Hi, i'm 20 years old and i'm experiencing a chronic headache for 2 years now. It sounds ridiciolus, but heres the whole story...
I am having chronic headaches for 2 years now and it took me so long, because i had to wait for a lof ot tests and appointments. This headache never goes away, it's constant, only one-sided. I can't concentrate or think straight because of it. It started 2 years ago when I went for a run and after long distance and was so tired that my hearth was pounding like crazy for an hour. I couldn't breathe and I was on my knees and I panicked. I do not know whether it is ALSO a cause but I used to smoke marijuana heavily for a year and before I went to jog, I felt derealisation, like I was in the movie. I had MRI+contrast of my brain, examined eyes, ears, sinuses, lungs and cervical spine x-ray, electrocardiogram of my hearth(like 5 times, lol), blood tests for everything(couple of times) + i never had cervical spine injury in my life. I've seen so many neurologists and even paid for one, she told me it's not lyme disease or trigeminal neuralgia (i asked about it, because my pain is one sided) and doctor told me that she is not seeing anything like trigeminal neuralgia. My pain is in 2 places only and it goes from the point in the picture to my hearth. Sometimes, especially after exercise I experience stinging in my hearth, like with a needle and sometimes I can't walk because of that feeling. But the worst thing is that headache, 24/7 headache. My GP doctor told me it can be anxiety related but for some reason i can't believe it. Marijuana caused it? My running adventure caused it? I don't know, I know i'm starting to lose it, it's making my life so difficult... i hope someone understand me. I went to psychiatrist recently and she gave me prescription for escitalopram. I'm afraid of taking these meds, because i don't know what to believe. Is it anxiety related, really?
