Question I am a firm believer in TMS methodology, having had 14 years of progressively worsening back pain that could not be treated with traditional approaches. After suffering from 1979 to 1993, I read Dr. Sarno's book, attended one session at Rusk, and have been basically free of back pain and sciatica since that time. However, the site of pain seems to migrate to different locations, and I have to remember that TMS doesn't confine itself to the back. My current situation: I have been an avid runner and cyclist for 45 years. My life currently is extremely stressful with work and teen-daughter problems. Almost two weeks ago, after a particularly strenuous bike ride, my right knee started hurting while descending stairs. Two weeks of rest and physical therapy have not provided any relief whatsoever. My hunch is that this is just another bout of TMS, but I don't want to develop a chronic condition with my knees in the event it is not. Interestingly enough, my two sisters, several weeks before my "injury," reported knee pain, and a good friend was complaining of her upcoming knee-replacement surgery a day or so before my problems started. Thoughts? Strategies? I'm going crazy not running or cycling. It provides tremendous relief from the struggles facing me these days. Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
