Welcome to SR. Have you seen a doctor or therapist about it? That would be the first step.

Hi biluta. Not sure how many days sobriety you have or if you have stopped drinking alcohol? But for me, during week 2 of sobriety I experienced significant anxiety and had a headache for a whole week...both passed. Wishing you well x

Hi Biluta, do you know if you are clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth at night? Both are anxiety induced behaviors and both can cause severe pain.
One way to reduce stress and anxiety is to quit drinking. It may get worse at first but it really does get better. If you are grinding your teeth you can see a dentist about having a special bite guard made that you put in at night. You can also see your doctor about a little electro-shock thing that you hook up to your face. I can't remember what it is called or what it does, but a friend used to use it and I remember it helped tremendously.
Best of luck.
