Thread: Headaches

  1. #11

    Re: Headaches

    Does anyone have a sensation that there head is very full and heavy and feel its a headache but it doesnt hurt? Is that a symptom after suffering from anxiety for the past week.
    Also havent done much and been indoors most of the week.
    Appreciate feedback as like someone with health anxiety I feel it could be a tumour (because its painless) or something worse because I have a fear of sudden death.

    I think the sudden ice-pick headaches are the most unsettling! Just need to live as if they never happen and soon they will disperse and even stop occurring.

    Hi Meena,
    Stress does manifest itself in all sorts of strange ways, headache being one.
    But to err on caution, you should have it checked out.

    Are you taking any meds for your anxiety ? coz some of these too can have side effects like headaches etc.

    I have suffered from anx/dep for a fair time. Give yourself some time & TLC. Bereavement can be painfull and can leave many mental scars. Just don't take on too much and relax whenever you can. I found meditation useful when really stressed

    Re: Headaches

    Hi, I have been suffering from headaches for about 2 or 3 years now. I seem to have one most days for weeks at a time then they go away and I'm ok for a a few weeks then they come back. As well as having a constant headache I keep getting these sharp stabbing pains which last for a few seconds at a time then go away. These seem to be getting more frequent. Does anyone else experience these sharp stabbing pains? Docs put me on 10mg Nortryptelene which helped a little but I was still getting the headaches.

    It's very depressing. I go to bed with one hoping it will go away but then it's still there when I wake.

    I'm not sure the Doc takes me seriously. I know I suffer with stress and get anxious which explaines the headaches but what about these stabbing pains?

    How does everyone else cope with their headaches?

    Re: Headaches

    Def sounds like a tension headache to me. These can last for days, even years if left untreated. I have just been put onto Dosolupin (sp?) for anxiety and as a tryciclic it should help with tension headaches. Anybody else had success with these? Or TCA's as a whole?

    Exactly how mine feels - as if it is really heavy yet when laying down it goes away - been anxious for 8 weeks and could take a few weeks to go apparently. :(

    My head feels like this, not a very painful head ache more of a dull heavy feeling - this has been worse since I start ADs and I'm sure brought on by anxiety. I do get days where don't have but then can last for a couple of days.

    This may help (quote from website[if needs to be removed I will]):
    "Tension-type headache pain is often described as a constant pressure, as if the head were being squeezed in a vise. The pain is frequently bilateral which means it is present on both sides of the head at once. Tension-type headache pain is typically mild to moderate, but may be severe.

    Various precipitating factors may cause TTH in susceptible individuals.[3] One half of patients with TTH identify stress or hunger as a precipitating factor .
    • Stress - Usually occurs in the afternoon after long stressful work hours or after an exam
    • Sleep deprivation
    • Uncomfortable stressful position and/or bad posture
    • Irregular meal time (hunger)
    • Eyestrain
    • Caffeine withdrawal "
