Weird Head Feelings

Posted , 4 users are following.

For the last like two weeks my head has been feeling constantly groggy and doesn't feel right. Sometime's I'll get a slight headache but my head normally doesnt hurt. It just feels like a ton of pressure mixed with being foggy. I don't know if this is from anxiety or what, and I'm starting to get freaked out. I've been to the doctors several times for issues and it turned out to be anxiety (I've had several blood tests, ECG's, Ultrasounds, lung exams, etc.) But my head feels CONSTANTLY like this and I really don't want to make my mom have to pay for an MRI if it's just anxiety. Does anyone else have this pressure/ fogginess constantly?

    Yes. Fog and head pressure are anxiety symptoms. They occur because of prolonged stress on your system from anxiety itself. Hold off on the MRI until you address your anxiety. If it was a brain thing you would have neurological symptoms or worsening ones. Anything else radical would show on your blood work. You can however check your eyes at an opthalmologist. Perhaps your eyes are straining. Easily fixed if so. All the best.

      Afterthought...Sinus congestion can cause head pressure too. Both ears and nose checks will be cheaper than MRI, which you dont likely need, if you want to cover those bases. But do address your anxiety if these come back clear.

      I got my eyes checked around 3 months ago and they say I should lay off on the electronics until I can get special lenses in my glasses. Every time I go to see the doctor he says my nose tissues is inflamed but he hasn't said anything serious about it. He says my ears look healthy too. I seriously think it has to do with the season change where I live!
