Anxiety is quite possibly the most common condition that accompanies chronic pain. Anxiety tends to go hand in hand with chronic pain. The reason is that pain is a danger signal.

As such, pain is a warning signal that naturally leads the nervous system to respond with its corresponding alarm – the fight-or-flight response. | Learn more.
