Hello my name is Michael and I'm relatively new to the forum. I was diagnosed with TMS January of this year. I've had prior herniated disc surgery (never will I let anyone do that again) and was in horrific shape this winter, almost to the point of disability. With the help of some friends who were TMS sufferers, I was able to avoid hospitals, medications, PT, etc. I thought I was on my way to being pain free (with the help of Sarno and Ozanich) combined with the fact I began jogging, push ups and even signed up for a volleyball league this spring. Yesterday and then this morning my TMS has launched an assault on me that put me back in a state of panic and fear. The pain this morning was excruciating and I couldn't even bend to pick up my daughter. My entire leg was throbbing from hip to knee to heel. I took a walk and almost couldn't make it through (thank god for the Rocky soundtrack). I tried my best to be mindful and repeat that the pain is psychological (which I know it is). I was planning on hitting golf balls for the first time since TMS this weekend and my first volleyball game is Monday. I don't want the pain to frighten me and win. I know others on the forum have had to battle with its ugly return and reluctance to go away from being a distractor. Is there any advice from the group? Should I fight through the pain and go through the activities as planned? Thanks in advance for your help.
