OK Val do u get pain when u turn your head, say left and right? does it hurt in the breast bone? sometimes ppl can get Costrocondritis, its inflamation in the Meat(sorry best way to describe it) and hurts when pressed, or when u turn head left to right... its part and parcel of inflamatory arthritis...I use to get it so much, but havnt had it for say over a year....mb look at a site about costrocon, soon as u said what u said, i mb think it cld be that

good luck x

No they wont think that val....becos he will know that so many symptoms go with this disease, also we are high risk to getting Depression also, which I didnt know about either, so if u feel very low, go see GP too, he shld Understand all symptoms that happen, so dont worry ok

tkae care now
