Am I about to have a ruptured brain aneurysm?
My whole body is tense with anxiety, and my mind feels almost paralyzed with fear. I've been having these strange headaches for a few months now, anxiously trying to ignore them ... but now the fear is overwhelming. I have an appointment to see a doctor next week, but I'm actually terrified I won't even live to see that day.

The headaches: They're very brief (a few seconds), sharp, jolt-like pains in my right temple area. They're not extraordinarily painful, only somewhat so, because they're so brief. They're more uncomfortable and startling than anything. They don't happen all the time. Maybe only a few times per day. But sometimes, if I'm lucky, they happen every two or three days. I went to the hospital last night (even though I wasn't in much pain), but the wait was going to be way too long, so I left.

Anyway, I've been panicking and crying, feeling as if I'm going to drop dead any minute now.

Should I be worried? Can I wait until my appointment next week?

I would be so grateful for any insight or advice.

Thank you.
