anxiety or depression?
1 Replies
sue - October 2

I have been diagnosed with fibro, and until now have refused to take medication for any of my symptoms. I do take supplements. Lately I have this terrible feeling and can't tell if I'm depressed or if it is just anxiety. Any thoughts on how to tell the difference before I go to the doctor?

There are several definitions of anxiety but it covers a feeling of worry,upset, uncertainty and fear that comes from thinking about some threat or danger. Such as the Fibromyalgia. Depression, there are several different types of depression, it covers feelings of sadness, dejection, emptiness, lack of motivation. What exactly is your terrible feeling? Having this condition can make you anxious because it is so finicky and you look well and people do not understand and you are trying to find support to help you through this difficult time. With this condition doctors normally put you on medication for depression and anxiety and also for some of your symptoms you may be experiencing. If your doctor is well versed in this condition he/she will be able to guide you through this difficult time and it always helps to have a support group. Let us know how you are doing and that you are not alone
