    I think everyone with anxiety would recognise this as anxiety, some more than other but yes they are all common anxiety symptoms

    Unfortunately this is anxiety. Or tension headache/migrane caused by anxiety and stress. 

    Try to sort it out before it gets out of control. I changed my lifestyle a bit straight after my recent (first panic attack) : next morning started my day with a short jog and my favourite music ( brisk walk + fresh air would do), after I had a healthy breakfast with 5 grain porridge ( with lots of jam to relieve all my sugar cravings) and a cup of herbal tea. And you know what? My day got better. I felt like I am gaining control of my life and my body. Oh. And medications: to relieve headaches, to relax muscles (tension) and some herbal mix capsules for stress relief. So far I am functioning well 3 days. smile

    Bearing in mind medication is only ever a short term help, while the root cause is dealt with.  Root causes are different from everyone, sometimes its lifestyle, sometimes its emotional, sometimes its physical.  As you are dealing with a psychologist already, take treatment advice from them, therapy is a better option for many - pills arent a cure all, and cant cure anxiety - they are only there to help if you want them, you dont have to take them if youd rather not
