Major anxiety, worried about husbands headache

Edited , 2 users are following.

a few years ago my husband started suffering with headaches around spring time , but he got his eyes tested, got glasses and they got better but he still suffered with the occasional headache

the last few weeks he has been getting headaches again he usually goes to the gym 3 or 4 times a week but hasn't been able to because of lock down

our little boy has been waking up a lot during the night as well so we are having very disturbed sleep and my husband usually get up as 5am for work

we are also having a stressful time due to moving and it taking ages

he has an eye test booked for this week incase he needs new glasses

his whole dads side of the family wear glasses all the time so it might be that

he also spends a lot of time with his head bent down looking at his phone

I suffer with severe health anxiety and I'm terrified f a brain tumor or something, am I being dramatic? or could all the above factors be contributing to these headaches

    You guys have a lot of life going on. I think that is the culprit of the headaches. Also, does he have allergy issues? There are different pollens and molds that are out in the spring versus the fall. I have 1 kid that has bad spring allergies and gets the headaches, even with blurred vision at times. And 2 other kids that have bad fall allergies, ragweed to be exact. One kid gets headaches and a full face type of feeling, sinuses. The other gets the very drippy nose and headaches. Everyone's reaction to different pollens and molds can be different. So that is a possibility too.

    One more thought to add to that, I haven't always had allergy and sinus issues. Out of the blue about 8 years ago I started having issues with them. So even if he's never had those types of issues, it's possible that it's developed. I hope you both feel better soon.
