I wonder if other people start feeling extreme emotional distress when a headache begins. Not because of the headache specifically, but it feels like the worries I have normally are skyrocketing - like I feel hopeless and that nothing will be okay. It's hard to explain but it frightens me. I also feel very alone. And I cry a lot. When the pain goes (24 hours to 2 days at its worst) I feel a lot better emotionally.
Another thing is I kind of rock my body back and forth when Im in pain. Like it comforts me or something. Is that normal?
I have a family (mother father siblings) that are NOT supportive. How can I comfort myself? Does vicks vapor rub help anyone? thanks. sorry this is so gloomy.
