anthony: i have had these test and they can provide clues but can give false positives and false negatives and are not a gold standard type of test. you would not want to have surgery based on the results of such test without a lot more of info. depression is a very common symptom of pain and in particular long ongoing pain. talk to your doc about how to treat this if it becomes more than just a passing thing. if you do not get a bit depressed with a long bout of PF then you are the exception.
