Migraine and cervical are two separate terms related to medical conditions. Let me explain each one to you:
Migraine: Migraine is a neurological disorder characterized by recurring moderate to severe headaches, often accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, and visual disturbances. Migraine headaches are usually pulsating or throbbing in nature and can last for hours to days. Some individuals may experience an "aura" before the onset of the headache, which can involve visual disturbances, tingling sensations, or difficulty speaking. Migraines can significantly impact a persons quality of life and may require medical treatment for relief.
Cervical: The term "cervical" refers to the cervical spine or the neck region of the spine. It consists of seven vertebrae (C1-C7) and provides support to the head while allowing for mobility and flexibility. Cervical-related conditions typically involve the neck and its associated structures. Common cervical issues include cervical spine disorders, such as cervical spondylosis (degenerative changes in the spine), cervical radiculopathy (nerve compression in the neck), cervical disc herniation (ruptured disc in the neck), or cervical strain (neck muscle strain). These conditions can cause pain, stiffness, limited range of motion, and sometimes radiating symptoms into the arms or shoulders.
Sleep anxiety is fear or worry about going to sleep. You may be apprehensive about not falling asleep or not being able to stay asleep. Some people also have a distinct phobia, or fear, about sleep called somniphobia. They may think something bad will happen to them while they sleep, or that they shouldn’t sleep because they need to stay alert and watchful.
Sleep anxiety can affect adults, teens and children. You may be more likely to develop anxiety at night if you have a sleep disorder such as:
Restless legs syndrome (RLS).
People with the following mental health disorders may also develop nighttime anxiety:
Drug addictions or alcoholism.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
When you can’t sleep due to anxiety, you may experience behavioral changes, including:
.Feelings of being overwhelmed.
.Inability to concentrate.
.Sense of impending .
.danger or doom.
Physical effects of anxiety before bed may include:

Some common ways to improve your sleep hygiene include:
.Avoid drinking lots of fluids before bed, especially alcohol.
.Do relaxing activities before bed, such as meditation or listening to soft, peaceful music.
.Don’t consume caffeine in the late afternoon or evening.
.Don’t go to bed unless you feel sleepy.
.Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day.
.If you don’t fall asleep within 20 minutes, get out of bed.

.Only use your bed for sleep . For example, avoid watching television or doing work in bed.
Set a goal of getting at least seven hours of sleep every night.
