I'm restarting the SEP program this week. I started getting left hand pain in July 2013. It slowly became pain that spread to my forearm my elbow and started causing intense pain and hand tremors. By April 2014 I had given up college and left a stocking job for cashiering. I gave up guitar and music and writing. April-December I saw several doctors and specialists. I had X-rays two mri's two nerve conduction studies and an emg. Nothing was found and even though a few doctors seemed concerned I never got a straight answer. I got tendinitis , RSI, nerve irritation as my answers but nothing conclusive. I tired physical therapy with only minimal success on two occasions. By April 2015 the pain spread to my right hand and alternated back and forth. I read some of sarnos work in May but didn't take it to hearT. In mid June in started reading again and started the SEP program. By mid August my pain had mostly vanished. It was replaced by bad panic and anxiety. The anxiety went down some and my pain came back in November. Now I'm dealing with both. Neither are severe but both are persistent. I think I quit too early and I need to see everything g through this time.
