Anxiety and Stress causing back and neck issues?

Hello all.

I had a neck injury 3months ago and then went to a chiro that told me I had a bone out of place. been to tons of doctors and not getting better. I have been told that i had spasms and fibromyalgia etc. But I have been really really slow to recover.

Today I went to a doc a friend recommended and told me that I had stress/anxiety/depression. So gave me Valium and Cymbalta. pretty agressive for about a month and told me that would get me better.

What do youthink? can stress and anxiety cause that much of a n effect?
