Pain stresses the body. As such, pain, especially chronic pain, can stress the body sufficiently to cause mild degrees of hyperstimulation and aggravate existing hyperstimulation.
If you are experiencing anxiety disorder or hyperstimulation and its symptoms, having to deal with pain, especially chronic pain, can aggravate anxiety, hyperstimulation and their symptoms.
Addressing the pain can reduce stress and its impact on anxiety, hyperstimulation, and their symptoms.
Moreover, pain can also disrupt relaxation and sleep. This disruption can also stress the body due to the increase in stress hormones caused by a reduction in rest and sleep.
In some cases, pain relievers can be used to reduce pain so that the stress coming from pain can also be reduced. For more information, talk with your doctor about ways to manage pain.
