This doesn't really sound like your main problem is career related, although that probably contributes. Have you been to a doctor and gotten bloodwork done? Gotten your vitamin D levels checked etc. Have they diagnosed with anything? What's your diet/exercise/weight like? Do you get enough sleep?

If you do an hour of vigorous exercise and 20-30 min in a sauna that will treat most of your anxiety for about 24 hours. I deal with anxiety, and a workout plus time in a sauna will definitely help with anxiety, it sucks that excess energy out of you and reduces most of the negative chatter in your head. Studies have shown it also reduces all cause mortality by like 40%. I like to watch a lot of youtube, so I'll go to the gym, do a solid hour on the exercise bike while watching youtube videos, kind of kills two birds with one stone. Then I'll go in the sauna for about 20 min and feel a million times better when I leave, it's pretty amazing. A lot of the time fatigue/depression is just physiological.

Do you have arthritis? I read a book by a doctor that has a theory that arthritis is caused by gluten allergy. Your walls in your gut are really really thin, the wall is used to filter out bad stuff and only let in good stuff, and if you have a negative response to gluten, it can open up that wall, let bad stuff in and cause inflammation throughout parts of your body. If you have arthritis like symptoms, might need to do an elimination diet to test for inflammatory response to gluten. Here's the book if you want

Hey there. I've been getting migraines since I was 3, I'm 30 now. Two years ago I had a major change in frequency and type of migraine, I kept getting my old, occasional migraine, but on top of that was an almost daily migraine that started above my left eye and radiated out. I had that one for about a year, solid.

I believe you are not in the US, so I don't know if the same meds are available to you, but I'll tell you everything that I did.

I've taken Maxalt, but I am now mainly on Sumatriptan and Naratriptan. I can layer those if one alone doesn't work. If neither of those knock out a migraine, I can go to a nurse's clinic and get a shot of Toradol. My doc put me on a daily dose of Nortriptyline; at one point I was taking 40 mg of it. I experienced a lot of side effects from the Nortriptyline, but it worked at cutting the daily migraine down to a few times a week. I eventually weaned myself off of it because I couldn't handle the side effects any more.

I started changing everything in my life to see what else could be causing the migraines. I've been gluten free for a few years now (that's one of my triggers), so I cut down on caffeine and sugar, but I also switched over to a fresher diet. I try to minimize the amount of preservatives in my diet, especially avoiding deli meat. I started working out regularly and going to acupuncture, too.

All of this helped, to a point; I was still getting migraines without being able to find a cause. I started reading about the gut's connection to everything in the body, and I realized that a lot of my problems could be traced back to medical issues I experienced as an infant. I decided to get The Immune System Recovery Plan and talked to my GI and acupuncturist about following her diet. They both agreed it was worth a try. Definitely talk to a doc before trying any major changes. The point of this diet is to re-balance the bacteria in the gut and to help fix what is called "leaky gut." There are four diets to follow, and they can be overlapped. They focus on gut bacteria, adrenal stress, the liver, and leaky gut.

I'm nearing the end of the intensive part of the (combined) diet and I am feeling so much better. The past two weeks I have gotten one migraine each week, but they were fairly minor and went away easily with one medication. I am hoping that the migraines will reduce even more as my body continues to adjust.

Wow, sorry for the wall of text. I hope this helps.

You’re welcome! I hope you can find relief! I used to live with chronic acid reflux, taking stomach meds every day, burping up bile all the time, it was horrible. Back then, I had no idea about food and it’s effects on the body and ironically, aside from dr’s telling me to not eat spicy food and tomatoes, I received no relief. Finding relief through proper diet (the one that’s right for you), is an amazing feeling!

You might consider this book which helps those with autoimmune issues and food sensitivities. Hang in there!
