Weird pain need help

Hey guys, so I have health anxiety quite bad, I'm on cetroplam and it has eased my anxiety a lot. But some days I still get panic attacks about my head and can't shake the fact I'm gonna just drop dead. So every day I have been feeling slightly dizzy, not like drunk dizzy or roller coaster dizzy, just a little off this happens almost constantly with a pressure feeling in my head and I panic myself into a complete state. Doctors have reassured me constantly there's nothing wrong. But I always feel this pressure on the side of my head. I don't have any pain like that hurts just that feeling someone's pushing against it. I'm so scared I'm going to die. Could this be a Tumor or something that's going to kill me. My neck has also been killing me and really aching on my side, I'm so scared I don't know if I'm going to drop any second. Can anxiety really do this? I also feel pressure in my nose and I keep constantly checking my head for lumps. I also always need the fan pointing at my face to calm me and stop this facial heat I get. Am I gonna die..

thanks posting, sounds like you're having a hard time right now, but take a few big deep breaths, hold them, slowly breathe out, try to use some relaxing techniques and that will help ease some of your anxiety.

don't be scared you're not going to die, your anxieties focusing on aches and the pains and coming up with the worst case scenario. Be kind to yourself, tell yourself you're gonna be okay and try and relax a little. And you will be okay take it easy.

Try and focus on the day when you're going to be feeling great, with all this behind you, living a good life that you deserve, a happy life, free from anxiety and full of joy.

You deserve a good life keep reminding yourself, you're not here to suffer, things will get better, but start by taking the first few steps to breathe deeply and look forward to a good life. Good luck take care


Yes, anxiety is a beast and can do that (and do it well, damn it!). I would have your sinuses checked at a sinus center as you do not need to be stuffed up to have an infection. Signs of a harmless, but annoying infection, (that needs a simple treatment) are dizziness, exhaustion, headache, and pressure. Most docs don't really know how to look for a treat an infection, but sinus center docs do. Hope this helps. Peace!

Those symptoms are exactly what I have constantly!!!!!! I honestly believe it's sinus related I don't know how to go about getting it checked in the UK


I do think my sinuses are bad it's been like this for 4 months I constantly get a nasal drip down my Throat and the pressure is always on one side :/ could well be sinus related
