Pain causing Depression
beautifulbuffalo posted:
I am having severe pain in many extremeties causeing me to be depressed. I have been suffereing from depression for many many years but it gets worse due to the pain.

The pain in my back is terrible as it goes down my leg. I also have had 2 surgeries on my back already.

I also have pain in my knees. My left one I have had 3 surgeries and was told the only thing they can do now is a knee replacement. But my right knee is bothering me now as it is popping bringing me almost to the ground.

I have my neck which I have had surgery in 3 years ago bothering me.

The new pain is in my left arm from my hand to my elbow with weakness.

I'm 49 on Disability and someone tell me why I shouldn't be depressed.
