Anyone who has suffered from chronic headaches knows how depressing the endless days of pain can be. Which came first, the depression or your headaches. Is it a migraine headache or a tension headache. The info is now saying specifically migraines, do indeed cause depression, not the other way around. Migraine sufferers are very affected emotionally. This may be casued by the unpredictability of when attacks occur, and the limited ability to control a migraine once it starts.
Tension headaches may be set off by anxiety and if you can remove the trigger you may reduce the headache pain.
Keep posting and know we are here for you.
