Hi all! Has anyone experienced, muscle/joint pain since starting sertaline.

In the last 3 weeks i have started getting stiff painful muscle pain in the muscles and elbow joint of my right arm, bit like Ive torn a muscle or pulled a muscle, stiff and sore. but Ive done neither, it hurts to even pick up a cup of tea. haven't damaged it in anyway, or been sleeping on it or anything, but it doesn't seem to be getting any better. just wondering if it could be due to the sertaline.

    I’m sure it’s from the sertraline, I still get them sometime after almost 8 weeks, had them in my arm, shoulder, legs and my abs! It’s all part of the ride I’m afraid!

      By the way mine is more like a soreness not really a pain.

      Thanks so much. I thought i was going mad! I was sure it was the sertaline, had it for weeks now, i noticed its not to bad in morning before i take my sertaline, but becomes more stiff and painful as day goes on. runs right down my forearm muscle, like a sprain type pain.

      Anyways thanks. do you know if this will pass?

      I don’t know if it will pass, I know mine has improved but has not totally gone away, all I can do is hope and pray! Good luck brother.
