Pain/Anxiety/Trusting Yourself

Posted by Rigby on April 6, 2005, at 16:48:25

I would be so curious to get other people's opinions on this.

I took a spill running maybe two months ago. I had to get a tooth repaired--not a huge deal *but* it triggered me. I was super, super anxious. I was also increasingly sensitive physically with this tooth and in pain but kept attributing this to my psychological triggering.

This was going on for **weeks** up until last Friday when the pain was pounding so bad I had to go to the dentist for an emergency root canal.

Now I'm just concerned that I can't tell what's anxiety and what's real physical pain *except* at maybe the more extreme levels. This, of course, makes me anxious and feeling like I can't trust myself to gauge the difference.

Does anyone have any experience with this? It's like am I hypochondriac? Or the oppposite: do I write everything off to anxiety and am I not in proper contact with my body?

*Any* insight would be really appreciated.
