Sometimes anxiety: Is associated with pain. I perform medical acupuncture. I often do a technique to reduce anxiety and the person finds that even though i did not specifically treat their pain - that it has resolved.

Anxiety & hormones: Hormonal imbalance, especially in women, especially near menopause where levels of Progesterone drop. Progesterone is similar to serotonin & has a calming effect. This can be compounded by elevated levels of oestrogen, or use of birth control pill.

Duh!!!: You don't need to know because it will not help you care for yourself. Only if you are writing a research paper. For chronic pain begin a self-care with a wellness program of vits, magnesium glycinate, sleep hygiene, exercise, self massage, chiropractor, yoga, heat, epsom tub soaking, stretching all are needed. In my practice I use acupuncture and myofascial tissue release.
