hello, I am new to this so I have decided to try it out.
I am currently having/been having these symptoms for around 2 months. I have been to the doctor once anad ER twice. The first time at the doctor they told me they thought I was having an anxiety attack, the ER said the same and referred me to an anxiety doctor. The second trip to the ER went a little differently, because for once this doctor listened to me and heard me out. The other doctors jumped to the whole anxiety attack thing without even really asking me any questions. I scheduled an appointment with my primary care doctor and am trying to get refered to a neruologist but I know it will probably take months to get an appointment, which has ultimately led me to this forum because I would like some answers. I have read other peoples forum and even though some symptoms are compatible nothing is precise and I am a precise person, my main symptoms are as follows:
-throbbing pains in the back or side of head
-numbness in the back of head/top of neck area
-throbbing pain that sometimes feels like its shooting so deep it hits inside my jaw bone
-head pressure, so bad my ears pop and my head feels like its going to explode
-pins and needles feeling on the top of my head
-sometimes the numbing feeling will be parallel to a burning sensation
-difficulty/not able to swallow
-feel disoriented and out of body, like i am going to pass out
-my right hand will go completely numb
-my head will feel like its super heavy then feel like its floating and weightless
these symptoms will last anywhere from an hour to 6 or 7 hours coming and going. when they hit i try to make myself sleep, thats the only time i forget about it and dont get scared from it. when these symptoms start I get in my head that I am going to die, just fall over dead. I am so scared of dying that I start to freak out, heart races, not able to breathe, intense feelings of fear, crying, chest gets tight and have chest pain, even more disoriented and out of body than before. This i feel like is an anxiety attack, but I feel like I am throwing myself into them and can't control once my fear hits. I think this is where I am getting misdiagnosed also.
I am 21 years old. Perfectly healthy, eat right and get moderate excerise. My CT Scan was norrmal and my blood work was normal. If anyone can help me on whether all of this is anxiety or an actual migraine or some time of worse neurological probem I would greatly appreciate it.
