GRJ WORKS!!! Now for the Bracing.....

Posted by lynn on September 13, 2001 at 11:26:10:

I have used the GRJ for 2 weeks and I am thrilled beyond belief. My GERD is almost completely gone!!!! I have gone to Barnes and Nobel and purchased some information on Stress Reduction (boy did I need that!).

So, here is what I am left with and how I hope to alleviate it:

My chest muscles feel like they are pulled or something. Occaisionally I have a bit of pressure by my sternum and then it goes over to my left arm pit. Then it goes away. Then it might show up over on my right arm pit. Then I will get a crook in my neck, which causes a sharp pain when I turn my head. Then that goes away. My chest area feels exhausted at times. I find myself massaging my front arm pit areas and the sides of my breasts for relief. I purchased a product from a local chiro (I don't know if I can say the name here) that helps freeze muscles and boy does that work great. I am drinking lots of hot green teas and am able to catch myself tightning up.

I have learned that I am a bracer. I tense up in my chest area when stressed, nervous, upset, etc. After about 10 months of considerable stress and anxiety, I must have locked my chest up but good.

Does anybody have any experience with these feelings also? I know I am on the right track (praying I am). I have found myself a wonderful therapist who works out of her home to help me with my anxiety and obessive thoughts. Our first appointment and we clicked. Unlike my last therapist who told me to "forget about it" and that I was "crazy", she totally understands why and what I'm going through. She explained that we are going to be doing cognitive therapy and that she has seen this before and we can work on it and I will be happy once again.

So, I feel like I have covered some bases here. What I would like to know, is if my symptoms are familiar to anyone. It just helps to know that I'm not alone.




Bracing...

Good to hear the GRJ is woring for you!!

I don't have the same kind of bracing, I tense up the muscles in my shoulders and neck and my pelvic floor when I'm under stress. I've been practicing SR and focusing on relaxing my pelvic floor for 6 months, and I'm making slow progress. What I've found recently is that if I focus on relaxing my shoulders, the pain in my neck and left shoulder is dramatically reduced. And I've done everything: chiropractic, massage, I've even had NST done by THE Gene Dobkin, the guy who teaches NST to everyone in the US. He kept saying "Does it still hurt", and the answer was always yes. I have gotten no results until after 6 months of SR I can now recognize that I'm bracing, and I can now relax those muscles. Heat helps temporarily as well, but the SR is what's really working on it.

So, do the SR, it's awesome.

Lynn, Glad to hear your gerd is doing much better. You have what I would say from my past is bracing. The longer it goes before you take care of it the worst it becomes and the longer it takes to recover from it. Sr really is the answer. Good luck.

It's called Biofreeze. You can get it at a Chiro Office or look it up on the internet. It is wonderfull. I have used it on the back of my neck for headaches at it worked great.

I hope I don't get in trouble for putting this on here.
