Posted , 4 users are following.

Long story short I suffer with bad health anxiety, for the past 3 weeks iv had bad dizziness, chest pain etc I went to gp who has now referred me to a neurologist as I keep getting sharp head pains, BP is normal had ecg and blood tests all normal,the thing that's scaring me the most is today from about midday iv had pain in my head just above my ear but actually on my head it feels sore to touch as though it's bruised ( I havent banged It or anything ) it feels like a burning blistering pain and I'm having to rub my head it's scaring me because its not like a headache just really sore to touch but there's nothing there!! I feel like I'm gunna die or something bad Is gunna happen to me, could it be a type of headache? I need some reassurance please has any one had this before? It's just on one side of my head and I'm scared iv got a blood clot or something šŸ˜¢ what could this be? I thought ir could be my hair been up but iv took my hair out the bobble and it's still there sad it's making me really anxious and paracetamol isn't working can a blood clot just come like that? I don't want to go to hospital because iv been so many times about other problems (chest pain and usual anxiety symptoms ) can someone just please reassure me that it's some sort of headacheor that I'm not gunna drop dead any minute sad the fact it's lasted nearly all day is just worrying me,

thanks in advance laura x

    It might be a closed sebacious gland causing an imflammation.Ā  You can get these when the hair folicles block and close the pore so that the sebacious fluid is trapped under the skin.

    I get that too.... And lots of pressure in my head I got ct scan they said it's fine.... I started seeing a psychologist and he said it's a normal anxiety symptom.... I also see so many people that complain about the same exact thing that have anxiety

      The nuerologist will exam you and know what needs to be checked out. Put on some music or your favorite shows and try to side track all the what ifs. You are going to scare yourself silly. The same time will pass weather your panicy or keep busy so go for the keeping busy part. Good luck and feel better

      I'm 23 also... And I almost always have all these symptoms and the chest pains... Burning in chest...., heaviness in chest.... I could go on and on lol it sounds like health anxiety.... It doesn't go away it just comes up whenever it feels like.... I could just be sitting here totally fine and start feeling pressure in my head or chest pains or whatever the symptoms are that day... It's horrible

    Hi Laura.

    I'm hear to save you and give you peace of mind. I also suffer from health anxiety and I've experienced the exact same symptoms you're experiencing now. Please believe me when I say it's nothing but the side effects of health anxiety and general axiety. I have experienced extreme head pain on the left side of my head above my ear to the extent where my face actually went numb, let me tell you I was convinced it was a clot and I thought I was going to have a stroke and die but to my relief it was just anxiety side effects. Since then I have learned to over come my anxiety ( to a point ) but still haveĀ recurrences of health anxiety where I have intense fear that there is something wrong with me or something bad is going to happen but I have done my best to learn to overcome that intense fear and my side effects have sinceĀ diminished. I basically just want to reassure you that you are perfectly ok and that if it were a blod clot the symptoms would be far worse. YOU ARE OKAY!! smile Trust me I know what I'm talking about.

    Hope this helps you, message me whenever you need smile

    Just Breath

    Kind Regards

    James smile
