    Well we can only support you with the diagnosis you've been given, and if the doctors have said it's muscular then we can't really suggest anything different, so maybe you're better revisiting the doctor about your fears.

    I just worry that it seems to be progressing. It started as mostly just pain in the morning but now if I sit still for even 10 minutes I'm stiff when I stand back up and start moving. I feel like I've had a constant level of anxiety about it, not like that's been worsening too.

    That defines anxiety. Especially health anxiety. Your doctors know what they're talking about. You've gotten the same opinion from two doctors. If either of them were concerned it was more than muscular, they would have send you for further testing. You'll only get past it by dealing with the anxiety. Otherwise when you've managed this fear the anxiety will move on to something new to fear about the future.

    But your anxiety and your brain is still focusing on the pain! You're stressing out, you'r telling your brain, I'm doing everything possible and I'm still in pain. Have you tried CBT therapy? Talking to a therapist will help.

    I haven't started therapy yet. Although I want to, I wouldn't have time with school starting back up in a few weeks. I'm sure it would help though. I'm just trying to convince myself that my anxiety can cause this pain to keep getting worse like it is.
