Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum

Stress and anxiety can lead to pain symptoms (psychosomatic symptoms) which are not explained by physical illness. Hydrocodone is used for pain management and valium for anxiety for short duration only. Long term use of both of these medicine lead to addiction and dependance on them.

In your case assessment and long term management is needed, which can be done after in person evaluation by psychiatrist and supervised treatment.

Till you meet psychiatrist, following simple measures will help you:
-Healthy diet: Milk and fruits in diet.
-Daily morning walk
-Breathing exercise, yoga and meditation (which you can learn from some expert in person)

Wish you Good Health and all the best.
