Hi Tara, I'm afraid I was a little depressed, feeling sorry for myself & not being able to do things, but also because no one could tell me what is wrong with me for sure. I was also very worried because I was getting worse fast! But the doctor told me that the antidepressants work on how your brain perceives pain. That seems to be working because I feel a little numb all over my body. He choose Paxil because I told him I have been trying to loose weight for 4 years and couldn't loose anything because the pain was too bad to even think about exercising. The Paxil has taken away my appetite and with the pain gone I can exercise more consistently. He said if I was too thin he could prescribe an antidepressant that would increase my appetite. My entire lower abdomen is still sensitive to the touch, and I can't lift anything but I am much better.
