Hi everyone, I was wondering whether anyone has experience of anxiety and chronic pain. I have been 'injured' for over a year now, initially thinking it was PF and then tendinitis. After as much medial intervention and exploration as you can imagine, nothing has been found. The pain has now moved into my entire leg and lower back. I have done a little research and there seems to be quite a bit of research to say that there is a link between anxiety and chronic pain. I have suffered with anxiety on and off over the years, but have always thought I'd managed to contain it but now I'm beginning to wonder whether it is manifesting itself in a different way as I have chosen to ignore the other symptoms. Obviously, not being able to run and not knowing why is adding to this anxiety. I'm noticing that in times of stress, the pain is worse. In fact as I'm sitting here worrying about it, my legs are starting to hurt, even though I've not used them today. After a night's sleep or if I have had a a drink, the pain goes. I don't know if I'm clutching at straws but it is bizarre that there has been no injury detected but I am still in such pain.
Any thoughts on this would be really appreciated.
