How to Ease Your Anxiety Right Now


Tips for Easing Anxiety

Many people who suffer with chronic pain experience anxiety. It could be a pre-existing condition but in many cases is due to the stress of their chronic pain.

It can become a vicious cycle as the fear of symptom relapse causes anxiety which can then trigger a symptom relapse and cause pain, which then produces more fear of pain and future attacks.

Anxiety can appear in many forms and affects each sufferer differently: generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias, agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

When dealing with any of these disorders in conjunction with chronic pain, it’s important to learn how to manage and control your anxiety so it doesn’t overwhelm you.

There are many simple methods that you can do at home to stop anxiety before it becomes a full-blown attack. The key is to remember to relax, breath, and stop those racing thoughts.
