    Yeah, I get that, and it moves around different parts of my head. I clench my teeth too which doesn't help! It's definitely part of anxiety

    Hi muffer are you getting pain behind your eyes ? Is your eye sight being affected. Just for reassurance like me , I had headaches for 2 full weeks straight but they put it down to my age and lack of fluids so went on a fluids course throughout the days and it got better. My pain is not localised at all. I would see your GP Just for reassurance as they might shine a torch into your eye to check into your eye for a more serious condition such as a tumour. I also got told to go for a eye test as my eyes were being affected to. But no swelling at the back of my eyes. I have rescheduled for today so wish me luck .

      Yes I went to my gp she looked in my eyes and did some reflex tests etc.....I do get pain round my eyes but I think that's due to not wearing my glasses as much as I should

    it happens to me sometimes pressure in my head im also taking propranolol cuz my blood tension usually gets high when im too anxiuos or have a panic attack. Try to keep your mind busy doing something else to reduce your anxiety.

    Yes I suffer from these when my anxiety is at its highest.  The headaches linger even after the anxiety has settled.  Take some thing for the headaches and keep yourself busy doing something to calm the anxiety.  Coloring with adult coloring books, meditating, or doing something you take alot of pleasure in.  Remind yourself that it is your anxiety. Medications are not completely make  us fearless. They are to assist with chemical imbalances, calm us enought to find ways of coping with our anxiety. Good luck.
