Hi all, new to this forum, but have been lurking a bit.
I was injured at work in Feb of 2011. It was to my neck, left shoulder and arm. Because of insurance issues and fighting workmans comp. my only therapy was pain meds. I went from Vicoden to Oxycodone, and have been taking it 3 times a day, every day since.
The pain meds helped for about 5 months and then I noticed that I had body pain all over. When I walked, slept, moved around. I didnt have to be moving at all and my muscles would ache. Because of being in pain, being out of work and feeling stuck, my depression got the best of me.
My question is: Has anyone ever experienced body pain due to depression? Before my work injury, I worked out, was in great shape. What on earth could have happened?
My insurance finally changed on Feb 1 of this year and I am now going to be able to see the dr of my choice. Hopefully now I will be able to get some help.
Thanks in advance
