Hello, I am a 32 year old new mom to 4 month old twins. I have severe back/hip and sciatic pain. It has been going on for 5 months, however the last 8 weeks the pain has increased significantly, and my mobility decreased (can't walk, stand or sit, and now lying down is becoming painful...) This is extremely difficult with two young babies. A CT can confirmed a large herniation at L4/5. I have read Dr Sarno's Healing Back Pain. There are no TMS doctors near where I live, so I am having to go off blind faith that this is what is causing my pain... What I am struggling with at the moment is that my symptoms and their location are so characteristic of an L4/5 herniation... I don't get odd pains anywhere else, and the pain doesn't shift. If anyone has any advice on how to get passed this (wondering if it is TMS, or if my pain is actually from the herniation) that would be greatly appreciated!
