Tips for Easing Anxiety
When you live with migraine, the fear of another attack is constant. So, it’s no surprise that anxiety is common among migraine sufferers.
It could be that the anxiety was a pre-existing condition, but often it develops as a result of migraine. The pain and stress of dealing with a chronic illness makes for perfect conditions for anxiety.
The fear and anxiety of having an attack can actually trigger one, which then leads to more anxiety — it’s a vicious cycle.
It’s important to stop this cycle before it begins in order to save yourself from an attack — take control of anxiety before it takes control of you. Just remember to relax, breathe, and stop those racing thoughts.
