Hello applebrandy and welcome to HW
I've suffered with anxiety for years with seizures and bipolar.
I've had headaches for years off and on and the pain can spread, the more stressed we get the worse the pain gets besides where it triggers in the body..what actually causes this is muscle contraction and the more stress and anxiety which comes at we at the time the tighter the contractions get plus they cause spasms, which does become painful.
I take Diazepam only 5mg but it does settle my head and slows the cell ceptors in the brain but for the extra pain if my methotrexate can't handle so much is I take paracetamol 500mg tabs which helps relieve the pressure besides the spasms.
When you told to change your routine and make things less stressful, I've found at times they still come at we for some reason.Terry
