I can t face the gym and I ve been off work all week. A gp said I have a tension headache . Could this cause my symptoms? Is it all in my head? I want to be back to the old me. I m starting to feel down and worried.

Dear Nicolavb
You have not told us the character of your headache i.e. whether it is associated with any other symptom, its site, whether it is throbbing or not. But as there is some after effects associated with it, it appears to be more like migraine only. For acute episodes you can take pain killers that are most effective at the start of the headache and post headache you may feel tiredness for which the only thing you can do is take some pain killers and do some relaxation exercises like yoga, pranayam and meditation. Hope this will help you.
