Hi DeeG -
Sounds like vagus nerve stuff to me. An irritated vagus nerve causes a variety of ES symptoms & among them are heightened anxiety levels. Others include heart palpitations/blood pressure issues, gastrointestinal issues, vocal/throat issues, to name a few of the more prominent ones. I suspect that once your styloid(s) is/are gone, you’ll notice a positive change in the anxiety situation. Another option is - pain is adding to your anxiety. Prolonged pain is known to create anxiety. If you wake up in pain then have to anticipate harassment at work, I can imagine your anxiety could skyrocket before you even start your day.
I am very sorry you’re going through what you are at work. Is there anyone you can talk to about the guy & get some sort of protection from him? Seems like they should care enough to support you in this.
Glad your ES forum app is working again on your phone. I’ve had that happen on my computer in the past, but all has been well for awhile.
Please keep us posted about your situation. I will be praying for you.
