I used to get a headaches a few years back, they were daily headaches. I went to a Neuro and he couldn't find anything wrong. He did 1 CT scan, non contrast. Well I was put on a Blood Pressure medicine since I have hyperthyroid and my heart rate and BP was going up. I was weaned off of it 6 months later since I am stable and the pill was making me dizzy. Well it has been 1 month of hell since then. I went through depression some days, and panic most days. Now I wake up feeling like there is a weight sitting on my head. Pressure constantly. The top of my neck hurts sooo bad. I feel like there is a rubber band around the middle of my head. I can feel my heart beat in my head, and when I stand it gets soooo bad. Puslating and hurting. I have this weird feeling like I am offbalance....Not dizzy, just not clear headed almost like medicine head without the medicine 24/7. This is making me extremely worried. I went to the Hospital, I have no insurance and they gave me a CT scan, non contrast and said it was negative and that I just have anxiety. Okay, well I am getting the anxiety from feeling this way all the time!!! Can a migraine headache be all the time? I mean the pain goes away at times, but I feel the pressure still and the weird visual feeling. Last night it was so bad when I was driving home, that for a second I had no clue where I was when I was driving. Then it just all came back to me. Also, lights bother me and noises. I am waiting for insurance to kick in, but has yet to come :( Oh also, I am a 24 y/o female, who up until now was very active with sports and gym 4 nights a week.

Thank you,

Hi Candi24,

Welcome to Healing Well. I think you need to go back to the Neuro and tell him what has been happening! Keep a diary of your headaches, stating the times they increase and how long for! Using a pain scale of 0 - 10, 0 being pain free and 10 being the worst pain that you could ever imagine, keep a note of the pain number at it's peak and how long it is there for. This will be proof for the Neuro that it is not just anxiety and that the headaches are the cause of your anxiety as you say!!!

It is possible to have migraine all the time but it is also possible for anxiety to affect your migraine so it feels like it is all the time, what we need to do here is to find the difference! Recording all of this can be quite a task but it will be evidence that will help a decent Neuro figure out what is going on! You need to record the off balance sensations and any other symptom too!

Please keep in touch and let us know how you get on. Take care
