Yes. I've had a dull headache for the past month in the same spot on my forehead. It's been emotionally debilitating for me. I wake up and think about it first thing and then it gets worse. I dwell on it and think about terrible things that could be causing it. It is hard this time of year for me especially. I don't remember the last time I've had anxiety over a health issue this bad, and I promise you I have convinced myself that I have just about every disease Google matches up with my symptoms. You are not alone.

I get those too but mine come from sinus pressure. You might want to look into that. No worries and nothing life threatening. I have severe hay fever all 4 seasons.

You guys are fully aware that these are all symptoms of anxiety. My symptoms have gone as far as my tongue going numb. You cannot allow your mind to take over because that can take you to the darkest of places. The sooner you realize this the better you Will feel. If you spend the most of your time dwelling on every little thing it will consume you. Try living your life and do things that will keep your mind busy, go out with friends, take up a hobby and most importantly read up on your disease and not the symptoms. The more you know, the better you will feel. Guaranteed. Anxiety is your mind producing adrenaline for no apparent reason. That is why we begin freaking out. Notice that it's the same feeling if your going to ride a roller coaster. It's your minds reaction to fear. You just have to learn how to manage that. Our bodies are constantly doing things and you are hyper aware of everything so every internal body movement freaks you out. I know I've been there. Headaches, body aches, sweating, heart palpitations, numbness. These are all normal things the body will do in reaction to your fears. Except it, cope and move forward. Most importantly know that you are not alone. We are all here for each other. Im here. IM me if you need to talk.

Hi erribr, I was wondering how you were getting on, I remember you had an appointment with a cardiologist. Were you getting the irregular heart beats the day you saw him? It's very reassuring that you had an echogram and he said your heart looks fine but what did he say about your irregular heartbeats which was the thing causing you so much worry. When you last posted they weren't just now and then they were almost full time I think. Didn't he suggest anything to make the heart beats more regular?

The chest pain must be muscular tension caused by anxiety as all the tests rule anything else out. But what did he suggest about the flutters?

Yes, definitely yes. The headaches, the constant daily throat flutters that have me taking my pulse several times a day. The fear of death, a heart attack. I have had so many tests. Blood tests, ekg, ECG just like you. Yet I feel that my doctor missed something. I feel like a headache will lead to aneurysm. And Im afraid to tell my doctor what my thoughts are because Im afraid of what will come next. I get it. I always think the same, if these flutters can just stop.

Yes I get a dull headache and tight band around my head. Also I get pins and needles in the top of my head. I've had 4 ECGS and my heart is fine too apparently despite chest pains and palpitations. It's still hard not to be anxious though isn't it.

Its definitly caused by anxiety. Just had it the other day for a couple days and made my anxiety elevate big time. Im still a bit anxious but I am trying to not give it much attention which does help. You need to give yourself some time to be happy and calm. Don not try to pay attention to it so much and make sure your breathing is from your stomach area and not your chest. breath slow and deep. Think here and now. Dont let it ruin your days. Trust me, many of us going through this and your not alone. It will subside eventually but dont put any timelines on it. U will be good!
