Hey everyone.... I know they used to say Chronic Pain is all in your head. Especially when they couldn't find any physical reason for the pain.
I know that nowadays most Doctors know better than that.......but when that Dr. looks at all your MRI's and Xrays/reports and looks at you and says " There's really nothing here that we can see is wrong".....part of me feels like she's telling me it's all in my head.
I'm just so confused.....when I sit down for any length of time...my sciatic nerve is just SCREAMING at me to get off it. I can't drive...watch a movie...read a book.. Hell I'm losing my job in the military because of this. And they can't see any thing to tell me why I'm hurting.
I think that's the worst kind of chronic pain....the type with no explanation
I've been reading about Dr. John Sarno, and his mind-body approach to back pain, and the idea that chronic pain syndrome is based on emotional stuff instead of physical reasons. Has anyone here tried this method?
THanks for letting me vent.
