Re: Can anxiety really cause this much pain? Help
Anxiety can definitely cause severe pain over time. Have you tried using a nightguard for the TMJ? I think that if you can get restful sleep perhaps your overall pain level will go down and you may feel less dizzy, etc. Try taking a multi-vitamin. Ask your doctor for some basic bloodwork and to check your blood pressure, sometimes anxiety, tiredness, dizzyness, headaches, etc. can be symptoms of certain health conditions that are easily treatable. Get a vitamin B12 level, CBC, electrolytes, CRP, ESR, creatinine, rheumatoid factor and ANA to start with - especially because you complain of morning stiffness.
