Anxiety is that you feel fearful and tense. You may also have some physical symptoms, such as, increased heart beat, feeling sick, shaking, short of breath, chest pain, headache etc. Most people feel anxious from time to time. It is normal in stressful situation. However if anxiety persists or there is no obvious reason to be anxious, it becomes abnormal.
Stress and pain are two distinguished but overlapping processes presenting multiple conceptual and physiological overlaps. Chronic pain might not only be caused by physical injuries, inflammation, or nerve disorders but also by stress emotionally or physically. Chronic pain is often accompanied by depression and anxiety. Long term stress can result in depression, anxiety, chronic pain and other mental and physical problems.
