thought so.
So a combination of anxiety causing the muscle to tighten ? Reducing blood flow ?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Hi mate just read a thing on that muscle the trigger points are exactly where I press to relieve headache !
Also.i failed the tests on the site turning my head 45 degrees can't do it without pain in neck and back. And turning head stiff and painful again.
Mate I think your right it says this muscle is called the migraine maker by docs are you aware of this ?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 7 months ago.
I am. Its not a migraine though
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Bonus paid pal.
Yep I was a migraine sufferer until I was 14 then they went. Gone
Made me sick always. Brought on by sunlight and flat pop !! As I remember.
I think you are right mate can the anxiety cause the muscle to stiffen ? Or does the muscle tear then I get anxious of the headache ?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 7 months ago.
Combination of the two
