Question: jayhawk1 asked... In the last year my husband and I separated under good terms- I have always been a nervous person- and this made it worse. My doctor gratefully put me on Xanax .5mg at first I only took them occasionally then in the last year it increased to daily- now I sometimes take 1.0 mg.

Hello, I have been having sharp throbbing pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders. This pain has been going on for a few weeks. I also have bad pain all around the top of my head.

Other symptoms I am experiencing is nausea, occasional tenderness, I feel emotional and vulnerable, and there is pressure in my head and I do feel it when I move it or sit still.
