Pressure feeling on the back and sides of my head

Hi. Does anyone else ever suffer pressure feeling on the back and sides of their head? I feel like I can't even keep my head up sometimes because the pressure is that bad. I'm scared incase this is something serious it feels as if something is about to burst in my brain it's horrible.

Hi there , I too feel pressure in my head. I have a lot of anxiety at moment for past few months and I think it's to do with this. I try to meditate to help or if it turns into a headache, I take painkillers. Have you been under stress or anxious, have you been to get it checked out?

I don't feel like I have been under any stress but you never know anymore!! No but I think I might go to the doctors and just ask him about it. If you're feeling the same it might just be anxiety

Always best if you feel you need to get it checked out. I'm trying to deal with it I've had it for 2 months. Hope it will ease with time.

I also get the head pressure. Behind my eyes, my temples, and at my neck. The more I worry about it the more the pressure builds. It feels like my head will just burst. It's almost like my head is contracting. I talked it over with my therapist and she said it's definitely anxiety headaches. I hope you can get some relief!
