Hello Doctor, My name is Thomson, I am 36 years of

Patient : Hello Doctor, My name is Thomson, I am 36 years of old. I am suffering from psychological problem since childhood due to family stress. I have depressed since child hood but didnt come to know as I was very small. When I was 15 years old chronic & severe occipital burning & pain sensation stared & also body pain. From that time I started to visit various doctors but I never told them that I am severely depressed also. Occipital Pain & burning sensation was so severe that couldnt let me to think over my other problems. Brain was totally malfunctioning. 13/14 years doctors were trying to treat my physical symptoms without any luck. 13/14 years past & 1 good doctor advised me to see psychiatrist. I was living in village that time so didnt know about inetrnet or any other medium to find any information about disease. My thinking was psychiatrist is for mental person, I am not mental & all the problems I have are real & how can all can say these are psycological problem. My mind was not accepting that. how ever I came to mumbai & visited psychiatrist, he prescribed antidepressant for me. I took sertaline (antidepressant) at night. next day morning I wake up with all my problems at 9 o clock for 5 MINUTES i felt HAPPY in my whole life. Happy feeling gone after 5 minutes & never came aging in my life till date. That are the only 5 minutes of happiness in my whole life. Treatment goes on by changing one by one antidepressant but it were not able to change my mood & occipital pain & burning sensation. I visited so many psychiatrist but all in vain. Finally I doctor prescribed me antipsychotic (olanzapine) which is used for schizophrenia, only one tablet stopped my 15 years occipital pain & burning sensation. I am taking it since 5 years now I dont have occipital headache & burning sensation complaint any mere but I have to take it for my life. Duvanta (SNRI Antidepressant) stopped my chronic & sever body pain. so these 2 problem are in very much control now. the only problem that is very badly bothering me is chronically & severe bad mood(Depression), since 19 years or more have past but I have no relief in this. I struggle very badly in my every day life. simple task also have become very hard for me due to this. All type of allopathic antidepressant I have tried with no luck. Almost all type of homeopathic medicine I have also tried but no relief. I dont know why all these medications make my depression worse so I could not able to take them for even for few days. those are not making my depression worse I have tried them for years but these are not able to relieve my depression. My observation is that the medicines that raised dopamine does not work s for me because I am high in dopamine & to lower that I am taking anti-psychotic medicine. My depression symptoms are as per below:- Chronically low mood Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness Loss of interest in daily activities extreme irritability Loss of energy Concentration problems, Unexplained aches and pains Lethargy excessive sleep remembering problem Persistent aches or pains, headaches, cramps
