    Hi Mary,

    Headache is a very common symptom and there are many reasons for it. Try to find out the cause behind it. Meet your GP and get it diagnosed. And don’t be so negative about health anxiety. Every individual is anxious about his/her own health, so nothing wrong in that. The problem starts when you are not convinced about the fact. So meet your GP, do the investigation and get assured.
