Stress and Migraine

Posted on April 16, 2018

"If stress is causing your migraines, consider meditation, soaking in an aromatherapy bath or even just massaging your face or neck. I've noticed lately that I evidently clench my jaw a lot and it's made the muscles feel ropey but if I massage them it helps with a headache." -A member on MyMigraineTeam
