No matter what ever the types of post traumatic headache, with pain can come emotional issues.  It is not unlikely that pain can cause depression or even anxiety.  If you think about it when you are in pain there isn’t a lot of positive feelings going on and pain can cause a domino effect.  Psychologist and or pain specialist may become involved to help with the pain caused by the headache to help the patient deal better with the pain.  Cognitive-behavioral, stress management and biofeedback therapies can be very helpful.  These types of therapies should be provided by a professionals that are trained to work with patients with chronic pain.
