Around a year ago I woke up with this almost hangover feeling which did not go away. Since then I have had 24-7 head pressure/tension which can sometimes be unbearable along with neck and back stiffness that is also 24-7 (although if this was the only issue I would be sooooo happy), I have found that certain things can sometimes cause this horrendous life ruining sensation to get worse...
*Any sort of stress at all can make it unbearable
*How I start my day( depending on how I feel when I wake up can set it up for the whole day, deciding whether its going to be bearable or completely ruin my day and cause me not to be able to complete many tasks.
*Sometimes I can be just walking around a shop or supermarket and I feel almost drunk, which in turn can worsen symptoms.
*Reading can worsen symptoms.
*When I am Hungry
*When I am just out walking somewhere on my own (everyday I walk to the train station my head tension and pressure quickly escalates) and basically anything that causes any type of stress at all!
- That said I often suffer these symptoms doing absolutely anything from (trying to) relax in front of the TV to watching or playing sports.
I have thought anxiety but I don't get many of the other common symptoms that others do, for example I don't get nervous stomach or feel nervous at all really, I am not bothered about going anywhere in particular or anything like that. I feel comfortable in crowds or unfamiliar places. The only Issue is this awful head pressure that I can just not get rid of.
I have a few other symptoms like blocked ears, funny sensations in my jaw, jaw/ear clicking and generally feeling like I'm about 100 years old, my full body feels like it is falling to bits!
If anyone can help in anyway I would be forever grateful, this problem has got me to the lowest point I could have ever imagined being in. I feel like I am not myself anymore and I am just dragging myself through from day to day.
