WOW I really thought I had finished with back pain created by TMS. After suffering from TMS back pain since my teen years and then discovering the root of it from Sarno's books, I have been essentially back pain free for over 4 years. When I felt a slight pain coming on, I would be able to have it stop very quickly or not come on at all. However, just yesterday I bent down and VOILA my lower back "snapped" and has been in terrible pain ever since. Now, I know nothing actually snapped, and I know this is oxygen that has been taken away from certain muscle areas, but that doesn't seem to help it go away. And no over the counter pain relievers seem to do any good. I have had TMS equivalents since learning the routine, but not back issues. So, this feels like a setback. Any good advice out there to help me through this new occurrence?
