If you think the answer is yes you are not on your own. A recent survey of people with arthritis asked that question, and the results show that people with arthritis are much more likely to experience both anxiety and depression, particularly if they were in pain a lot. Having arthritis can be tough and people with arthritis need support.
The results mean there are a lot of people out there who might benefit from support that helps with anxiety and depression as well as their pain. Movement and being active helps all of these things, so its another reason to Start Moving. People who were active experienced much lower rates. Does this situation sound familiar to you?
