    I think that emotions and the body are linked. My legs feel really heavy almost like i can't move them at all when i think (or try to think) about issues that are difficult for me or repressed during my therapy session.
    Psychosomatic disorders are the physical manifestation of thought and emotions, usually in an extreme way. CFS was once thought to be psychosomatic although thankfully not many people still believe this.
    However i do think that emotional difficulties if not processed can affect some people in a physical way and if you already have pain or other physical difficulties then it may be more noticable than in someone who is in perfect health.
    Hope this makes sense

    We all know stress causes flares with fibro, and of course emotional uphevals of the sort you mention certainly are stressful.

    Hope you can feel better soon.
