Depression & Anxiety
Our stress and anxiety levels have reached unprecedented heights—and it’s little wonder given that the backdrop to our everyday stressors is a scene of international turmoil, humanitarian crises, a never-ending pandemic, and economic upheaval. Your body’s physiological and psychological responses to stress can be a double-edged sword. When you experience stress—whether it’s caused by missing a flight or reading an upsetting news story—it triggers the release of hormones that make your heart pound, blood pressure rise, muscles tense, breathing quicken, and digestion to slow. Your acute stress response, commonly known as “fight or flight,” is vital in preparing your body to quickly react to physical danger. Once the threat of danger disappears, your body is meant to return to a normal, relaxed state. However, if your automatic stress system is activated too often, your body suffers. Chronic stress has been shown to contribute to headaches, neck and back pain, stomach and digestive issues, a weakened immune system, high blood pressure, and weight fluctuations. Stress also can cause changes in the brain—impacting irritability, ability to focus, anger, sleeplessness, depression, and anxiety.
At times, you may experience pain and depression that feel so intertwined it seems impossible to separate one from the other—with pain worsening your depression symptoms, and the resulting depression worsening your sensations of pain. In fact, your feelings of pain and depression share some of the same nerve pathways in the brain. The brain pathways that receive your pain signals also use some of the same neurotransmitters involved in your mood and emotion regulation. When this regulation is disrupted, not only is your pain intensified, but your feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and anxiety are too.
