Lately i have been struggling more and more - I now have this constant pressure in my head causing me to feel like i am going to pass out and as if my head is going to explode. Anybody else experience something like this?

Hope you all are well!

Yes I have dealt with this before also. I went to the doctor because migraines run in my family they said it was panic and anxiety. I wish you all the best and I hope that you feel better soon. Smile

That happens to me and usually after that I get the heart palpitations and sweaty palms. I need to pull my head back and crack my neck because I feel this horrible pressure and I feel as if I'm going to get a brain attack (if that exists).

Yes, I know exactly what you are talking about. I am so glad you mentioned it because I thought something was really wrong with me. I have gotten cat scans and everything and they didn't find anything, but I know how I feel. This, along with the anxiety, has stopped me from working and living a normal life.

I'm glad that you got it checked out and hope it gave you some peace of mind. Although, I am sorry that you are experiencing this from tension. Ahh, panic and the crazy things it does to us. I wish you all the best. Hang in there Smile

Honestly Shawna - nope it didn't give me any peace of mind. Ever since developing this dreadful disorder, i have become a little bit of a hypochondriac and am convinced i am dying of some incurable disease and the doctors keep misdiagnosing me - totally crazy and stupid i know, but i am working on overcoming this one day at a time!

I experience this sensation as well. I always think it is seasonal allergies, or when the air pressure changes before a big storm I get it. I didn't know it was an anxiety thing! Sometimes I feel really "out of it"!
