Have you taken any pain killers for the headache? That will hopefully sort that one out. Maybe you're overtired and need to have a nap?
With the heart thing it sounds like you need to work on relaxing your body down.
Progressive muscle relaxation is a good place to start.
You can listen to a track to guide you here:
Otherwise have a look on RO for other ways to relax, like focus on your breathing and doing other activities, like maybe writing down how you feel or something.
Hope this helps.
Have you had these headaches before? If it gets worse, I'd go to emergency as it could be something serious. Curling up in child's pose and rolling on top of your head can help too(make sure you are hydrated well first though!) Sleeping can help too. If all else fails, go to your GP and ask for stronger pain meds if paracetemol or asprin don't kick it.
I have actually been suffering from headaches every single day for the last 2+ months. Sometimes they get really bad. Went to the doc multiple times and it's all stress, anxiety induced. SOOOO...my plan is to see an acupuncturist when I finish my uni exams, as meds sometimes don't even work.
But yes, definitely get it checked out if it's different for you and prolongs.
