I've had the same annoying headache for 8 days straight. This is new for me- I've always gotten headaches and the occasional migraine from anxiety (2-4 times a month) and I can usually take a normal dose of Excedrin and its gone. I've had the same headache now for 8 days- its not a bad headache, it doesn't stop me from going to work, falling asleep or running errands but its definitely concerning because when I take Excedrin it doesn't stop.
I stopped taking Excedrin after day 5 out of fear of getting rebound headaches or become dependent on painkillers.
I guess my biggest concern is- is this normal? Is it possible for me to be getting headaches from the fear of getting a headache? This is a very depressing way to live. I can happily (well, maybe not happily) deal with the anxiety, the cold sweats, the heavy to shallow breathing and the chest pain but I'm not okay living my life with constant headaches. I would rather die.
Has anyone else experienced this? What have you done that helps or has made it go away? I'm desperate at this point.
