Yes, chronic pain can cause depression and anxiety. I am really sorry if this has happened to you, but I know that you are brave and strong enough to get through it. I struggle with all three of these and my advice would be to talk to someone about it and remember that you are never alone. Good luck and remember there are always people that love and care about you, that are willing to help in anyone that they can.

Yes. Living with chronic pain can cause depression and anxiety because dealing with that pain every day and trying to accomplish normal things is tougher and that can cause depression/anxiety.
Of course! It is very difficult and can be quite depressing to live with chronic pain. I like to say to people to take it one day at a time, find whatever you can do to distract yourself from the pain, and find something to do that makes you feel better about yourself and your life,,, as well as continue the quest of finding healing,
