Anyone dealing with pschosomatic fallout from depression? How have you got on? Any advice?
I like to think that I've sorted my underlying depression (primarily through being kinder to myself, CBT and early retirement) but have a series of minor-but-debilitating health issues where essentially the medics can find no obvious physical cause. Unfortunately, the pain, discomfort and their lengthening illness from a bug depresses me.
I'm left with tiredness and lethargy (I'm investigating low Vitamin B12 and a less-than-ideal thyroid), neuropathic pain at the sight of a nose operation 20 years ago, tooth pain with no cause found, a chronic cough (this may be from post-nasal drip) that has been particularly bad over the last few months, feelings of suffocating and a tight chest with peak flow lung capacity less than 2/3 of the expected figure, restless legs (horrible, horrible, horrible)ove. One or 2 of them I could cope with, but I now just feel overwhelmed.
