This reminds me of a discussion with my dr. Does pain cause depression or does depression cause pain? I see a many of us are on anti depressants as well as pain meds. I'm on two. My answer was I didn't really care which way it went, I was in pain that needed to be delt with.
I traded my daughtor for an angel in 1984, I started my first anti-depressant in 2001, my lower back issue and pain management started in 1996. If the time line is an indicator The pain came first. Losing Alex was part of the sadness and depression, but it evidently didn't cause the pain.
Just my 2 cents
