Treatment for stress or depression - Hepatitis C for Patients
If you are depressed or anxious, coping with chronic or intermittent pain is very difficult. What's more, chronic pain often makes people feel more depressed. Treating depression can improve the pain, because pain often feels less difficult to tolerate and easier to relieve when depression is under control. By working to reduce symptoms of depression, you can make a big impact on your pain.
