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?

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

A bad flare since May sounds like more than a flare! Did your Rheum. get you a prednisone pal to interrupt the flare? Hope you get help soon. Hugs.
