Depression with Anxiety
A Common Duality for Fibromyalgia Sufferers
Unfortunately depression with anxiety is a common obstacle for people living with fibromyalgia. If untreated, it can lead to a severe reduction in your quality of life.
Many can attribute these symptoms to ongoing chronic pain, lack of sleep and a constant intake of energy sapping medications.
Despite the common forms of depression many are familiar with,
fibromyalgia depression has its own characteristics. Living with chronic pain for long periods of time can have a profound effect on your mental and physical well being. This is why it must be treated immediately and effectively.

The anxiety would surface without warning, and would be followed by excessive sweating. This would then lead to heart palpitations and an overwhelming sense of panic. It was even more pronounced when under extreme stress.
In addition, the inability to contain or stop the constant pain in my joints and muscles added to the uncertainty of not knowing if I was ever going to get through this ordeal. This sent me into a depressive state of mind that I hope to never experience again.
When you've tried every pain killer, muscle relaxer, anti-inflammatory, and anti-depressant without any lasting effect, it starts to break you down little by little.
Living with this disease has made me look at pain in a whole new light. I will never question someone again when they tell me they're having difficulty with chronic pain. It's truly a humbling experience.
