has anyone gotten head pressure/swelling feeling along with a burning "fire" feeling on the head or brain? I've gotten burning elsewhere on my body too...

I've been dealing with the same thing on and off for over 2 years.  I had an MRI and CT Scan done on my brain 2 years ago, both came back fine.  I am told anxiety can cause all of these strange feelings in your head.  I've had bloodwork done which all comes back fine.  I have developed bad anxiety from this over the past 2 years and am on medication for the anxiety.  The head pressure I was learning to deal with for awhile until I recently over the past month or 2 started getting the pressure and almost like stabbing in my head.  I have always worried that I had brain cancer or an aneurysm.  My neuro. and every other doctor told me nothing can change that fast and it would have showed up on my MRI's that I had 2 years ago.  I try not to focus on it so much, but it is so hard. You are not alone, I wish I knew how to control it or get rid of it.  My family tells me i need to relax when I sometimes feel I am and can't seem to understand why I still feel this way.  Know that you are not alone with the head pressure, I just wish I knew how we could get rid of it or what the heck caused it to come on.

Great supportive response for your first post. I wish I had the magical answer for both of you but all I can offer id support and it you feel you need another MRI, do be firm with your physician and ask for what you need.



Many holiday blessings to both of you.

Thanks Kitt,

My neuro. last time I spoke to him told me he would be sending me for another MRI on my brain even though he doesn't feel it is necessary.  I have been fighting with him for this for months.  Since my bloodwork has come back fine, I am sure it is nothing serious going on really inside my head.  I too have been on the anxietycentre.com website and the "head symptoms" are very similar to what I have been experiencing which really makes me think alot can be coming from my anxiety and that there really is nothing else seriously wrong with me.  Anxiety can bring on crazy symptoms, aches and pains that you would never think.  If I had known back 2 years ago what I know now about it all, maybe I wouldn't have reacted the way I did when this all started and maybe things would be different for me.  I have a 6 year old daughter and a wonderful husband and have lost 2 years of my life that I cannot take back all because of my anxiety.  My family means the world to me and I just want to go back to being the "ME" again.  I don't wish this on anyone, but anyone that is dealing with anxiety or a panic disorder is the only one that would understand what it is like for one to go through.  Any "normal" person just tells you to knock it off...it's actually very scary.

I'm so glad I found this forum!!!!!
I am 2 weeks+ postpartum with my second child and had Hyperemesis Gravidarum with this pregnancy. It has caused a sloo of issues, the number 1 being ANXIETY. I just recently experienced the burning skull sensation. I read in a previous post this could be due to meds. Yesterday was my first dose of meds and also the first time I had this sensation. Tonight I had it again just a few mins ago which prompted me to google it and I found this forum!!!

How often do you experience this??? I felt like my head was seriously on fire!! And of course that sent me into a panic and almost had an attack!!! What do u do to deal with this???
