I wake up most mornings feeling anxious and sometimes with a nasty headache which isn't relieved by ordinary OTC meds, so I no longer take them (especially as I'm concerned about rebound headaches possibility). The only thing that helps is Imigram, on prescription, but I am concerned that I get these when I am anxious about silly things.
For instance I am starting a new weekly 7-week course this evening - ironically one that could help me emotionally as it's about Mindfulness and Stress. But I have to go by bus into my local town in the cold and dark and I am dreading that, even though really it's nothing to worry about at all.
I also have a small group of friends coming tomorrow to have an art day, which I do every few weeks and I enjoy the days we have, but get in a state beforehand making sure the house is clean and tidy and that also can bring on migraines. I get them whether or not I am anxious or looking forward to an event and worrying that I MIGHT get a migraine can be enough to bring one on the following morning! I seem to be in a vicious circle/self fulfilling prophecy thing and am concerned that they are becoming more frequent. Does anyone else experience this and how do you cope?
