I am in almost the same boat as you sweetie. For the past few weeks I have had pressure in my right temple with some pain here and there and have only recently come to terms with the fact that it is more than likely NOT a brain aneurysm or blood clot or something of that nature.
- For one, usually speaking there will be no symptoms when one is forming.
- Two, when one 'leaks' (usually a few days before a rupture you will be in intense pain, like, worst-headache-of-your life.
- Three, generally speaking - when something like that is the cause of your pain it will not come and go. It will be more or less constant. This is true of brain tumor's also, when the symptoms occur they will not get better, they will usually not go away, they will be there to stay, and get worse.
- Four, if you've had it for as long as you say (two weeks) than you should rule out an clot or something like that because again... by the time it shows symptoms (if it does at all) it will present itself in a more severe manner.
I've come to the conclusion that for my situation I believe that tension in my shoulders/neck is what is causing the issue. As tension in the shoulders, neck, jaw, ect. can give you headaches, pressure, ect. For example - put your finger where your temple is and clench your jaw, can you feel the muscle tensing up? Even if you don't 'feel tense' you can still 'be tense' if that makes any sense! That holds especially true for us HA sufferers, while our minds are subconsciously racing about our issues, our body's get tense as we get anxious and that just becomes a vicious cycle.
I know I had a hard time (and still having a hard time) accepting that the symptoms I have are 'home-grown' but just give it some thought. Try relaxing yourself, do yoga, get a massage, rest up on the weekends, do things that you enjoy, get a cushion for your computer chair, and whenever you feel the pressure or the pain - don't panic! Try and be as calm as you are able and tell yourself, 'I am fine.' It will take some time, but it is worth it. Also if you have someone who understands and knows you suffer from HA, maybe talking to them about it sometimes can also help. I know that when I get stressed usually I start crying and talk to a friend or family member about my fear, they help be through the panic attack and than I feel a TON better.
