Address the stressor: Sometimes addressing the emotional stressors with a proactive approach will eliminate the ha problem, but your headache could be a migraine mechanism with evolution of chronic daily headaches. This pattern needs to be broken up, and many prescription and otc preps could help. A local neurologist should be found, so you can address all of this.

Agree w Dr. Machanic: Address specific stressors. In addition to valuable info already provided - work to manage your stress. o address stress: Talk about feelings & address problems. Don't avoid them. Aim for 7.5 - 8 hours of sleep/ night. Daily physical activity is optimal in a green space. Eat healthfully. Cut out junk carbs, caffeine & alcohol (or moderate). Try Qi Gong, Tai Chi, acupuncture, acupressure,>
