I have terrible back pains myself when I'm really anxious or after I've had a panic attack the day before..
Typically for me, and such may be true for you... but when you're in panic mode your muscles are so tensed up and they have no room to stretch. I am starting to stretch now... and it seems to be helping... but I have a lot of weird pains too... like in my side... one day the pain was so bad in my side I couldn't even sit.. I had to stand and was pretty much keeled over in pain.
It was awful.
I'm glad to hear your starting Remeron, I hope that it works.
Also, none of the pain meds work on me for back pain either. I mean nothing. And when I get a back massage it seems to make the pain only worse... which is weird.
Maybe you could try Yoga or stretching exercises in the morning so your muscles aren't strained when the anxiety does hit.
The anxiety and health phobia could be making your back worse, but it could also be a number of different things.
I take Lorazepam.. and when I take it and I'm having chest pains.. the pains usually go away as well..
Perhaps you could try a different clinic maybe for a second opinion?
