Common Coping Strategies to deal with pain related anxiety:
Take a time out - when you feel overwhelmed take a time out and just relax even for 2-3 minutes or count to 10 slowly.
Limit your intake of alcohol and caffeine
Do your best to eat healthy. Eat small portions and don't skip meals.
Get Sleep - your body tends to rejuvenate itself while we sleep. If possible try to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night.
Set realistic goals. Realize your limitations.
Do your best to be positive and try to be optimistic.
Communicate - talk to your friends, family members, or attend a support group.
