Terrible Headache

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have been suffering different symptoms everyday bacause of anxiety. Today i have this scary headache, its like my head is on fire and my face has some burning sensations. I try to take medication to calm the headache but the medication is not helping. M now worried that i am going to die and leave my doctor. Its been a week now having this terrible headache and is not stopping. Can anxiety cause such pain and how do stop panicking because of it. Your response wil be highly appreciated.

    I would go back to the ft and ask for CBT or some kind of therapy.

    Mindfulness and yoga could be helpful.

    Headaches do need to be looked in to but they can be caused by stress and panic. A simple test I do is diver the mind to a task that requires alot of brain power and see if it goes away. This is also true when I am having a panic attack.....youd be surprised how powerful it is it stopping attacks and pain.

    There is many types of different headaches I have chronic tension headaches that can last up to 7 days I was at first convinced it was a brain tumour as I'd never really suffered with headaches before. I have had burning sensations in my head & face I get weird pains in different parts of my head along with the feeling my head is bein squeezed and goin to explode. Doctors have done facial examinations with me that can spot a brain tumour and it was all normal. I know you shouldn't but google different headaches it will tell you the symptoms of each type of headache. I've noticed painkillers don't help much when I have a tension headache either
