When dealing with anxiety, it’s important to take control of it before it takes control of you. This is especially important when dealing with a chronic illness like rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
The stress of dealing with RA often leads to sufferers developing anxiety. Sometimes, though, the anxiety was always there. Regardless, it causes a lot of damage.
Anxiety over having a flare-up often causes a flare-up, which then increases anxiety over having another. This cycle must be stopped before it starts in order to ensure your health and wellbeing.
Your treatment for anxiety will be multi-faceted, but it’s important to also work on it yourself. Simple methods you can do at home to reduce your anxiety will make a big difference in your recovery, and ultimately your overall health.
