Question So I have been doing the SEP for the past 31 days and in the beginning, I felt hopeful and felt that my pain was a bit more manageable(primarily hip and low back.) I walked with intention and even try jogging a bit. Now for the past couple of days, I have been working up to a full blown back spasm, and today, I am doubled over. I tend to be pretty analytical and have fully embraced the concept of TMS; I am also a chronic Lymie so moving targets is something that I am all too familiar with. Since all movement is excruciating, I just took an advil to see if I can cut the intensity. Granted, I was sleeping on a bed that was harder than my usual bed and wondering, was I waiting for this to happen? Has my previous success irritated my mind into making me really re-think that it is actually physical? I am open to all ideas and am sure that I am going to nail this; I just feel someone defeated today and wonder how long this will take. With others who have had spontaneous healing, I think that they haven't really looked at their issues before. I have been in therapy many times and know that this is most likely the reason for my chasing down every doctor in town to see if they can help me. This is the first time I am actually doing something on my own. Thank you for any wisdom you can share.
