Head and neck tension along with Anxiety😤

I have been having severe anxiety for about a month now maybe a little more and it got better at times and at others worst. The most annoying thing I have been experiencing is head and neck tension. This symptom had came on about two weeks into my anxiety and has continued on until now. I tend to overthink feelings I have from anxiety so when I feel this tension and it makes me feel off I sometimes tend to panic a little bit but when I get over it the feeling of tension continues following it is a weird feeling that is uncomfortable which sometimes causes me more anxiety. I have been struggling with this and wanted to see what other people can advise me to do to help this head and neck tension.
