A month ago I had an Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion on my C6/C7. Everything went well and other than some tendinitis I am doing well. But after dealing with this pain for 2 years I feel like I am developing some anxiety. Is that common, has anyone else delt with this? I don't have a ton of stress, I'm not really stressed about anything it really has just come out of the blue the last week or so. I am on Valium for muscle spasms but still having panic attacks and just general anxiety, I think thats what it is at least. I may make an appointment with my GP to see if I'm nuts or if this has anything to do with my years of chronic pain or some other underlying issue. I got worried last week when the panic attacks came out of no where for no reason while on Valium. Any ideas? Any one else experience this?
