Does this cause major depression?

 

Jean - December 11

Hi Barb: Yes, Fibromyalgia can cause depression and anxiety. Figure it out. Living with pain and discomfort for a long period of time but looking healthy like nothing is wrong with you. It's like dominos, people, family, co-workers, doctors start falling away from you because of so many different symptoms that may occur. This illness is just devistating in so many ways to so many people that it it wise to seek support from people who have it, psychiatrists who understand what is happening and getting in touch with the right doctors who can listen to you and treat you according to your many symptoms that may arise. These doctors are few and in between and we all are having problems with that one. But it can be a totally different story if the doctors would educate themselves and help the people with this condition and understand that while we see them for 15 minutes every 6 months they do not see the whole disease that comes down on us. I'm not sorry for being blunt on this because I am having trouble with my GP again. Why this happens I do not know but these proffessionals need to get it together. I suggest you seek good professional help and support and it may take time but do not give up, come back and talk to us. Hugs

I don't think fibromyalgia causes the depression in itself, I think it's a secondary thing from the pain. I think having pain all the time causes severe depression, anyway that is how it is with me !
Good Luck !
