This is my first post here and I am feeling very hopeless and depressed right now. I have been living with chronic pain for 7 years (I am only 20). Initially, I had really bad constant stomach pain, then following year I developed constant aching pain and tingling in both of my hands. Went to too many doctors to count, had a multitude of tests done, but no physical cause for the pain was found. In the last year, I have developed extremely horrible cramping in my pelvic region, again had an ultrasound done, nothing wrong was found. Was prescribed birth control pills to attempt to decrease the cramping and help with the pain but thus far the pills have only made me extremely moody and crying all the time. I also have a history of recurring major depressive episodes and anxiety. Finally, in august I hurt my shoulder in a work related injury, I have had a lot of pain and limited use of my right arm associated with this. I just had an ultrasound done hoping to identify the injury, but the results showed everything looks fine. So now I am dealing with chronic, fairly constant pain in 4 spots in my body. I'm feeling EXTREMELY hopeless and defeated - the pain in my body has been spreading and worsening over the years and it feels like its never going to get better. I don't know what to do, because most treatment has done little to alleviate the pain. I have had a lot of mental health problems over the last 7 years as well, and have read that mental pain can cause physical pain. My neurologist also concluded I may have an overactive nervous system that causes pain with no physical cause. I just feel so alone and don't know what to do at this point. Its really hard to stay at all optimistic that the future will get better for my health... If anybody has ways that help them cope please share.
