Fibromyalgia, Depression and Suicide

How does fibromyalgia, depression and suicide relate to one another? Is there a connection? Many with fibromyalgia have fought not to be labeled as “depressed.” This leads many to refuse antidepressants, not wanting to be placed in that category. Because if that happens, the doctor refuses to explore any other possibility. Does that sound like the thoughts and feeling that you may have had before being diagnosed with fibromyalgia?

  1. It’s horribly painful–even the force of air from a hair blower is ainful. My belief is mine came from over dose of statin drugs which has left me otherwise crippled, unable to walk.
