Hi dr David
Anxiety Mark here
I have a stiff neck and a band headache on and off its my usual tension headache when this goes I get ibs wind moving and slight nausea
Can it be my anxiety kicking in ?
This is Dr. Davidanxiety can cause neck tension and headaches.if you have runny nose or sinus issues, these can also cause headaches as well.but it sounds like you have had this tension headache before.deep breathing and mental visualization and meditation and relaxation techniques could help you decrease anxiety and help your headaches as well.
