Hey all, just joined because I am trying to cope and see what I can do to help myself.

I am 24 years old, female and have always been pretty healthy. Until last year. I was having issues from the beginning of 2016 with pleurisy. Then I developed costo. Then it was asthma. I have an emergency inhaler and I take singular off and on when I feel like my chest is hurting/hard to breathe. After a month, it all went away. (This was about June 2016). Then, out of no where, I start getting right sided headaches. Had a lot of research on that and it was put down as migraines. They were chronic, like everyday, I would have pain. I was put on some migraine meds, one ended up helping a bit and then suddenly it all went away. This was December 2016. I was good for about 6 months, and then about June of this year I started getting my headaches again. Saw my GP, she ordered me a MRI of the brain (no contrast) and it came back normal.

Hi M.O. and welcome!

Physical issues are understandably triggers for anxiety. You are certainly not alone in your struggles in this regard.

Seeking to treat both the illness and the worry it causes is key. Migraines are not unusual in a woman your know that this is something that's benign and manageable.

Check our Resources at the top of the main forum page here for great self help material that you can get started with for reducing your stress/anxiety...

...and if you find you need further help, then talking with your doctor would be the next step to learn of your other options.

Post with us anytime for support and encouragement. We understand, care and support is key!
