headache is making ne anxious

I've been dealing with a "headache" for over a week now went to the doc and I have a sinus infection. my symptoms include headache, pressure, temple pain, vision disturbance, pressure being eyes and cheekbones, neck pain,and ears feel plugged up. all of these are causing me to be in a state of panic. because of this awful health anxiety I'm thinking the worst.i have not felt this much anxiety in so long. I'm trying to tell myself that it is just an infection and this to shall pass, but I'm having a hard time. any advice or words of wisdom is greatly appreciated.

Be still my heart! All of your symptoms are quite normal for a sinus infection. These infections are quite common and can improve with surgery or chiropractor care if they are chronic. I have all of your symptoms, minus the infection. When weird things happen to your body, it can be very scary. I see you are a Christian. Perhaps my advice comes from Isaiah 37, be still and patient, Jesus loves you and will fight for you. Other verses to help you, 2Timothy1:7, Psalm 118:6-7, Isaiah 35:4, Isaiah 41:10, Romans 8:15, Psalm 46:1, and Exodus 14:14.

I will pray for you!

Ajrea2, I had this many years ago: blocked sinuses can indeed cause bad headaches and the other symptoms you mention, I just took paracetamol 3 times a day, it works wonders with the headaches. It took a few weeks for the infected sinuses to resolve.

No need for you to get anxious, get plenty of rest and keep taking the painkillers and before long it will start to clear up: one week is not long enough to shake off a sinus infection. You're going to be fine, just give it a little time.
