There’s an odd correlation for me between physical pain and mental or emotional pain. It seems like enough of one always results in the other cropping up too. I’ve had a nasty headache for a month now, without a single day of respite, and it’s stressing me out and making me depressed. Conversely, when I’m very stressed or very depressed, it nearly always leads to a flare-up of my fibromyalgia.
I’m not sure if this is reassuring — connectivity between mind and body is a big part of my martial arts and my spiritual studies, after all — or frustrating.
Maybe both.
Likewise, I have an MRI scan scheduled for Wednesday to see if they can find a cause for the pain (which doesnt respond to anything short of Vicodin). I’m not sure if I should be nervous or not – after all, things that show up on an MRI are usually not things you are happy to have, and if nothing shows up at all, we’ll be practically back at square one. On the other hand, if nothing shows up on the MRI, at least we’ll know what it’s not. Plus, I’ve never had an MRI before, so it’s kind of exciting.
