I have pain and depression and it does keep me from working. But I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. As I said before, I spent two years in bed, listening to life go on without me. It was horrible.
I got the pain under control with narcotics. And then got amphetamine to help with the fatigue. It saved my life. The pain is real, even though people think it isn't. There is a glitch in our nervous system that causes us to feel the pain. I found that moving around helps me from being so sore and stiff. It is hard, I know, but start gradually and that helps you build up to maybe taking a walk everyday. That really makes me feel good.
