Is this specific to math?

OR

Is this article basically saying "people with anxiety for something feel anxiety before they do that thing"?

probs specific to the anxiety towards math i guess... but even still I never heard this... I get massive headaches after long sessions of complicated maths but I have never heard of anyone feeling pain like this.... I feel a wagon is soon to be jumped on by many pathetic people (not saying this isnt true I just know some people will soon say they have this when they dont just cause they are thick or lazy)
