I too suffer from anxiety and it has got worse in the last couple of years, also around the time my health worsened. I have possible arthritis in my hand, waiting to see consultant. I'm not in horrendous pain, but very uncomfortable. Guess our bodies react differently to pain, and anxiety is a response to this. Are you on Meds for anxiety? Beta blockers can be a great help, and won't make you feel drowsy like Valium does. All the best.
