i know my balance seems to be off and im having massive headaches on my face next to my temples and around temple area for 6 months straight 24 hours a day.
 i take one clonozapam once a day and taking feverfew, b2, mag instead of headache meds for last 3 days just to see if it helps and drinking tons of water or at least it seems that way.
 I do alot better riding the bike at the gym then walking and my head pounds like crazy when doing it. Pretty funny though, im at my best lately about 3 hours before i fall asleep and that makes me not want to sleep so i have sleep trouble too.  All tests come back normal of course, and wow,
 Just as ive started typing this my left ear is now ringing twice as loud.

Sounds not unlike a migraine. They have a lot of weird effects. See andwes' "medical issue" post.

By the way, I have ringing in my ears, too. It's from playing in rock n' roll bands. It never really gets louder but I become much more sensitive to it when I'm anxious. I'm not sure if it's the same thing you experience but I thought I'd throw it out there.

Stress stress stress...I understand about the headaches and the walking on air part too (weird feeling I gotta say!)...and this all happens when I am doing the anxiety thing...sheesh!
Try and relax a little more, remember to breathe deeply, and try not to 'overthink' esp. at bedtime :-) easier said than done I know! lol

Just to give you all a laugh (which never hurts) - I've been posting on this site now for about a year and I can honestly say that in my life I've had EVERY SINGLE health issue people mention!  Maybe that's because I'm now 59 and have been dealing with health related anxiety since I was seven years old but there's never a post that I read that I can't say, "yup, I've had that."  Just now, reading your post about headaches, I saw where you mentioned ringing in the ears....well could I write a book on that one!  Even though I've had it on and off since I was young, it's gotten increasingly worse in the past ten years.  And you're right - it does seem to get worse when you're anxious - and since most of us are anxious all the time, the ringing is there all the time (at least for me).  Sometimes I'm able to ignore it and sometimes it justs drives me crazy.  A friend of mine who has severe anxiety and also has the ringing was diagnosed by her doctor with Meniere's disease (an inner ear disease) because she also suffered a frequent imbalance sensation (which I have alot myself).  So who knows - all I do know is that there's not much that anxiety can't manifest itelf in - every health symptom under the sun and I've had 'em all.  You'd think that by sitting here laughing at myself like I am right now would help me to finally get over this lifelong obsession but even though I can laugh at it at times, it still can come back with a vengeance and debilitate the hell out of me.  So I guess maybe it's a cross some of us have to bear - and if nothing else you young people can realize after listening to me that I've made it all these years and I'm still here - none of it killed me - made my life miserable at times - but there also have been lapses where I felt fine for a few years and was able to raise three wonderful (normal) boys and so far not be dying of anything more than what I THINK I have.  So hang in there and know that no matter HOW crazy you feel, no matter HOW many diseases you think you have, you WILL SURVIVE and you WILL GET BETTER.

read up about lightheadedness on the net which has many causes but I dont think it gives you headaches

try gentle rubbing of the area where it hurts

I get tension headaches a lot and the pain is located in my temples. The pain can sometimes make me feel a bit lightheaded. Stress and tension in my shoulder muscles causes the headaches I think.
