Headache for two months straight, stress/anxiety. please help!!!

Posted , 19 users are following.

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

    Im sorry you are going through all this, what you are feeling is indeed stress that made worse by anxiety, the headaches skin/scalp crawling feeling ive been through all those and much more, head pressure that shifts at the back, top and forehead, dizzy spell, fainting sensation and sharp or pins and needles, most of it just gone on its own and some stayed but its milder now .

    Its all anxiety and you said it yourself you dont have symptoms of any serious disease, for most of us well   we have many that can raise our anxiety even more.

    Trust your doctors, if theres nothing serious then thats good, all you have to do is focus on what your going through ryt now, you will be fine.

    I've had same symptoms as you for 5 years. It drives me mad. Startwd with a tingle up the back bottom of my head then to side of face then around again. Sometimes it burns, other times it tingles, Pressure, Creepycrawly feeling just under the surface of my head. Jaw ache, Sharp pains like little pins in my head, Tightness, Teeth feel weird too. I feel like its totally changed me not only as a person but a worried person who I never thought I would be. Its worse when I sit or talking to people. I get spacey feelings aswell. I also had full blood count, Xray, Mri , physio , Chiropractors . The list is endless. Anxiety is starting to ruin me...If u need to talk send me a message as I know what your going through..x

      Hi I'm going threw the same exact symptoms, I had really really bad anxiety about 5 years ago... I never had it before.. When I would have an attack my body would go Numb I thought I was having a heart attack I was having the worst headaches!! Couldn't pick my head up driving me nuts!! I'm 23 now that was when I was 18. I recently started getting chest pains an was hard for me to take a deep breathe an to inhale as soon as I feel weird in any way I suddenly think I'm going to have a heart attack or something bad is going to happen... Finally after 2 or 3 weeks of dealing with that out of no where it suddenly went away... Then out of no where my head started feeling weird all the symptoms you guys describe I've got. The tingle in your head all day long moves all around your head comes sometimes worst then others... Sometimes it's move painful then other times also... I've got every test done besides a cat scan or mri... Every test I did came back fine.. Just went to the doctor said everything was perfect but I still have this headace.. It drives me crazy I get nervous that somthing is wrong. I try to talk my self out of it an say it's nothing because I dealt with anexity for so long but it has gone away it's still there I don't no what to do I try to take aleeve but don't really help... I get pain on both sides of my head an in the back of my head... Comes an goes... But I have that wierd feeling all day long.. I don't know what to do!!!!

      You didn't describe how weird your teeth felt like?

      Does the pressure move around your gum teeth area? It doesn't hurt but feels annoying? Have you had your mouth open up so wide on it's own that it freaked you?

      Have you felt sharp long fangs (they are not your teeth, and you cannot see the psychsamatic delusion of what is coming out or what is inside your mouth that also moves inside your head).

      Dont be afraid, it will never bite you

      Hi Michael, sorry to hear you're going rhriugh the same as what I . It's horrible. What exactly are your symptoms? And what makes the the symptoms worse? Are you taking anything for the headaches? What have the doctors said about it all? My doctor is recommending me to get a CT scan because he believes nothing is wrong with me and that I need some peace of mind. I seriously don't see why and how I can have all these symptoms in my head? And no matter how hard I try to relax and tell myself it's okay nothing is working. I feel better that some of us are going through the same thing. That should make you feel better. But I know exactly what you mean by feeling worried and scared to death about what it is. It's horrible. Feel free to chat to me about it anytime.

      It's not weird to those who has experienced so not to worry cause you are here amongst those who can relate or at least try to understand. Mines started initially at my back, felt like fire. The anxiety rose from bottom to rise to my head, then it became wringlung and tight pressure, and can move. The movement although rose to my head, while the pressure was there, there were sensations in my hear that hurt but those are gone and so is the pain. Then sensation was in my teeth gums, then that pain is gone now, then it moved to my forehead, and it was very itchy but gone now, the pressure wiggle moved to the left of my head but never did nothing there, then it has clung like sticky to my right side of my head, and it's been unbearable pain and suffering . It's been 8 yrs now of my pain and suffering. I say to myself, it's better than having a seizure with foamng in my mouth. I'm glad you dont have the fangs that I can feel.

      I would really love to sue the Kundalini organizaton, but there is NO PROOF. The work stress was part of the enter the 'fire stage', then it burns you inside, and since I have radar focus in my forehead, I now conclude I was lead to that point in my life. Can't imagine the occult in this world, it's in business, in hollywood, in money, and yes....it is in medical too. The medical professionals dont know the symbol associated with Hermes, but they see this symbol all the time when they go to work but NEVER have they questioned it. That is ok, IT IS BETTER NOT TO KNOW OR TO LOOK (once you look and know, guess what of the pillar of salt? You turn frozen (meaning afraid) because you're being cleansed and their heart still the same, you then withdraw from the outside having become sensitive cause your mind and heart is being made beautiful. They call this either phobia, anti-social behaviour, etc but IT IS ONLY what they expect, what they eem acceptable so you are medically labelled ny tge medical watchdog (Once awakened, you will experience mental disruptions and will start to see things both frieghtening and of love (of humanity's failures and humanity's wonderful progress and strides). They are professionals who have been rigorously trained such as Pyscians (Pyschology is still fairly new to the system, but was introduced and used heavy marketing to become accepted by the medical community, you can check this for yorself. Their methodology Im not buying into it)). Dont know what or who puts occult symbols in business, but it is there.

      I just went to the doctor two days ago he checked everything said im fine... It's a feeling like my head feels like a ballon I don't no how to describe it.. It's not always a pain I do get pain though I'll have shooting throbbing pain... But when I don't have that pain it still feels like there's something wrong with my head. Like my head is heavy or something like that it's so hard to describe what I feel. It's just always an uncomfortable feeling like I don't feel normal like my self... I constantly think something is going to happen that something is wrong. I get this tingly feeling a lot. Then it moves from the front to the back the sides... An it's all day long it don't come an go.. Just sometimes it's more painful then other times.

      20 mins. ago I just had an episode where the air was expanding as if it was going to explode. Before, I would try and control and stop it, but today I am weak as I did not have much appetite, so I let it expand, and I told myself I am not afraid am too tired to be afraid. It expanded big air, and then contracted and it's pointing upwards, then it lifted the heaviness off my head. It was a reief, but I know this healing is not done and the madness is still there.When it completes, then I will have no guilt or shamefullness from my past. I carry guilt from my rape and assault and somehow it split my mind and I went into depression.

      Hey Stacey, My daughter is going through this exact thing now. She is 21 and is convinced she is dying. she has had a headache for 2 months now and the symptoms are exactly like what everyone here is describing.She keeps saying it is not anxiety, but i think that is what everyone with anxiety says. I don't know what to do to help her. She is convinced she needs to go to the emergency room over and over.
