Hi all- You have been so helpful with your support. Thank you. So while my original issue ( back pain) is not too bad (not gone), other secondary issues have been horrible!! This week it's been neck pain/muscle spasm, shoulder twinges, wrist, insomnia, and anxiety. What?!? I've heard similar things that indicate incidences of symptom substitution, and yes, I'm doing the SEP and journaling and yes, I'm getting very mad at my brain and yelling at it... But it's so hard! Hard not to fear these pains when they're so real. I just want to hear that this is par for the course, and of course, moral support!!! Thanks!
