Our expert says:
That feeling "better" after taking Stilpayne is like getting drunk --- it's due to the sedative component of the Stilpayne, not the pain-killing part of it. It is certainly possible to become dependent on such sedatives, which in SA are far too often added to pain-killers. The way you discuss feeling when you delay Stilpayne, and the response to then taking them, sounds rather like deprendency, and like an alcoholic needing a drink in the morning.
Maybe discuss this with your doc or shrink, as better treatment of your anxiety and gaining the ability to control your pain through CBT counselling, could make it easier to do well without the Stilpayne, which should be stopped gradually and not suddenly.
