Seit nunmehr zehn Jahren leide ich an degenerative HWS, LWS, Knie bds. und Karpaltunnel Syndrom. Kann kaum noch gehen, kann nicht schlafen. Auch die Opiate und Antidepressiva helfen nicht mehr. Ich bin oft an den Punkt angekommen aufzugeben. Melde mich bestimmt wieder, gute Nacht.

I'm sorry I can't speak or read non-English languages. I did pick up on carpal tunnel syndrome and something about antidepressants maybe. Hopefully someone will be able to help you. πŸ™‚πŸ’žβ€πŸ™πŸŒ·

Unfortunately I can not speak English, but with google you get that very well.
Depressive phases have only gradually become apparent to me. Did not even notice that. My pain therapist told me, as he went through the questionnaire, because I fill out every quarter of a year with me. Not surprisingly, the pain I have every day. The reviewers fiddled with fibromyalgia as a somatoform pain disorder, as if I were taking a simmolation because the doctors have no idea where the pain is coming from.
I've been taking opiates for the pain for over a year now. But I always have the feeling that they are not working at all. The pain is still there, not so much, but he is there.
I still hope for a miracle.

Sik66, I think all of us are battling depression to some degree. Mine has been on & off since my first post-partum attack in 1988. But it came on strong after my health started going downhill following major surgery that left me disabled in 2010. Every time I get a new problem to deal with my depression climbs a notch up the ladder for days to weeks. In 2013 they found out I have a genetic defect of metabolizing (breaking down & absorbing) various meds & vitamins; pain meds, benzodiazapines, antidepressants & folate. I now take Deplin, a more natural form of folate for the MTHFR Gene defect, and it's helping keep my depression more controlled.

I'm afraid depression is just another permanent part of dealing with chronic pain. Previously fibromyalgia flares were my worst. But this year my Sjogrens has started attacking my joints & soft tissues (connective tissue disease), and those flares are worse than my fibro. I take it a day at a time, and I purposely move slower now because trying to move too fast is how I keep reinjuring myself. Sending hugs love & prayers you can get better help with the depression & chronic pain! πŸ™‚β€πŸ™πŸŒΌ
