Fibromyalgia does not get worse over time, so it does not often cause any physicalÂ complications, or lead to other conditions.Â However, it is possible for fibromyalgia to lead to depression. This is because theÂ condition can be difficult to deal with, and low levels of certain hormones, such asÂ serotonin, can make you prone to developing depression.
Depression can cause many symptoms, including constantly feeling low, a lack ofÂ interest in the things that you normally enjoy, and feeling tearful.Â If you think that you may be depressed, it is important to get help from your GP, orÂ your fibromyalgia health professional. See the ‘related articles’ and ‘selected links’Â sections for more information about depression and support groups forÂ fibromyalgia
It can also be said that hypno-psychotherapy can assist with the complications inÂ conjunction with anti-depressants, should they need to be taken. Additionally, ifÂ hypno-psychotherapy is employed before the symptomology becomes too bad,Â depression and anxiety need never manifest themselves.
