Just curious if anyone has ever asked their doctor why anxiety/stress can cause head symptoms? For instance, head pressure and stabbing/jolting pains?

Is it all from tense neck muscles?

I didn't think of asking my doctor about that and I don't go back for a few weeks.

Anyone know why?

Thanks, kitkat

kitkat,


It is not important to try and understand the physiology of the human body but it is important to remember that each of the anxiety symptoms you experience can be explained. Do not dwell on what you are feeling, instead, project yourself into more useful subjects, do something constructive, exercise, learn a skill or craft and escape the body trap.



Tension in the neck and shoulders can cause immense discomfort, migraine and numbness.



Take care,

Kitt

Hello, I have the same problems... the head pressure... i found out that it is cause by anxeity..because when i start to get nervous i start moving my jaws back and forth..not realizling it and it causes the head pressure...which used to freak me out alot and almost lead me to a pannic attack but now i notice when i do it and try to stop myself then its okay...and the stabbing pains i got those alot too which are also cause by anxeity..my dr. told me that a person with anxiety problems is more likely to notice the little pains that we normally would not notice...i dwelled and dwelled on them for the longest time until he told me that and now its not that bad...the head pressure is the worst though....i take xanax for panic attacks and it seems to work fine...i've tried all different kinds of anti-depressants and none of them seem to ever work they either end up making me sick or making my panic attacks worse...but anyways hope this helps and hope your anxeity gets better!turn

I have this anxiety since i started my treatment. I can't sleep at night. So I told my doctor to give me some meds so she gave me ativan. It helps a lot. It calms you down but it doesn't help you if you are depress. Now I'm taking some zoloft. But my doctor told it will take time to kick in. So Until now I take ativan for a reliefe. I don't ever get depress since I started my treatment chemo and radiation. I feel down then I keep on crying because its so hard. I have throat cancer until now I can't eat thru my mouth. Anxiety feels uncontralable. I always think i just hope I don't have this sickness. The healing it will take time.
