Can that muscle you said cause face head pain and neck band headache ?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

absolutely it can

the muscles are all connected

Dr. Phil, MD and 4 other Medical Specialists are ready to help you
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
thought so.
So a combination of anxiety causing the muscle to tighten ? Reducing blood flow ?
Customer: replied 1 year 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 1 year ago.
I am. Its not a migraine though
Customer: replied 1 year 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 1 year ago.
Combination of the two
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
A lot of people like me out there mate ? With similar stress symtoms. ? So aff to bed its stress of some kind not serious
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
