Anxiety headaches

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety headaches


Avatar f tn My question...hormonal headaches or anxiety headaches? Around the time that the whole anxiety started, I noticed that I began sweating tremendously...which was very unlike me. I could go to the gym and work out for hours without breaking a sweat, suddenly in June I was sweating through my shirts just sitting still. I wasn't sure if this could be a perimenopause causing everything. I'm a 30 years female. Any thoughts?
994817 tn?1249741878 Does anyone ever experience REALLY bad headaches with their anxiety? I didn't use to but lately I get TERRIBLE headaches that last for days. Sometimes weeks. Its like an intense pressure all around the head but mostly in the back and sides, not so much the front of the head. Its starting to scare me, like I have a brain tumor or something. Gosh, if its not worrying about my heart, it now has to be worrying about my brain!!!
Avatar f tn I do suffer from allergies so I thought it’s sinus and I went to doctors but none really took the headaches as serious as the anxiety . They offered me anxiety medications but I prefer to overcome anxiety naturally because I believe it’s something I gave myself so I need to rid of it myself n I believe I can. The only issue now is this pressure in my sinus area . I can’t eirk out because the pressure increases . There are very little moments that I don’t notice it but it’s rare lately .

323238 tn?1223756954 I was wondering if anybody else get all of a sudden serve headaches from there anxiety.
Avatar f tn Yes, headaches can DEFINITELY come from high levels of anxiety. Your anxiety creates a lot of undue stress on your body which, in turn, tends to create other symptoms such as headaches, stomach cramps, and other nuisances and symptoms. Anxiety can also cause extreme tension and many many headaches are whats called 'Tension Headaches' and they can be extremely long in duration, Days, weeks, months... So, I would say that 'Yes' it is very possible your headaches could be caused by your anxiety.
Avatar m tn Hi, The headaches may be tension headaches. They may result from anxiety or tension. But occipital headaches must be investigated. They may result from a growth or tumour at the back of the brain. Please go for CT scan or MRI of the brain and consult a neurologist for diagnosis and treatment. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
Avatar m tn Headaches (all day long), Dizziness, Fatigue, Insomnia (anxiety) , Tingling (face, hands, & feet), Sleep Apnea, Rapid Heartbeat About a year and a half ago I started getting these symptoms…… Last May I had UPPP and Septoplasty done for my sleep apnea....b/c a lot of these syndromes are caused by not having sleep. After the surgery…I continued having these symptoms…my ENT recommended me to go see a Neurologist…..all my test came back fine.
Avatar f tn this week complaining of headaches, dizziness, sleepiness and now has started to stutter in her speech. Are all these connected? No recent head injury.
Avatar f tn That said, there are a number of other factors that can create headaches, to include anxiety, muscle tension, and excessive worry. I would suspect that your headaches which, as you described them, are only ocassional, are the result of a situational issue rather than the Klonopin. Learning "deep breathing" and "meditation" techniques will greatly enhance your ability to ward off these headaches in the future.
1243543 tn?1269127622 I have been diaganosed with anxiety and i know i have medical anxiety is goes from one thing to another but i keep geeting these headaches alot of pressure in different spots feels like someone pushing there fingers hard into my head sometimes on the top,above my eyes and in my temples my neck hurts too.It`s not the worse headache of my life but very annoying my eyes hurt too.I went to the doc and they said its tension ,stress and my sinuses but i cant stop worrying its a brain annerysm.
Avatar n tn Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! Headaches could be migraine, cluster headaches, stress and anxiety related or could be due to tumor in the brain. They could also be due to refractive errors. They could also be due to cervical spondylitis especially if you are using computers for a long time. Headaches can also be due to high or low blood pressure. If the stuttering etc is due to some anxiety or tension, they can be tension headaches.
Avatar n tn does anyone seem to get headaches all the time whether its everyday or close to. i get them almost everyday, and sometimes only one area of my head is effected by it. also has anyone ever had a sharp pain in their head while bending down?? im so scared that its yet again a tumor and i called my doc today and she didnt even want to see me she just said to take a tylonal.
Avatar n tn I have suffered for a year now with bad anxiety. My headaches have gotten better, way better. I think it's the xanax for anxiety and or the toprol for blood pressure. I never ever took blood pressure medicine till a year ago. I always had good bp. How is your husbands blood pressure? Just having headaches all your life will stress a person out. I sincerely sympathize with your husband. That's really compassionate of you to care enough about your husband to search online for him.
Avatar m tn If you were my patient, I would advise you that your headaches are almost certainly tension headaches. A brain tumor is extremely unlikely and would usually present with different symptoms. I would advise trying some massage therapy to see if the headaches respond to that. An MRI of your head and neck could be safely done during pregnancy as this does not involve any radiation, but I would probably have you evaluated by a neurologist before recommending an expensive test like that.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? Your headaches could be due to anxiety and sleep deprivation. Other possibilities are neuralgias, sinusitis and headache due to allergies. I would suggest you to take OTC pain killers and see if the headaches disappear. Also make sure that you eat and sleep well and are not under undue stress. If your condition still does not improve please get yourself evaluated by a clinician. Take care!

409474 tn?1202475685 Hey guys =] I think most of you would agree that late night and early morning arethe worst times for anxiety throughout the day.. But, lately i've been getting these horrible headaches late at night. I'm going to the doctor today, but I was just wondering if anyone felt the same?
Avatar n tn Do you suffer from anxiety? This could be an anxiety issue, but if you're concerned about it go to the doctor and ask for a thorough exam.
780647 tn?1304024542 It's probably anxiety. If this is your first baby, than it has to be anxiety. The whole situation is probably overwhelming for your natural body habits. If breastfeeding, just stick to home remedies like an ice pack on the forehead, drink lots of water (avoid ice cold water) and try to rest as much as you can. If you're not breastfeeding, just take Advil. It's effective.

Avatar n tn Headaches are of different types like tension, migraine, sinus and cluster headaches. Your headaches seem to be coming in cycles with either pain free interval or reduced intensity. They seem like cluster headaches. Please see these two links for more information on them.
6726276 tn?1421130268 Nothing has changed. Same meds, same diet, same stressors. But.. I started getting very severe headaches. Not quite Migraine yet but bad. Aspirin & coffee helps. Deep breathing helps. Acupressure. I'm wondering why I'm getting headaches again? What do you do for headache pain?
