Ask the Nurse

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?

There are non-medication treatments for both anxiety and headaches. The following are effective therapies for both anxiety and headaches:

  • Acupuncture
  • Regular exercise
  • Aromatherapy
  • Massage
  • Yoga
  • Tai chi
  • Regular sleep
  • Adequate vitamin D and B complex
