The Vicious Cycles of DGBI
How many vicious cycles are there with DGBI? Well, we are going to talk about two. The one where you go to the doctor, get tests, get told nothing is wrong. Rinse, repeat. And the one where you are in chronic pain, you get depressed and anxious, you do something that changes the chronic pain, you get happy. Pain comes back and so does the depression and anxiety. Rinse, repeat again. There are ways to extend and even break the cycle.
