Default does anyone get headaches before they place an order

I get headaches a lot in fact I have migraines a lot.but when ever I am getting ready to place an order I start having headaches.or whenever I am on the computer too long.When I get over excited about things like when I know my order is coming in the next day.justtalking about the new catalog.

But I can't help reading all the post about it.Another time I get a headache is when I have swaps that need to get out.I usually am never late.I always have them there in plenty of time.But I sign up for a swap and I feel like I have to get it done a.s.a.p..

Does anyone else get headaches for these reasons.I know I'm axiouse to get the swaps back and my orders.but can't figure out why I get them at these times.Maybe I just need to take a break from all of this.

Stress is a MAJOR headache trigger, weather it is 'regular' headache, or migraines.

Dont really know what to suggest other than relaxing and have fun!

as for me getting headaches....

well, I stay well away from dark chocolate, otherwise the migraine I would get would knock me out for the rest of the day and night, and the following day would not be too plesant either.

And the usuall pre-period migraine as well, but it usually is not so bad.

I also get headaches and migraines when I am stressed, so do my best to controll my stress levels. Same goes for my sister - but she is not so successful at keeping her stress levels down sometimes.

Do you take anything for migraines?? I used to get them all the time, and for whatever reason something's triggering them again!! (Didn't think about blaming the new catty!!) I take Imitrex when I get a headache and they really help, they have all sorts of prescription meds to help with migraines now, you should look into them if you haven't already Good luck to you, one more thought I wouldn't tell the doc that it's a stamping related headache or he/she might try to talk you into quitting, and we can't have that!!!

I get major sinus headaches within minutes of going outside. Obviously there are allergy issues there. Advil cold and sinus is the only thing that works for me.

Default Set a timer for 20 mins...

I get headaches from reading SCS too long as well. I have to use a timer to limit it to 20 minutes, then I take a break and sometimes do some stretching. I also find I have to be way more selective about which threads I read.

I also get stressed out when I am submitting an order. I don't want to have "buyers remorse" (which I did quite often in the beginning), nor do I want to pass on a set in the Mini Catalogues and then long for it after it is no longer available!! But I just tell myself I will make some mistakes once in awhile and it's not the end of the world, and I can't buy all of the sets so I just try to accept that I will have anguish over a few that I skip! I also tell myself there will always be more great sets in the next mini or the next catalogue! (Lesson on self-talk over!)

Hope you figure out what makes your headaches better!

Cheers!
