Widespread pain coming from depression ?!

Posted by ben on May 4, 2002, at 13:17:07

I do have widespread body pain (legs and arms) probably not fibromyalgia but perhaps of neuropathic cause - not known at the moment ! Many many tests (blood including rheumatic disorders and all hormones, x-ray, NCS, EMG) have been made without any results, so my pdoc sees it as symptom of my depression !? I was in good period of mood since long ago developing pain (5 months ago) in the lower limbs an arms...burning, pins and needles, stitching... worsening during the day.
Is this a somatization disorder or should this diagnosis not been made if there is a long standing depression ? Now I fight more than two years against my depression and when it seems to get really better I developed chronic pain - this has relapsed me back in depression ! I cant imagine such awfull pain coming from the brain !? Especially because it isnt headache, back pain, stomach pain or something else often seen in psychosomatic illnesses.
Tried several ADs (SSRIs, TCAs, Remeron, Manerix, Edronax...) during two years and now my pdoc wants me to put on Efexor/ Desyrel.
Any ideas suggestions, thoughts, inputs or comments.
That would bee fine ! Thanks a lot
