Propranolol for anxiety.

I'm a 22 year old female from the UK. I have a fairly high demanding job working as a pharmacy dispenser.
Since I was 15 I have suffered with knee, hip and back pain caused by a skiing accident. Over the years this has affected my confidence I know, I'm always worried of being in pain. Or being out and being stuck without pain relief.
I'd say I'm a pessimist. I always manage to see the bad in things and I'm constantly asking myself 'what if?'
Over the past 5 or 6 months my sleeping patterns have been up and down. I find it hard to sleep and my mind never shuts off. My doctor recently put me on propranlol 20mg in the morning to calm me down a little.
I find myself getting extremely worked up before I have to leave the house to go to work. There's been a few times where I've literally been in tears because I'm worrying about what's going to happen during the day.
My pain affects my sleep, my mind working overtime affects my sleep and my sleep affects my concentration.
I need to be aware and concentrate within my job and sometimes I feel like I'm not capable of doing this. Which just knocks my confidence even further. This is a vicious cycle.
Anyone been on propranolol before? Or suffered with anxiety? What has helped you?
Any help is help.
Thank you!
