Head Popped

Posted , 4 users are following.

So I was sat at work on Monday and something really scary happened, the back left side of my head popped and then something warm ran down my head, I booked in to see the doctor straight away as was really scared and he seem to think is was my neck but felt in the back of my head! I left it a day and went back again today as since have had a bad headache (I do suffer with them anyway) and saw a different doctor and she is under the same impression as the other doc that it is my neck causing the issues, I have really bad health anxiety and have managed to winde myself up about it, I am off on holiday tomorrow and explained this to the doctor and they have said that if that thought that it was anything serious then they would not let me fly, it was just scary, anyone else had this happen?

    I actually know what you are talking about. Yes yes it is one strange sensation and scary. Because you think oh no a stroke. Good you went to the doctor! That was smart. They know what to look for. I think its just a ton stress and tightning the neck and muscles and it all gets too much ohycially on the body and the body itself reacts. They would know looking into your eyes and such if it were serious.  Theres a similar kind called ice oick headaches that give off really off headache with a frozen feeling. Our bodies can do such strange strange things. Mris do not lie and are verified by two different doctors and by technology so youre safe here. I think you causes some form of your own teigger point theraoy in a bad way by accident and the body very well knows how to self heal this stuff. Go and enjoy your holiday.

    Yes I've had that happen I also get to where the right side of my face goes numb and stays like that for a little while. The more I think about it the longer it stays it's right under my eye. I've googled reasons for this and it says stroke or anxiety I'm 26 pretty healthy but I have a bad anxiety disorder so I'm trying to rule out stroke.
