There is significant overlap in nonspecific signs of medical conditions, pain, and anxiety disorders.

Lip licking, lip smacking, panting, pacing, trembling, aggression, agitation, hiding, withdrawal, and vocalizing can be seen in patients that are anxious, sick, or in pain.

Sudden appearance of new behaviors (pica; aggression; anxious behaviors), especially in middle-aged or older animals, points to an underlying medical condition.

Neuropathic pain is often worsened by stimuli that evoke a sympathetic response, such as the startle response and emotional arousal (stressful situations).

Obtaining an accurate and complete history to collect all subtle signs and behavioral changes will help the veterinarian establish if the signs are more compatible with a medical condition, a behavioral disorder, or both.
