1. Failed treatments and different explanations:
If pain persists you will most likely try several different medical professionals. Every time you hoped it would work out, but it didn’t. Every time a treatment or an approach doesn’t work out you get more worried, what’s going on? “This should be better by now”, “my neighbour had the same thing and she is fine now”, “what’s wrong with me why am I different?” You will also hear a different opinion from most people you see. As you hear more and more things that are potentially wrong with you, you can feel more fragile, more broken and even more confused. This can increase fear and anxiety.
