Hey everyone,

Last Wednesday night we had a thunderstorm and my son woke me up to come in and lay down with him. Well, a big clap of thunder came and he shot his arm over while it was in a fist and punched me right in the temple! He's 9 so it wasn't a weak punch either. Anyway, I went back to sleep but the next day got a migraine which isn't all that unusual for me since I get them, but of course it triggered intense fear that I had an internal brain bleed and something was wrong with my head. I had a panic attack that night and felt tired, but otherwise alright. Ever since then my head has felt off though and I'm pretty sure it's because I'm still so anxious about having an internal bleeding problem from getting hit. For the past two days I've had a sore scalp right on the upper back center of my head and it hurts when I touch it or move my hair. I also feel a little off balance and am very tired. I just feel off or weird or something. I've had all these feelings before I think, but I don't remember them all being together. My palpitations are still acting up so that certainly isn't helping the situation any either sad I don't want to go to the ER if I don't have to and I just had an MRI and MRA about a year or two ago and my neuro said I was perfectly fine and I also called my family doctor the night after I got hit in the head and the nurse said that I shouldn't worry about it. I also forgot to mention that the CRNP at the school I work at gave me a complete neuro test on Thursday and she said I passed with flying colors. Could all these symptoms just be from stress and anxiety? I've had a really hard time this month I feel like and I'm getting down and frustrated. I'm so sick and tired of worrying all the time over things that other people wouldn't think twice about!! Any help would be great. Thank you!

Hi AW,

This is from our Resource Guide...the full link is there, (anxietycentre) this is just an excerpt that I thought might be helpful to you...

I hope that this helps you to feel better and have faith that it is anxiety related and will pass.:)

Am I missing the excerpt? I don't see anything other than what's in your signature?

Yes, I see it now, thank you :-) Some of those symptoms sound like me. I guess it's just hard to relax and not hyper focus on every single little sensation and dwell on it being something serious. It's such a vicious cycle and so hard to get out of once the wheel has started turning.

I've been on the phone with my aunt and multi tasking for the past hour and I still have the pressure in my head and the fatigue. You'd think that would have taken my mind off of it, but nope, not me. I'm constantly thinking of it in the back of my mind. It's so so frustrating!! I'm on anxiety overload lately and looking waaaayyy to much into things I suppose.

Maybe try another tactic? Rather than trying to distract yourself, perhaps slowing down and doing some relaxation and breathing exercises for awhile will help?

Keep telling yourself...'I am okay, this is just anxiety making me feel these symptoms.'

Try to have a good restful Sunday...I will check in later...let us know how you are doing soon:)
