Hi All, I've been at this TMS stuff for a while now. I am dealing with many different pains throughout my body. The exciting thing is, I've had some success with my lower back!! I have gone from incredibly limited movement about 6 months ago to picking up my kids and, in the last month or so, have experimented with jogging for a few minutes at a time. This is huge, as I hadn't done either of these in a very long time. While I'm having this success, I'm having some very frustrating setbacks in a few areas. The one that is really plaguing me right now is my left foot. About a year and a half ago I broke my 5th metatarcil stepping on a piece of lego (yes, a piece of lego!). It took forever for the bone to heal. The pain has never gone away and really flares up every few weeks, even after the bone healed a year ago. My foot has always been a bit swollen since all of this happened a year and a half ago. In the last few days, the pain has gotten worse and the swelling has increased a bit. I have been back to the foot doctor a few times in the last year due to the pain and they keep telling me it can take a while for the nerves to settle down after a break. The pain moves from the top of my ankle all the way down to my toes, on the top and bottom of my foot. The swelling is always in the same place though - slightly above the break area. I am really struggling with the TMS diagnosis, as there was a real injury at this location. The pain doesn't really seem to match what the injury was though, as it moves all over the place, which seems weird (I broke the same bone 12 years ago and did not have this kind of pain). The swelling is really throwing me off, as I know that Sarno and other TMS doctors didn't seem to think that swelling could be a symptom of TMS. I am going back to the foot clinic next week, as I am starting to get desperate. Can anyone share any experiences with something somewhat similar - ie, swelling (physiological changes), an old injury still giving them grief, etc.? I was so excited that I was finally able to start running, but now I am worried that I will be injuring my foot more so I am leaning towards not trying to run through the pain for fear it will make things worse. There are no TMS doctors that I know of anywhere near where I live, or I honestly would just go see someone to help me figure this out! If anyone can help share some insight it would be much appreciated!! Thank you!
