Depression/anxiety both go hand in hand with CP as some one else said. I have suffered from Anxiety/ nervousness/depression all of my life as far as I can remember. I think I was born that way.My childhood was not happy due to this. Now I have been suffering from Chronic pain for 16 years, every waking minute of my life. I have been on nerve pills off and on over the years, but it has ben a while until about 2 months ago. I told my Doctor that I needed something for my nerves and he gave me Ativan. It has really helped with the anxiety. I take Hydrococdone 5/500 and Soma and Neurtonin for the pain. It dulls it unless I overdo and then I am in real trouble. Some days I can't do anything and other days I can do enough to get by. I get nervous because of all the things that need to be done and I just am not able to do anymore. It causes the anxiety. I will be going to a pain clinic as soon as my stupid former doctor ever sends my records to the pain clinic. I think he is toying with me. We parted on a sour note. I love my new Primary. He is the one who gave me the Ativan.
Good Luck and I hope you get some relief soon!
