I'm 19 years old and in my first year old college, recently I have become incredibly anxious due to pains I am getting in my head.
The pains started during the Summer, I was in bed one night and the back right side of my head felt like it was being pricked with a pin-I was more worried about chest pains at that time as I had been in the hospital emergency department multiple times that Summer with chest pains-all ECG, blood tests and x rays came back clear which calmed me down about the chest pains but then I started worrying about the head pains.
As months went by I realised that I was getting pinpoint pains in the same spot on the top of the back right of my head. One day about 3 months ago I got a horrible throbbing headache in the same spot while sitting in my law class and had to leave college for the day. I visited my GP and he said it is anxiety but I realised I was losing my trust for him and after seeing him I was still worried. He precribed me Lyrica but after a few days I started getting stinging pains down my arms and head-so I asked to stop taking them
In the last two months I have constant scalp tenderness around the back right side of my head, along with 1/2 second pains in the same area, my ears have been ringing on and off for about 5 seconds at a time, I get pressure in the area when I bend over or stand up, along with jaw pain on the right side and I have constant neck pain when looking down.
Does anyone have any similar experiences with these pains because I have been so afraid of what it could be for a while now? Some nights I'm even too afraid to sleep
