Pyschosomatic. That’s what Dr. K the orthopedist told me yesterday. Apparently he did talk to Dr. P. And now I guess I’m just crazy and it’s all in my head. Or not.
I suppose how it depends on how you define psychosomatic. If it’s physical symptoms caused by psychological processes, I’d say jump off a roof. If it’s physical problems exacerbated by psychological stressors I’d say you’re right on the money.
My pain levels have dropped since Dr. P upped the anxiety medication. But, you have to remember, I’ve also started the trigger point injections and PT. I’ve gone from an 8 to a 5 in terms of pain. Not fun, but much more bearable. I also thing the Risperidone had something to do with it. It was interfering with my sleep and I think it was making me more anxious. It’s like a vicious circle.
