Is the agitation and restless feeling in my head due to Anxiety?

Edited , 4 users are following.

I've always found it hard to come to terms with the fact that anxiety can have such a physical effect on your body, which is probably why I'm always looking for another answer.

For nearly a year I had been having constant tension head aches, but after a duo of cutting out caffiene, and taking a nasal spray for suspected sinuses, this has somewhat died down.

However now I feel like I am suffering more. I have a constant feeling of agitation and restlessness, which feels like it stems from the back of my head/top of my spine. It really effects my day to day life, making it impossible to concentrate in my uni lectures, and I've had to stop working as I can't focus on anything!

Although I was recently prescribed glasses, I feel that my eye sight is effected in some way, as looking at objects in the distance is an impossible task, I keep having the urge to look away, as if I just can't focus on anything for any longer.

Although I feel like I am a social person, and will gladly put myself in the spotlight, the doctors told me I could possibly have a form of anxiety, and these effects are because of this. I am relatively stress free and have little to worry about, what is causing this?

I have recently tried Co Codemal which really helps with these problems, but of course this is only a short term relief and I need something to help on a more permanent basis.

But if history, if had a few knocks and neck injuries due to multiple rugby knocks and a car crash. I still lead a very active life style playing sport about 3 to 4 times a week, although it is a challenge to play whilst feeling like this.

    Joe --Have you every had an mri of your head?  Do you think you have had a concussion since your an active person? Sometimes head injurys get overlooked maybe it is worth getting checked out.  Good luck.

      Thank for relying. I have had an MRI and blood tests and they all came back fine.

      True I do have a few knocks to the end, but nothing I would consider hard enough to cause concussion

      Apart from blood pressure being higher than normal (more than likely due to me stressing about it) in physically fit, just this feeling won't go away.

      I'm going to try some tablets such as magnesium and vitamin B
