Health question
How much do you think your emotional health plays a part on your physical problems and vice versa?

I know there's been a direct link with stress and health problems, is the same true with declining mental/emotional health and phyiscal health?

I've noticed a dramatic decline in my mental health as my physical health has declined over the past 2 years.

I wasn't sure if it was just me or not.  I notice the worse pain I'm in the worse I feel emotionally and pain meds don't help much with pain so I feel worse.

Is there something I can research or some terms so I can read about why this happens?

Goggle "mind and body connection."  There are PLENTY of books and articles you can find in a bookstore just about anywhere.
