Hi I was wondering if you could help me. I have anxiety and panic and have been having weird headaches. It feels like someone pulling my hair or bugs crawling on my scalp. it feels tight. when i press on it some areas hurt and some dont. it also moves. one point in the day it could be at the back of my head and the next in the middle. its like i have a headband on. now its mainly on my right side and my ear hurts - not just the inside of my ear but im getting weird sensations on the outside too. any ideas? Ive been scared of an aneurysm. but i dnt think this is a migraine as i have no nausea, vomiting, etc. although noise has been bothering me. any advice please.
ps - also I am pregnant - 17 weeks.

ive been getting bad headaches lately my head will be sensitive to touch also like somone pulling on me. i was just reading about occipital neuralgia and it seems mine is related to arthritis in my neck, and the fact that i have a slight pinch nerve you can google occipital neuralgia to learn about it you may have something totally differernt just the pulling caught my eye

- Completed 3rd Prednisone taper on 4/13/07 - Tapered from early January through mid-April after being hospitalized from a bad flare (anemia, joint pain, I thought this must be what hell is like!). So far so good. Was third flareup.
- 7 Colazal/day, Men's GNC Multivitamin, Fish oil, Primal Defense Probiotics 2x daily (this stuff works!), Iron every other day
- Occassionally Flexeril and Vicodin for joint pain & headaches.
- If I flare again, i'll consider 6mp or Imuran
