So, last year, I started having unexplained muscle and joint pain throughout my whole body. It gets worse with use and I can't walk for more than like 10 minutes before I hurt a lot. The pain does not go away until I sleep for the night, which doesn't always happen. I have been diagnosed with polyathralgia and polyarthritis, which is really just the symptoms. I've seen two doctors, a rheumatologist, and a physcial therapist and they all say that there is nothing medically wrong and that it's related to depression. They then tell me there is nothing more to do beyond the therapy and medication I'm already doing. I can accept that it's from depression, but I cannot accept that I can't do anything about it.
I was wondering if anyone had any advice on this type of pain caused by depression. Are there things I can try that might help relieve the pain? Pain relievers make me sick and I do go on walks when I can. Changing my diet is not currently finacially possible, and I haven't notice a food correlation anyways.
Are they allowed to do this.... ?https://www.dailystrength.org/user/profile/2080705Perhaps some one can look into it.
I got a new job about 7 months ago and started my master’s degree at the same time. I thought my life was going in the right direction, but lately I've felt stuck. The job is stressful because I feel like my boss hates me and I don't know why. It makes working hard. Every day I get up and feel like crap. I get headaches all the time and just feel down again. I don't want to get back on meds...
