So I've been having these head pressure moments, when the back of my neck, head and back gets tight, like a balloon being blown up. I get lightheaded, blurry vision and my anxiety sets in. I do have ulnar nerve problems and trape muscle strain but I'm not sure if that's what's leading to it. I can't get the proper care cause I just started my job and my insurance isn't active yet. Only Valium work or benadryl so I'm not sure if its sinus or the actual nerve.

Well both meds you mention relax you.

Sounds like you get tense prior to the pain. Until your insurance kicks in try some relaxing exercises such as controlled breathing; sitting, walking meditation; gentle stretching yoga.

If the pain worsens, go to your closest ER.
