I’ve been getting stress/anxiety induced (mild) headaches since the end of July. I went to both my GP/PCP and an allergist who feel that it’s tension headaches due to (wedding) stress. The headaches are mild, and are more annoying than painful. They’re either near my temples, in the back of the head, or wrap around from the back to the side of the head.
I’m sick and tired of feeling like this!

Oh no! That sounds awful. Here’s to hoping they ease up soon!

Get a back & shoulder & scalp deep tissue massage if you can. (The kind where it really hurts when they stick their thumbs in the knots for ages but then feels better after) Or wrangle FI/ a friend to do this for you. If you sit in one position for long periods of time set a timer and do some light stretching. I still get bad stress/tension headaches and I’ve found that fixing the muscle tension helps a ton.
Obviously, being less stressed helps too 🙂 but that’s harder than the above.

@hedgehogcatcher: I have some massage gift certificates so I’m looking to see where I can use them. Thanks for the suggestion 🙂
