 2010.) I have had some success in pain reduction there. I have had a hard time accepting the diagnosis in full due to the MRI's. I have also had a LOT of fear around doing things. Hence I stopped doing yoga and began an exercise program in swimming. Last year my shoulder(s) were giving me pain- I used to swim 2 to 3 miles a week. I saw a few doctors who told me I had the beginnings of frozen shoulder on my left side and overuse on the right. I did NOT get an MRI for fear of making me feel way worse. I did PT, prolotherapy and had some success in pain reduction and increased range of motion. I swam in florida 2x over Christmas and had some pain that went a way in a day. I swam once here in NYC 2 weeks ago and have had pain for the past 2 weeks. No doubt you can imagine how frustrated I feel. I am afraid to swim due to pain. It sucks to have the pain 24 /7 shooting down my arm (s). Can you help advise?
