"The pain is stealthy. It slowly morphs into depression and the depression is a danger in itself." Rosemary at Seeking Equilibrium.
When you have depression, it interferes with daily life and causes mental pain for you and those who care about you. The same can be said of fibromyalgia.
WHY FIBROMYALGIA & DEPRESSION OFTEN OCCUR TOGETHER:
- Fibromyalgia (FM) may contribute biologically to depression.
- FM sufferers may become depressed as a reaction to the diagnosis, the pain and/or incapacity caused by the FM or its treatment.
- Depression and FM may be unrelated, even though occurring together.
