Psychiatrist 's  Response

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I think the pain in back, chest, underarms, and discomfort are all due to back problems in your spine. However you also have lupus, emphysema, osteoporosis and angina that complicate the picture. However, I would advise you to consult a neuropsychiatrist who is well versed with treating multiple pain disorder. I wonder if you could consult one to find the right medications for you.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
