For about 5 months now everyday it comes and goes... I get head pressure that gets so intense it makes me think I am going to have a seizure. Which raises anxiety... and the awesome cycle continues. Been doing this since I was 8 years old and I am 22 now.
I know this is mental related and it's not a tumor and if it is I guess it is. I don't care much anymore. I been horribly depressed.
It would be so nice for this head pressure to go away though. It's like my head has been pumped full of air. It doesn't hurt... It's like a vice around the top of my brain. It feels like there is fluid in my brain and ears and it gets a little hard to hear. It triggers the fight or flight because it feels extremely scary. I have never been to a neurologist. I have to see a cardiologist on the 21st though.
I am not really anxious... but I know subconsciously I am...
I am also withdrawing from xanax right now. I am going off slow... but maybe that is some of it.
One thing i notice is my posture sitting at chairs suck too... and I am always clinching my jaw or biting my shirt. Like if i am bored i will lift the top of my shirt up and start biting it?
I don't understand... Can doing this with your jaw cause this? This feeling makes me very lightheaded.
I am also a chronic hyperventilator so that doesn't help. Is there anything that eases this feeling? It's not a headache... it's like my head is full of water or air or fluid and I get dizzy. It sometimes is around my temple area but most of the time the top of my head all around my brain. it SUCKS.
It kinda goes away if i chew gum and watch tv... but then always comes back. I get this like 4 times a day for 30 mins or more. One night it was so bad I had to sleep it off. It was gone the next morning.
Idk what to do.
also.. my back muscles in my shoulder area are SUPER tight and a little irritated if I touch them it hurts a bit.
