    I just feel like I am beating my head against a brick wall ..what with psychologists and doctors and living with constant muscle pain ?..I have to let this out now, for years I've suffered from severe muscle spasms which take me down for days, research led me down the path of looking at fibromalgia ... so obviously I tried to discuss this with doctor 2 years ago to be dismissed with the words.. Talk to The Mental Health Team ! So basically I have been talking to them for over 20 years as I have an emotionally unstable personality disorder... I have come to the end of my tether with it all. Tbh the psychologist is so nice and every Monday he rings and I rant and rant ..mainly about the same thing... but im fed up of going down the so called CBT therapy. The more stress the more pain ? the more pain the worse my depression ? 
    Anyway thanks for letting me sound of here x

    I'm sorry to hear about the depression and pain you've been experiencing @Jaclyn04. I'm glad to hear that you have a psychologist you can talk to, however. Have you mentioned to them that you might like to try a different kind of therapy, asides from CBT? 

    It's also unfortunate that you were dismissed by the doctor over your muscle spasms. Have you tried going back to see a different doctor to explain the symptoms you've been experiencing, and how much this affects you?

    I can see why that would put you off speaking to another doctor, but it could be worth doing if you feel up to it @Jaclyn04. You could also ask to be referred to a specialist, such as a rheumatologist or neurologist.
