Like others have said before, I feel like I have tried it all. Muscle relaxant, Ostheopaths (4), Acupuncture, Physical Therapy (3), Reiki, Chiropractors (4), Kinesiology (2), Personal trainer, yoga, swimming, quitting running, quitting biking, natural remedies, disk decompression protocole, getting a new office chair, getting a new bed (2), getting new pillows (3), changing sleeping positions, and others I don’t even remember how they are called. I refuse to make the calculation of time and money I have spent on fixing my lower back pain over the last 10 years, it would make me too furious. I received a diagnosis of buldging discs and mild vertebrae arthrosis. I have 2 MRIs reports, 3 years apart, and the newer one looks kinda better than the older one. Regarding the pain, nothing makes sense : irrestpective of what I am trying or what I am changing in my habits and lifestyle, the pain randomly comes and goes. It does not correlate with any logical structural explanation for it. I am completely sold on the fact that there is nothing structurally wrong with me. I happen to have a number of other mild health issues which are all symptoms of a disfunctional hormonal balance or imflammation, but never related by any health professional to an identified disease. I believe they are also in some way symptomes of to the same syndrome. On the psychological front, I have also been working a lot in recent years on improving how I experience my life. My main issue has been to recognise, understand and express my emotions. This was identified before I heard about TMS. I am 100% convinced that my emotional and psychological state has a direct impact on my back pain and possibly other health imbalances I am experiencing. I could also see some “conditioned” occurrence of the pain, coming from all the information I have been collecting over the years regarding the Dos and Don’ts of back pain. Since I completed “Healing back pain” about a week ago and have been browsing through TSM Wiki, I tried the suggestions and methods whenever my pain was occuring. I have also resumed exercise, after having stopped everything for almost 2 months. Right now I am not pain free, I feel stiff, from the lack of exercise, sore, from resuming exercise quite intensely, and the conditionned pain is still here, mostly while seating (office chair, car) and bending forward. However my fear and worry about the problem I thought the pain was a symptom of is totally gone. When the pain comes intensely, say shooting down the leg while driving, I usually can control it and after a matter of minutes it is gone. I want to start running again, going back to yoga, do things in the house without fear, exercise intensely to be healthier and elevate my moods. I am committed to complete the program each day to reverse and overcome 10 years of worry, fear, misinformation and conditionning.
