I've been dealing with chronic pain since I was around 14 or 15 and I'm 25 now. I have days were the pain is excruciating to the point were every day activities hurt and days were I'm decent and can function like everyone else. It seems that when my pain is at its worse my anxiety seems to be worse. Not as I worry about my health or anything but like for some reason I just seem to go off about the littlest things to others. What I mean by to others is that I actually let my anxiety known where I normally try my hardest to keep it to myself. But when I'm hurting very badly I can't seem to keep up my front. I freak out and end up flipping out on people. It's happened recently and I just don't understand it. I've been doing very well recently but now I just feel like everything has gone downhill. Maybe I'm overreacting but I don't know. Does this happen to anyone else? When you're in pain or hurting does your anxiety seem to get put of control?
