  • Anxiety is always much worse when you haven't slept! I find that Nytol ( the blue pack) is a godsend when suffering insomnia! Worrying about not sleeping makes it worse - give them a try.

  • Hi Sandy , than you I will do all im trying at the mo is rescue night drops not sure at the mo if they work. It's always worse during tome of month but no sleep not much makes me feel ill . Thankyou so much

  • Hey there. Yep, have been through what you describe. Still am in fact :-( Are you having jaw pain as a result of your tooth/teeth OR are you having jaw pain as a result of grinding your teeth? Does your jaw make a clicking noise when you open your mouth wide and/or when you eat? If so, then you possibly have TMJ. I currently have this condition and it is extremely painful and takes time to heal. There's loads of info regarding TMJ on the web so check it out and see if you fit the criteria. Anxiety makes every muscle in our body tense up including our jaw.

    I'm sorry to say that yes, anxiety, particularly chronic anxiety can cause physical ailments to become much, much worse. If you can control the anxiety, then to some extent you may also be able to control pain levels. I'm not suggesting that the pain will disappear totally. It won't. I'm saying that you may be able to decrease the severity.

    Best wishes.
