    Hello. Aw don't worry. Lots of people have scans everyday. Very soon you'll have an answer to what's causing it. Anxiety and panic can cause such intense symptoms that can be easily mid read as something serious when intact its usually harmless. My partner gets a lot of sinilar problems to the ones you mention too so youre not alone. Just try and take some time out and do more of what relaxes you and look after yourself.

    Always here to talk. Emma.

      Have you considered therapy? CBT ( behavioural therapy) may be a me to help you? I've just started myself smile

      Also do you have any friends and family to talk to about it ?

      I've had anxiety since 14 now 24.. so my parents are a bit sick of telling me it's anxiety and me panicking all the time.. so sounds stupid but I tend to talk to the dog and cry on him. I tried cbt didn't work but have a councillin appointment in September.. so see what route they send me down. rolleyes it's just I worry about the symptoms.. that come on even when I'm relaxed they come on so that makes me think it's not anxiety.. but then I cause anxiety.. no wonder I have inaomnia haha

    Hi Emma,

    I have suffered all of your symptoms including more and have recently been diagnosed with Hemeplegic migraines and commenced on a medication that appears to working.

    I still get the popping you describe and the pressure but not as frequent as I was.

    I too thought there was something really bad wrong with me and had a CT scan and lots of tests.

    Also I developed anxiety with this (I wouldnt even shower alone in the bathroom) incase something happened and no one was there.

    How long have you had these symptoms? How old are you? If you dont mind me asking. Im 26 and had never experienced any migraines before in my life and when they told me this it was the awful feelings and sensations were I found it hard to believe as as far as I was aware Migraines were just a really bad headache.

    If you have a look at my first post I posted I list all of my symptoms that I have experienced over the last 7 months which include numbness in one side of my face, lips tingling and chin just like you. I would google each symptoms as it comes along and just freak myself out.

    Hope you are okay. I felt awful and knew my friends and ffamily were starting to get annoyed me.

    Hey emma, i feel the same way as you.

    Head feels really pressured, has done for the past month.

    Dizziness walkin round, i think i have health anxiety/general.

    My sinus isnt really bad, but it tightens every now and then.

    I just want it to go away.

    I feel really alone and hate sleeping by myself etc

    Just brings it on even more.

    I had a really bad day today, woke up with a weird line on my thumb (mustve slept on it) but the night before (and today) its felt weak and numb.

    Plus i had red chunks in my stool (had tomatoes last night)

    So im sure you can imagine today has been the worst day for me so far.

    Cant even play computer games or watch dvds.

    I also think its something physical, doctors dont understand.
