Thanks again, Ezer. I've ordered his book 'A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose'.

I am endeavouring to follow a mind/body therapy approach in the hope that my pn-like pain will heal. However, I've found it somewhat difficult to recognise, name, feel and release my emotions (re what Ezer advised to try, in respect to his positive personal experience with mind/body work). Recently though I found a webpage, which is helping me to work on getting in touch and releasing my emotions and - as I have read other forum members express that they were/are also having difficulties - I thought I'd post a link to it, just in case it might help anyone else http://www.trans4mind.com/heart/emotions3.html#list1

Best to all :)

Just thought I'd post - in case anyone might be interested - the following article http://www.decodedscience.org/distract- ... alth/45000 The research paper behind the 'distraction' technique described in the article re dealing with/'defusing' upsetting memories can be found here http://scan.oxfordjournals.org/content/ ... su039.full The technique is working wonderfully well for me. I haven't lost the memories of the upsetting events from my past that I have used the technique on, but I am now pretty indifferent to them and, so far - after a number of weeks - I continue to be indifferent to them.

Mind-body therapy helps ease low back pain

Psychosocial factors play important roles in pain and associated physical and psychosocial disability. Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), another mind-body approach, focuses on increasing awareness and acceptance of moment-to-moment experiences including physical discomfort and difficult emotions.


Brand new study on back pain and mind body treatment vs. medical modalities. This is not about chronic pelvic pain I reckon but my experience and the experience of a few other members that have recovered from CPPS show that a parallel can be made.

I found this interesting article : https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/ha ... c-symptoms
"Yet even when a patient accepts their symptom is being caused by an emotion-an exceptionally difficult barrier to surmount---the trauma that caused the symptom in the first place is often shown to be so ugly that both patient and doctor can readily understand why the patient's mind converted it into a physical symptom in the first place: even the mind itself believed the emotional trauma to be easier to handle that way"

Over the weekend I've been reading a book by Suzanne O'Sullivan called "It's all in your head". It has really altered my view of my illness and has made me think deeply about how pain symptoms can be so real and so disabling yet can be caused entirely by the subconscious.
Honestly, I think everyone who has been diagnosed with a chronic pain illness for which there is no objective evidence of disease should read this book. I don't think a positive nerve block is objective evidence of bodily disease, as invariably it only temporarily-and at best- stops the symptom for a short period of time. Reports of cures after nerve blocks are as rare as hens' teeth. The evidence for "entrapment" is equally thin, and there has also been the recent study on cadavers that calls into question the notion that "entrapment" causes pudendal nerve pain. Why is it that people who have ligaments removed still have the pain?
Because of our social taboos about mental illness, most of us react forcefully against the idea that our pain could have a psychosomatic cause. and yet when you read this book you come to understand that a large proportion of doctors' consultations are taken up by patients who have no verifiable evidence of an organic disease and yet suffer from a range of troubling symptoms that are likely caused by their subconscious minds.
"pain is the commonest psychosomatic symptom and it is represented in every sort of hospital clinic."

O'Sullivan, Suzanne. It's All in Your Head: Stories from the Frontline of Psychosomatic Illness (p. 244). Random House. Kindle Edition.
The denial of stress seems to be inherent in conversion disorders. If unpleasant emotions have indeed been converted to a physical symptom, the patient is not always aware that they ever existed in the first place.
