Could your pain be all in your head?

Could your pain be all in your head?

Now your brain is entirely focused on your pain rather than on your emotions. How I came to believe all of this…my Injury History 2002 - Start running by training for a half marathon 2005 - Run first marathon 2007 - First major injury: IT band Syndrome which restricted running for a few months, required PT …all occurred while suddenly leaping my pace to hit a BQ goal I wasn’t ready for 2009 - Second major injury: Dislocated knee cap (runner’s knee) -- occurred a few months after the stressful wedding Otherwise the last 12 years have included little bouts of twinges and aches, but nothing that truly sidelined me and I now credit much of that to what I learned during the 2009 injury. At that point my IT Band still frequently hurt, but never enough not to run…but that injury felt never ending until I read Dr Sarno’s book and was literally running again a week later.
