Pandamonium's story began when she "put her back out" pushing a sofa. This led to 10 years of disabling back pain caused, predominantly, by her fear and conditioning. In sheer desperation she searched the internet to see if surgery was an option for her annular fissure and instead discovered a link to Healing Back Pain by John Sarno and having read it in one sitting, she started to get her life back on track.


Launch Pad of Success Stories

Panda

PandaTYDS.jpg

In 1998 I pushed a sofa that was extremely heavy and I put my back out: I couldn't stand up straight and was taken to hospital by ambulance and given pain killing injections. This was the beginning of 10 years of back-pain episodes which became more and more frequent; usually I had pain with walking or movement, never when sitting and never with sciatica. The pain was usually in the right sacro-illiac joint, it was sharp and sudden; like a knife had been inserted and twisted. Once it started any movement was agony, often I couldn't take another step.

In desperation I googled “annular fissure” to see if surgery was an option, and after a while I saw a reference to John Sarno and his book Healing Back Pain. The reviews on Amazon made compelling reading; I read every single one and decided that after all the money I had spent on treatments it was worth £12 for a book even if it turned out to be rubbish.

Thankfully this was the start of my recovery, I read HBP and I saw myself and my symptoms described on every page, I was astonished and by the end of the book I believed that I had TMS and for the first time in 10 years I actually had hope that one day I might be pain free, it seemed to good to be true. I'd say that within 12 months of Healing Back Pain I am 90% better. Since I've been suffering for 10 years I wasn't expecting to be healed over night and so I am really pleased with my progress. Whilst I hope for a 100% recovery, I expect that this will become a life long journey and that's a good thing; TMS symptoms remind me to do my emotional work which in turn promotes a healthy mind and body.

One day I made a small discovery. Previously the pain I got from typing tended to happen AFTERWARDS - maybe a few hours later. Pretty scary, and a very effective tactic in making me afraid to overdo the typing, because I had no way of knowing if I was doing too much. But I noticed a change: I was getting (slight) pain DURING the typing. I didn't push on with typing when this happened, because I don't like pain. But when I noticed the change, I thought: "Gotcha!" This was an improvement, because it gave me more control. Even though I stopped when the pain came on, I would tell myself it was TMS, and it would be gone by next day at the latest.

Since October 2005 I have completely stopped using voice recognition (except for the very odd occasion when I'm in a hurry and want to write a lot of text quickly) and just use keyboard and mouse at work and at home. I've become an Internet addict, so I use the computer a lot at home in addition to at work. NO PAIN! Thanks to Dr Sarno and the people who encouraged me to continue.

I overcame severe RSI in my hands and lifelong pains including back, neck, and plantar faciitis, to name a few. As a result, I have been able to rediscover my childhood love of sport and exercise which I had abandoned so many years ago. Here’s a photo of me competing in an Ironman race in 2011, something which I would have considered impossible just a handful of years ago.

I am on every page of MBP. 28 years of back pain (on and off, lasting for weeks at a time), the whole works. I read MBP and get somewhat better. I see Dr. Sarno 1 year later (2004) and I get better some more. In 2005 I have vertigo and Dr. Sarno sends me to Dr. Bob Evans for counseling. This accelerates the process. In 2007 I have an ulcer. In 2008 I have a 6 month bout with sever back pain. Dr, Sarno confirms my MRI is the same and "I have more work to do" (with Dr. Evans). At this point I say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, I am just not having back pain anymore. I start doing more mindfulness and meditation and things start to improve more rapidly. But it is a journey (approximately one life time) and I am still on it.

When I first read TMP my visual migraines disappeared straight away. However the real reason I was reading the book was because of my RSI. I read the book 2 or 3 times, but the RSI (which I'd had for over 10 years) didn't go away. I was very enthusiastic about the book, but because my RSI didn't go away, I eventually decided it wasn't going to work. I think I was expecting a miracle cure or something. Here's the Full Account
