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.
