good morning to you all. i have been dealing with constant head pressure and dizziness for about a month and its actually the reason i found this site and signed up. i found and read alot of posts on this subject and noticed how similar the symptoms were from post to post. i decided to do some researching (google hehe) on what could be causing these annoying symptoms and i believe that most (or maybe all?) of us here may be dealing with tension headaches caused by neck, shoulder and upper back muscles that become tense from our anxiety. it does make sense considering that neck and back muscle tension is a very common symptom of generalized anxiety disorder....sometimes we dont even notice it. a person without anxiety may get these tension headaches during times of stress but they usually go away....but with us anxiety folk i believe our constant anxiety keeps our muscles tense all day (even when we sleep) which makes our headaches stick around..which causes us more anxiety..which in turn makes our muscles tense up...which..well you get the point. we may feel our neck and back muscles sore, tense, stiff, tired, and sometimes painful. i also found information on ways to treat these muscles that may help us finally find relief from these awful tension and pressure headaches. there are ways to massage the muscles to help ease the built up tension. the best way to learn these techniques is to read about them yourselves. i wont post any particular website since there are many..so instead i would suggest to just search on google or any other search engine for "tension/pressure headaches neck muscles". there are places you can go and have these muscles massaged..but there are also ways to do it yourself. most of these sites show you how. i figure i have nothing to lose so i will be trying some of these techniques myself tonight in hopes that i get some relief. i know it takes more than one time before i will see any real change but i will stick to it and will keep you all updated of my experience with this. i would also ask any of you reading this to try it and maybe let us now how things go with you. thanks and good luck
