    Hello stephx , I get those same head sensations and pains myself and the freak me out alos , I get scalp burning sensations , sharp shooting pains near me temples , I get soreness in certain areas of my head , tingling sensations , etc and it weirds me out ,.I get so scared it sends me into a panic attack. Its super scary , sometimes I think its a seizure or a tumor or bleeding brain but I've been checked out , I've had MRIs and everything and my brain and head are normal according to the neurologist, this really sucks

    I've had those neck problems like that too. Make sure you're not sitting up without supporting your neck. It scared me too. My neck would hurt me so bad it would go up the back of my neck and on the top of my head and sometimes down my right shoulder and arm. I finally figured out it was from the way I was sitting and then when my anxiety gets really high those muscles would tense up and cause pain. I would also get ear pain that was coming from my jaw (TMJ).

      Hi Tanya , yes ive experienced that as well , my neck had gotten so tensed and painful that at one point I could even carry my pocket book , and the pain from my neck went up the back of my head to the top of my head , it almost felt like my muscles were pulling and tight and like a tight band was around my head as well , these head sensations are the worst and the scariest

      Yes they are. One or two times it went all the way down my spine. I had to get in the bed and lay flat and support my head and neck. I ended up having to take a lorazepam because I knew it was tension and I was getting nauseous. That finally knocked it out
