Abstract The relationship between anxiety and chronic pain has been poorly studied. The authors studied the occurrence of symptoms of anxiety in chronic low back pain patients. Anxious mood and other symptoms of anxiety were commonly seen in patients with chronic low back pain. Symptoms of anxiety were more common in patients with depression, especially those with major depression. Anxious mood, tension and general somatic symptoms of the sensory type were more common than any other type of anxiety symptoms. The authors discuss the potential role of anxiety in chronic pain patients.
