My mom (42 yr ) is diagnosed with schizophrenia. It has been 3 years now. She has stopped taking her anti psychotic medications a year ago, complaining that it makes her dizzy and sleepy all the time. Since then, she is normal most of the times and once a week, she have psychotic episodes (hallucination that our neighbour is trying to kill her by kidnapping her soul and what not ).
Lately, she keeps complaining that she have pain in her hip joint and chest area while walking (like some weight is pulling her down by force ) . She is unable to walk properly. She takes support of walls to walk inside the house. However doctor did x-ray and checked her and told that there is no physical evidence of any pain. Everything is normal.
Is this pain because she has stopped her anti psychotic medicine? Can schizophrenic mind cause body to feel physical pain when in reality there is no physical injury?
