Hi Billiewells, first of all I really hope you are feeling better with all the support you are having from this wonderful site. I am replying to you because in your first post you mentioned you would love to hear from someone British. Well I am, I live in the South of England. I am afraid I cannot offer you much advice as I am still suffering myself (myofascial pain) but I will tell you that I have done a structured program with the help of a therapist for the past six months and I still have pain. However, after reading about the positive feed back and results that Somatic Experience can bring I decided to give it a go and am now currently having therapy via Skype with a lovely lady in London. I embarked upon this route as it was trauma which resulted in tension fear, anxiety and plus my TMS personality traits that fired up the pain as there is nothing else wrong with me (MRI scans, full body scans etc) all showing NAD. I know how TMS symptoms can make you a prisoner in your own home (I am very fortunate that I have a wonderful husband who supports me in every way) and it is so distressing because despite my age I have always been such an active healthy person, loving activity of every kind, hiking, cycling, dancing and travelling, even virtually demolished the inside of our bungalow ready for renovation not long before this trauma happened.So please believe me, we all understand how you feel and fully empathise with you. I have decided to start attending yoga as it will help me to go out into society again, as for the past 2 and half years all I do with a degree of confidence is two walks a day around familiar streets and coast nearby. I am going to start off with chair yoga (I know it sounds as if it is for old ladies!) but it is a start. What I am trying to say is perhaps you could do something like this where you can sit and join in the gentle stretching and exercise and meet other people. Also I am hoping to start "laughing yoga" . The only problem with this is that it is held at 7pm and this is sometimes when my pain is at its highest and I need to lie down. I will see. Try anything to enable you to be amongs other people and laugh as much as you can even if you don't feel like it as it gives the message to your nervous system that everything is ok. I wish you all the very best and sincerely hope you will find your way forward very soon.
