Does Anyone Get Anxiety Triggered From The Pain?

Does Anyone Get Anxiety Triggered From The Pain?

I've been in a bad flare since May and daily hard to manage pain that has triggered bad anxiety. Does anyone experience this from the pain and how do you deal with it?

Anxiety can also trigger pain. It’s a viscous cycle. There are various treatment modalities for anxiety that may lesson ur pain. Your PCP should be able to help you. Best wishes

I have noticed an increase in my anxiety and it leads to more pain. But I have trouble understanding if I cannot get out of bed in the morning because I am fatigued from RA or if I cannot get out of bed because I am depressed

I have bad anxiety also- very hard to cope. I take my dogs for a country ride and listen to the radio

I have bad anxiety and it is worse thru a flare because I don’t know if I will come out of it. I take a prescription for anxiety
