Tension headache?

Posted , 5 users are following.

So today I've had a headache which is just a dull annoying ache. But also feel like it's making my face ache also, like my jaw and neck and cheeks a bit too. Anyone else get this?

      Thank you for your reply. It's horrible how it can make my whole face ache and especially the back of my head and Back of my neck. Paracetamol isn't doing anything for it either. Hopefully it will wear off soon.

    Hi Sarah, poor you! Yes this is classic anxiety headache! Put a few drops of lavender oil on your pillow! Also invest in a wheat pillow warm it in microwave and snuggle into bed,with painkillers! Listen to a relaxation CD! Regards Amanda
