I have been doing really very well with my TMS for several years, essentially pain free for at least 3 years since my first terrible episode, which thankfully led me to Dr. Sarno and actually this forum. For the past 2 weeks or so, my sciatica has come back. I am good at working through it, still keepin up with weight lifting 3 times a week and work and daddy duty and trying to be a better husband. I felt the lead in for my recurrence was a big test I took at the beginning of this month, continued stress and worry over my kids, especially my 9 year old special needs daughter, plus all the rest of the anger and angst I carry with me all the time. The biggest problem I am facing now is that I cannot sleep more than 2 hours without significant pain waking me. Most nights I end up sleeping at the dinning room table, sitting up in a chair. I’m pretty tired. I feel a lot better when I get up and move around, but have been eating meals standing etc, watching TV while standing too. If I could get some regular sleep it would be amazing! As soon as I lay down I can start to feel things tightening up. I yell at my butt, at my brain to cut the crap out but in the end (pun intended) it doesn’t help. When I am calm, I am certain that things will get better and I try to be patient, but in the middle of the night I do get a little desperate sometimes. Anyone have some suggestions on how to approach this better? Thanks in advance!
