Question about headaches

Posted , 4 users are following.

So I know headache is one of the more common symptoms of anxiety, but I just wanted to ask do any of you experience headaches and if so, do they get worse with physical activity/lifting things/bending over etc? Mine do get worse when I am doing any of these things, plus when I sneeze or cough. Just going up the stairs can trigger a pretty bad headache in me. The reason I'm worrying is because (FROM WHAT I KNOW) tension headache (associated with anxiety) is not supposed to get worse with physical activity, bending over, etc. And so I'm worrying it's not cause by my anxiety. I guess I just need some reassurance.

      Hey, same here. I know this is most likely caused by anxiety but I've read way too many things about types of headaches and what is typical for them and what not.. Especially when the pain is severe as it often is I have trouble believing this is from anxiety. But thanks.

      Hey, thanks for the reply. I'm also having headaches for quite a few months, it sucks doesn't it lol? When the pain is bad I do feel dizzy and woozy, but I never thought of migraines because I'm never nauseous or stuff. And the pain isn't throbbing but constant deep dull sometimes pressuring ache. But it could be migraine, who knows..xx

    If your head hurts when bending it could be your sinuses.

    Have you had them checked recently?

      I know, that's why I'm worried about my sinuses. I don't see why I would all of a sudden have problems with my sinuses, I haven't got a cold or flu or anything lately and I never had any problems, so I can only think of the worst possible options, like fungus poisoning. Lol, my health anxiety is bad. I haven't had them checked yet. But I only have a headache, no nasal discharge or congestion or face fullness, so idk rolleyes
