The last three months of my life have been quite full on, dealing with my parents getting divorced and then dealing with two family members passing away all in 3 months.
I'm 21 years old, I'm very healthy I'm also fit, and have been suffering from anxiety for a few years. But I could control it and the anxiety never took over me. In the last 6 months I started to notice that the anxiety had started to take over and would interfere with my life. My thoughts were out of control, and I had constant thoughts about dying and health anxiety.
And within the last three months of these events happening my anxiety has completely taken over my life where I have been having panick attacks on a regular basis. Starting 9 weeks ago I started getting this pressure in my head, at first I never thought of it, but as the days and weeks went on it was never ending and made my anxiety much worse and made my symptoms in my head worse.
Long story short it's 9 weeks later and I'm still here with the exact same head ache I have had since day 1. Can be a pressure, a dull ache on top of my head, shooting pains in my scalp, crawling feelings in my scalp, tender scalp to touch and the list goes on and on. And I cannot describe in words how much anxiety and grief this has caused me when I'm already going through my own grieving process.
I've been to numerous amounts of doctors and they all say it's stress and anxiety related due to my circumstances. I am booked in for a CT scan on Tuesday to finally rule out if it is anything serious??
My anxiety and these headaches have taken over my life, and not to mention I'm in constant pain and the non stop obsessive worrying that I have something in my head that's not going to be bad news.
If anyone has anythig similar to this? Or has gone through something like this?? I would love some advice to what to do or what happens from now.
I'm scared to death for the ct scan but my doctor thinks it's necessary because of all this anxiety it's causing. Sorry I forgot to mention I'm not showing any signs like blurred vision, vomiting, or any neurological symptoms that could relate to something serious.
Thanks so much in advanced
