  • You are not alone, and help is everywhere. God is with you.

  • Do you feel better wen you go out ?it's juss every time I get up and go out side I feel like alil presser in my head going down and it scares me πŸ˜”

  • It goes away when I ignore it lol

  • Staying indoors makes the feeling worse,..try to get out more,the feeling of open space above your head will make you feel a bit better.x

  • Really il try It juss one-time i tried driving around the block and I had the feeling in my head and I got scared but sometimes I think I should walk around outside see what happens I just don't want to faint or pass out because the heat does make my head worse idk why .but ima try and walk around when it gets cold .

  • That's how mine started when I was your age...I still get that uncomfortable tingle. It is anxiety. All my scans come back normal too. Try to stay calm And embrace it...you can do this girlie. I am now 31 and am again experiencing it. Don't be scared. 😚

  • Is it like migraines will it go away soon ?

  • For me it's a mixture...sometimes its just anxiety and worry and nerves and sometimes it's regular headaches or migraines. I use chamomile tea nice and warm...it is soothing. Find ways to calm yourself it helps.

  • Yes exactly I feel like it my nerve on the left side of my head and yea I do panic alil sometimes but I tell myself to stay calm and sometime it works but I still get that pinch feeling on the left side of my head I should try that tea.hopfully it works for me too .

  • I get that same feeling on the left side also. I know it's uncomfortable, it still gets to me sometimes, but I do better now at ignoring it. πŸ™„πŸ˜Š It will get better. 😚

  • Thank you very much I hope I get like you and try to ignore it and feel better I'm glad to hear I'm not alone in this I just wanna go out again like I use to and feel comfortable.

  • You are definitely not alone. I get so many weird uncomfortable symptoms its hard to keep up with so I ignore it best I can. All my blood work and doctors visits come back healthy. You can beat this. I mean I still struggle, don't get me wrong, but I don't let it eat me up the way it used to. Plus I pray and if needed I cry out the frustration. I have faith in ya. Don't ever lose hope. You WILL have your life back. 😊

  • I can't tell you when it'll go away, but I can say, for sure, the more you learn to recognize it as anxiety, it won't scare you as much.

  • H Vannessa

    Before this started, did you take any antibiotics? Some of them can cause this as a delayed reaction. I had that happen.

  • Well it happen because I had smoke some reqqi but it felt like it messed up some in my head like it hit my nerve and after that it has messed me up .i smoke a lot be for but this never happened.but rn I'm just tryna ignore it . It's still hard to go out and be up but I'm trying

  • Yes it's a tendion headache I have that for the past days . I had ct and MRI all good . I just pray and wait for it to change

  • Poor you. I have similar been going on two years I haven't head scans but doc has told me it's anxiety im on propanalol but only thing I feel anxious about is the symptoms lol.. Meditation calms.you but for me didn't stop or improve the tension in the head. you could try bowens treatment its a form of pressure point treatment maybe worth a try for you. I've tried one treatment seemed good but then me car broke.down and I.had a hell of day so am gona go back.

  • Yea me too the symptoms is what bothers me

  • Okay so I've located the source of the tension that causes the headache and lightheaded feeling it's right at the base of the skull where I've researched is 4 small muscle groups that connected between the 1st an 2nd vertibrae. So what do I do now though as this sounds bang on the money... Any advice

  • Not sure ! I have it today please advise me also

  • If I find something will defo let you now

  • Hi rjcv3, Now that you understand where it's coming from, you have your doctor refer you to physical therapy for "myofascial release" therapy. The therapist will use heat therapy as well as Acupressure Points. You will actually feel the release of stress and tightness at the base of the skull as she does this. It's a wonderful non invasive technique which helps to reduce the tension headache. Hope this helps.

  • Will ask thank you
