    Oh yes, most certainly. Stress and anxiety can most definitley cause headaches and migraines - it is normal to have this symptom. 

    You have nothing to fear. I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression at age 11 and at around the same time, I started to get migraines and headaches often. I now take a daily preventative headache medication (called Topamax, it works great!) and an as-needed migraine medication called Maxalt for my worst migraines. I suggest you look into them if you are interested in taking prescription medicines for them. 

    Getting your vitamins is also important! Be sure to drink water daily as well.

    Take care!
