the past several days---I have been getting headaches here:
on both sides of my head
across front of my head
in the back of my head (where your skull/neck meet)?
Sometimes the pain is so bad---I can't lie on the back of my head to go to sleep!
What is this? OY (another thing to figure out--GDI)!

Hi, this is Kitt.  Is this the first time you have had this kind of headache?  Also how severe is the pain?  Headaches have many causes and yes, anxiety can cause a headache.  I would not venture to guess what is causing your headache.
My best advice to you would to suggest your follow up with your physician if the headache continues.
I hope you will soon be pain free.
Gentle Hugs to you.

Laurel.....I have to take Pred for my Crohns and I find it does give me a headache depending on the dosage I am on at the time ..the higher the dose the more likely I will get a headache....

I am not saying this is what you are experiencing for sure but throwing it out there for you .....I would really want to see or talk to my doc about this ongoing headache if it were I .......Just for reassurrance for self ..........

I am hoping you do have this go away asap and you are w/o pain
Those headaches are horrid and yes very debilitating .........

Hi Lyn!

It's 'weird' b/c I never wake up with the headache---it's just as the day goes on-----and then I get it on either side of my temples, across my forehead and at the base of my skull. Last night---I found myself "clampin" my jaw-----I also grind my teeth at night (although I don't realize it---hubby tells me)---so, I am sure this doesn't help?

But, yesterday, by the end of the day---my nose and forehead were tingling? OY----I am writing it all down, so I can call me doctor if it doesn't stop!
