Does anyone have experience with this I conquered back pain 2 years ago except for occasional twinges. I have osteoarthritis, but no longer catastrophize. One thing Sarno talked about regarding rage---sometimes the rage is about getting older. In the last half year, I have picked up an IBS diagnosis. My digestive system is very disturbed. Diet is limited, (low FODMAPS for those of you in-the-know. Symptoms are upper and lower GI. Am on anti-biotics. Various tests. In the course of a week, I retain so much water that my weight has jumped 20 pounds. Ten of the pounds were added in 2 days. I am a small person and I can't fit my clothes. Medical tests reveal nothing serious so far...but if this is MBS, it's really alarming. Biggest life stress is my daughter's wedding. She is a wonderful person but a perfectionist and highly critical of me. Feel free to respond on this thread or privately.
