I went to a specialist today and he thinks I have myosfascial pain syndrome. Which is a fancy way of saying that when I was in a car accident 6 years ago I got whiplash that never fully healed and probably never will. I was diagnosed with depression 10 years ago and have been in treatment ever since. What are the chances that these two are related? I've heard that some anti-depressants are used to treat fibromyalgia and what this doc thinks I have, so does that mean that the pain is made worse by depression? Has anyone else been diagnosed with a chronic pain condition and depression? If so, which came first? Do you think they're related?
