Chronic pain is an epidemic of our society.
goldcycle26 ...... I noticed you said you've had different diagnosis from each doctor. Yeah ... I've been there . That because they really don't know what's going on. Sad, but true. No reason to point fingers .... as they only know what they know.
I've had undiagnosed pain for many years in the ischial tuberosity area . . . as well as other chronic pains. I've been to many specialists over the years .... did all the tests ..... ran through the hoops . . . . .yet no one could ever tell me what was wrong. I was told the usual "it could be a entrapped, compressed or pinched nerve." I have since learned these terms are used by any medical person because they generally don't know what else to say. A truly compressed nerve will have no pain at all. Drugs did nothing for me..... and how could they? . . . They cannot heal.
I ran across a series of books by Dr. John Sarno. He discovered in his practice the rampant spread of what he terms TMS . Basically .. . . . real pain caused by repressed emotions . . . not anything actually physical. The mind can and will do anything to keep one from feeling emotional pain. Athletes are ripe for this as we have no time to feel or deal with any real emotions ,right? ...... just give me my damm bike and let me ride! Sounds great ...... but as I found out ..... I couldn't run from life forever . It's not easy dealing with the emotions of life ..... but it's a whole lot easier that a life of pain.
This subject is much deeper than the intent of this forum ..... but if you wish .... there is a tms forum here http://www.tmshelp.com/
full of athletes and non athletes alike who have overcome or greatly reduced the recurrence of pain from this.
