Hi, Dr. Ashori here to help you. Give me a moment to read your question and I will reply to you shortly.
There are 2 conditions I would like to point out. First, I am sorry that you are experiencing these pains, for someone active that must be really hard.
First, it is quite likely that it's withdrawal from the medicine, even 6 months isn't long enough for your nervous system to go back to normal after paroxetin.
Secondly, you may have developed fibromyalgia and the medicine was simply masking the pains and aches and now that you are off of it the FM is more present.
I would lean towards the first theory.
Have you tried going back on the medicine at a very low dose to see if the symptoms will decrease?
The good news is that your body will likely go back to normal after about 6 months. It takes sometimes 12 months to get that medicine's side effects out of your system.
You can try in creasing your omega fatty acids, that will help.
