I believe I have struggled for a long time with TMS. I was dx with spondylolisthesis a few years ago and was largely confined to home. I also struggled a lot with depression. Before learning about TMS, I had several nerve ablation procedures to kill the nerves in my back. This yields great results for about 6 months until the nerves grow back. The last ablation was last September, and in the meantime, I started doing a lot of reading about TMS. I really believed I had licked the back pain, and wouldn't need the ablation treatment again which is very painful. I'm leaving for a two month trip to Europe in two weeks, and this past Friday, the pain returned. I even dreamt about it last night. I'm trying to get into the doctor for another procedure, but in the back of my mind, I'm not sure that is the issue. I don't know what to do as the clock is ticking down to this trip. I may not be able to get an appointment. If I do, it will be tomorrow or Wednesday with a few days recovery. I just don't know if this truly is physiological or if it is stress and TMS. Help! Also, I have the "Unlearn Your Pain" book, and wanted to go through the workbook portion, but it is so darn big, and space is at a premium. Are there workbook type books for TMS (journaling prompts, etc) that are available on Kindle? Thanks!
