Terrible headache and anxiety high! 😞

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi everyone. I'm having a terrible headache that's causing my anxiety to up the roof. I honestly feel like my head wants to pop and I'm trying not to lose it. I'm looking for calm and relaxing music on YouTube. Any advice to calm my headaches and stop my anxiety from making me lose it! Thanks!

    Rub peppermint essential oil on your temples and the back of your neck. Hot bubble bath!! Some ibuprofen!!

    Anxiety headaches are horrible. Tension headaches that feels like your head is in a clamp. I get them from to much muscle tension in my neck / shoulders. You tend to tense up a lot when anxious.

    I got a bit worried about how much pain killers I was taking so stopped sadly (to many can also cause rebound headaches) - though to be fair they hardly touched it.

    I found that muscle rub (deep heat or deep freeze) actually helped more and eased the headaches loads. Either that or 4head which you can just roll on. Both cheap options and could be worth a try?

    Hope it eases soon.
