Take care.- Hope it helps.-

Aaron, It won't let me respond on your other post unless I comment. You are 18 years old and in alot of pain, pain causes depression and more pain. It is entirely possible your medical condition is amplifying this situation. Have you tried any of the antidepressants like amitriptyline that help with depression and pain. It is very cheap and the only side effect I ever had was thirstiness, that is a small side effect. Please let us know how you are. Patti
