Hi Louise,

It is possible for you to have headaches all the time and it not be serious.
Headaches are at the top of the list of symptoms for stress and anxiety and that is probably why you get them a lot because you are anxious.

Have you asked your GP about your headaches?

I know it's easy to say, but try not to think about it, take some painkillers, put a wet flanel on your forehead go to bed, close your eyes concentrate on your breathing and you will be asleep in no time.....(I get really bad migranes (due to hormone inbalance) and this always works for me)

Love Louisa xxx

Hi there,
It is possible that you are having chroinc tension headaches, I suffered with them for years, For years I always thought it was my sinus, after many test and visit to the doctors, I was diganoused with tension headaches. They can can be chronic and last for weeks even months.

Do you have any muscle tension in your neck & shoulders? do you clench your teeth? Do you tense you neck & shoulder muscles? I do all of this and I do not even realize I do it. It has become such a bad habit which causes the tension headaches.
Hope this has been helpful.
