Me, either. Yes I realize scientifically just a handful of us saying it here or wherever is seen as anecdotal, but....I lived it. When I first really got depressed about 7-8 years back, really no other facts or circumstances in my life, physical or emotional, had changed *but* the depression. No, not science but just a layperson's observation of herself. Hindsight even makes it clearer, too. I was in some of the best shape of my life, and still I had the strangest aches and pains. When I came out of depression, with no pain medications or other meds to treat anything physical, interestingly enough all those unique types of aches that I never could figure out disappeared.
I am a believer.
