Hello everyone. I have several autoimmune diseases have been diagnosed and I diagnosed but not ruled out as having SLE. I am also being investigated for epilepsy and have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Besides being "normally" depressed as anyone would with a chronic illness, I have as of tonight been severely depressed to the point of wanting to drive myself to the nearest asylum and check myself in. This bout of severe severe depression started earlier tonight with a nauseating migraine and arthritic pain so bad I can't get out of bed. I am currently on about 14 medications treating all of my illnesses, cymbalta being one mainly to help with pain. Do any of you out there with fibro have severe bouts of "clinical depression"? Is this normal for fibro? I am just beside myself and have no idea what to make of this. Any input would help. Thanks!!
