Treatment for Anxiety and Headaches
April 24, 2014 at 10:31am
I seem to have anxiety and headaches while at work. My physician said that it could be from stress.
I excercise 4-5 times a week to help with the anxiety. And I was placed on medications, but I could not take them because the itching side effect was terrible.
Is there anything else I can do to help with the anxiety since I cannot take the medications my physician suggested?

Not every time, but sometimes when I eat, I start to get hiccups and then experience pain in my upper chest area. I then feel that I have a lot of mucus to spit up. I have Tourette Syndrome and I turn my head to the left a lot and have neck and face twitches. I am sometimes stressed when I am eating a meal, but not all the time.
