Mamanan, that sounds like a miserable experience! I did try the antidepressant but it didn't do a thing for me, but many have had good results. You never know unless you try it.
When my husband died suddenly, my new doctor was insisting that I take Zoloft for depression. I told her I knew I was depressed but I had a reason to be depressed and that isn't my normal state of mind. I told her I would work it out without medication...and I did. But, she didn't let me leave the office without a month supply of Zoloft. It went in the garbage and I never went back to her again. You know yourself better than anyone.
I really hate it when doctors question you like you are crazy or something! You shouldn't be "interrogated" by anyone. Next time, write out your list of symptoms so you don't have to continue to repeat them. The doctor can put it in your file so when you go the next time, you can refer him to your list. You can say that nothing has changed or, if you have a new symptom, have him add it to the original list. I know my doctor goes over how I feel and what medications and supplements I take every time I see him. Also, print out information about fibro and take that with you, too, to prove you aren't making up these symptoms. Always write a list of questions for your doctor, too. I can never remember what I want to ask him so I now write out a list and he doesn't leave until he has answered my questions. After all, that's what I'm paying him for.
I hope the medication your doctor calls in helps you. It looks like the facial pain is definitely caused by stress among other things. You were feeling better the day before but, after your doctor visit, it's back again. Try to do deep breathing exercises and relax a little. Try to focus on something else. I know it's hard, but you can learn to do this. I hope you feel better soon.
