I have been getting this very bad headache for days and I'm afraid that im gonna pass out. I worry about it constantly, and I also have anxiety on top of that. I am terrified I will pass out, even though I have done it quite a few times in my lifetime so far. Its just this underlying fear, and I can't get rid of it. I am scared to go outside, let alone go food shopping, or anything away from my house (comfort zone). I am trying to manage my anxiety at the same time, but these head pains (pressure in the back of my head) is making it 10 times harder. I am always scared, and fearful of something happening to me in front of other people, and I am scared to drive too now. I take Paxil CR for my anxiety, and Tylenol for the pressure, as well visit the chiropractor. That does seem to help a bit, but not to where I can go for one complete day without the pressure. Can anyone suggest something that worked for you if you have had tension head pain before? Thanks.

I'm sorry that you're having such a hard time.  This probably doesn't help you too much, but I have the same fears.  I've passed out several times and it seems like I always manage to get hurt when I do it, i.e. hitting my head on something, falling on corners or something sharp, etc... The worse my headaches get, the more afraid I become.  I haven't even learned how to drive because I'm terrified that I'll pass out behind the wheel.
 
You said that you see a chiropractor; have you ever tried massage therapy, accupuncture or accupressure?
