    Well it was the neurologist telling me that I got "Complex Regional Pain Syndrome"
    I just couldn't believe it. After 4 surgeries this is the answer modern medicine comes up with.
    But it looks like it is a way out for Doctors. Once they are out of any ideas or surgeries to perform just call it some sort of complex syndrome and prescribe zillions of pills to supposedly treat it. I was prescribed anti-epileptic drug Gabapentin as much as I can take it (up to 3000 mg a day) plus any NSAIDs as much as I can take it and because these pills will destroy my stomach also take Nexium to protect my stomach, go figure!?!

    WOW, when they don't know they give it just a name, and give a lot of medicines (as sweets) to their patients.

    I went to the doctor last december for my backpain and I get Tramacet, Diazepam, Diclofenac and Paracetamol 1000 mg. at the same time.
    It didn't work. I got delusions and had suicidal thoughts, and I became afraid of drug intoxication. Then I stopped the medicin.
    After watching the video of dr. John Sarno I could walk again. I believe 100% this is TMS.

    I wish you the best with your recovery.

    With love, Rozie.

    Hi, Arnie. I've been reading the news today that doctors are advised now not to prescribe drugs for patients with back ache, that they are called opiads that can be addictive, harmful, and don't relieve the pain anyway.
    I am confident that if you follow the SEProgram, you will discover the emotions you are repressing that are causing the pain.

    Here is some encouragement, from a recent post:

    "I often get pain in my stomach as a TMS symptom. Last night I felt it coming on after I laid down to sleep. I asked myself what emotions I was feeling, then took several breaths directed at the spot that hurt, and it was gone in minutes! I slept peacefully all night and woke up without any pain. – wife and mother of two young children."

    Wow, I thought the neurologist that I saw was bad prescribing pills like lollies.
    No wonder you had delusions. Good thing you stop taking those medications.
    I promised to myself not to take any drugs for my pain whatsoever also for anxiety.
    I find meditation very helpful for anxiety and trying to get some benefit out of it for my pain too.
    Which video of Dr Sarno have you watched?

    You can't find it on the internet. You must buy it, on the web of dr. Sarno.
    For me it was an eyeopener. It took 2.20 hours. It's worth to watch.

    When my body feels tense I drink a cup of tea extract of the hopplant.
    It relaxes the mucles, and you have a good sleep.

    Hello everybody, newbie posting for the first time here...

    After explaining my myriad of symptoms: "... and what do you want me to do?.."

    "It´s all in your head"

    "The pain pattern you are describing it´s impossible"

    Different docs all of them

    Really discouraging

    Thanks for your support and sorry for my grammar and spelling (English is my second language)
