I am 59 year old male. Heart attack in March, depression

Customer Question

I am 59 year old male. Heart attack in March, depression sense. Over the last two months I have developed an extreme sensitive to touch, sound, light and EMFs, electricity. If I even touch my computer mouse for 5 seconds, I get intense pain. I cannot go in car due to emfs. Blood pressure skyrocketes, pain all over body. My dentist thinks maybe bacteria in root canals teeth, two incisors, ma be leaking bacteria, but a guess. I read low serotonin can cause this syndrome, I also read high serotonin can cause this. Im an invalid in constant pain. They will have to sedate me to get teeth florescent lights are the worst. Being outside in sun causes extreme pain all over body, so just not emfs. Maybe bacteria react to all this, or it is serotonin imbalance
I take beta blocker as needed and daily aspirin. No pain meds. What is going on?

I am sorry you are having these issues with pain

could be due to serotonin imbalance

severe depression can cause body aches and pains.

you should talk to your doctor about SSRI agents which could potentially help your depression and pain symptoms

medications like cymbalta or effexor or paxil or sertraline could help your symptoms
