I get these really horrendous tension headaches. For some reason the second a little bit of stress enters my life my neck completely stiffens up and the pain seems to wrap up one side of my head and into my eyes and jaw line turning it into a migraine tension headache. I got one of these yesterday. I tried everything, ice to the back of my neck to take down the swelling, drinking an energy drink for some caffeine, using the heating pad and taking a ton of Excedrin tension pills. I've gone to my doctor and this was her solutions 1-"Just try and not let all that stress enter your body." 2-" Maybe you should think about joining massage envy it's only about $50 a month to join." Are you kidding me lady?!?!?! I want my last resort to be to have to go to Urgent Care for something. But I wanted to see if any of you on here had any at home tricks I could use. I need some relief from this.
