I'm trying to figure this out and would love some opinions. Two days ago I had what I think was a real TMS breakthrough moment. I got a lower back spasm and literally told myself clearly that I knew nothing was wrong with my back and that it was caused by a stressful situation. I worked to fix something in pain, exercised in pain, went on an errand and it was gone. Today I took a strenuous Private Pilates session with my teacher and No lower back pain....yet the tension in my neck and mid trapezoid still linger..not pain but tension...so where am I going with this....maybe I'm not as convinced there isn't a physical element? Severe degeneration, a history of neck tension...could this be my stumbling block? Or is it merely my conditioned body response that has yet to heal?
