I'm 20 years old and for the past year i've been suffering from really bad nerve pains( i think) in the back of my head/neck when anxious or angry.
Basically, it all started on Holiday, I'd been hungover and i was in the all you can eat buffet which was a room packed full of people, anyway as i picked my drink up and braught it towards my eye (i was anxious) somthing in the back of my head/neck just went!! (i dont know if it was a nerve contraction). Anyway the pain was so intense, i felt like the back of my head was going into a stroke.
When i got back off holiday, the doctors couldnt tell me what it was, months later they sent me for MRI Scans and my brain was fine.
Tonight for example, i've dropped a work collegue off at home, and when i started driving (i was slightly anxious as i didn't know the person properly), i started expierencing this intense stabbing pain at the back left of my head. (the pain also spreads to my eyes) It is also made worse when i move my head or eyes.
I've also noticed if i was to have an argument and get angry at something, this sharp pain comes again at the back of my head.
Its also made worse, the day after i've been drinking.
This pain stops me doing normal activites in life, as i cant be anxious because i go into angony at the back of my head. The doctors think its anxiety, but i KNOW its not. They keep giving me anti depressents for it, and i've had enough. its ruining my life.
Does anybody think its nerve damage? Please somebody help me, or put me in the right direction.
