i know this is random but anyone have tricks to alleviate this? it starts midway through the first section and is a pain throughout the duration of the test/is distracting for me.

    Hi Gareljon- I noticed the same thing because I was sitting very hunched over. Since then, I've purposely tried to relax my shoulders throughout the test and breathe more. During the 15-minute break, I would definitely recommend some neck/shoulder/arm exercises to help relieve that and keep your calm. Good luck!

    I have been having the same issue! I tend to get tension headache by the 5th sections.

    You should most certainly look into back, neck, and shoulder stretches from yoga! I am a yoga teacher and cant stress enough that stretching pre & post stress inducing activities will help ease tension!!! Good luck!

    I have read some posts that say to wear heating patches throughout the test to keep the muscles warm and relaxed.
