I completed about two weeks of this program and successfully treated a flare up of TMS after a number of years pain free. Now a few weeks later, the pain has returned in a completely new site, in my upper leg/groin. I am sure it is TMS because it occurred at the end of a very stressful week where I had an argument with a family member and we are still not talking normally (which is very rare for me), I took part in a week of training which was very challenging and I was highly concerned about passing, especially as I took part with colleagues, and I was concerned about getting injured, because it involved strenuous physical activity. I also felt stressed about being away from my regular job because there are many projects I am working on and half way through the week my access to emails accidentally got blocked, so I wasn't able to be in contact with colleagues. This was resolved but on the day the pain started, I was feeling very stressed, felt the need to perform and prove myself, felt like I was pressurising myself and felt like I had little time for myself. The pain was very mild on the first day, then on Friday it increased a bit. Yesterday it was a bit more sore but during a running session it became much more painful. I journalled yesterday and got in touch with my emotions (which I have not been doing so much lately) and read through Dr Sarno's book. That seemed to help and I am posting on here to prove to myself that I have experienced lot of stress recently and probably have a lot of repressed anger and anxiety. The pain has moved around a bit over the past couple of days, which is also a characteristic of TMS and this has happened just before a long training run I am due to do as part of preparation for a race for charity in 3 weeks. So I'm feeling stressed and angry that the pain has come back and am going through the principles of the SEP program and 'Healing Back Pain' book again. Thanks for reading and all the best with your recoveries.
