omg, know that i know that i'm not the only one.. sometimes i feel like i'm gonig to have a anurism..It all started about 3 days ago. i get all this presure behind my eyes and in the back of my head, its so bad my eys can't focus.like i'm gonig to pass out or die or something. i calle dmy doc and she said it sounded like a sinus infection. I don;t have a runny nose but i do have alot of drainage in the back of my throat. Sometimes i wish i just could reach up in my nose and pull out what ever is causing the preasure....

I am reading these posts and I'm kinda shocked.  The various descriptions of what happened to me this past weekend, are quite similar.  What I don't understand is that I was so relaxed..no negative thoughts...hanging out with hubby watching SNL, and them BAM!   I've never had any sort of anxiety issue and there is no major stress in my life.  Then out of the blue I feel like my head is whirring and vibrating...cold sensation washed over my heard, shoulders and hands and then left me as quickly as it started.  I haven't had it since.  The doctor at Emergency room suggested that it might be an anxiety attack.  While the symptoms sound like it,  I find it hard to believe that this could have happened with no provocation and so out of the blue.  I'm very bewildered by it.  I don't really feel anxious about this,  moreso confused by it and as I said, bewildered.  So,  what do I do now?

i am 33 and have been struggling with anxiety for many years but the last couple of years i have been getting these strange head sensations prior to the feeling of panic sometimes it lasts for a couple of seconds sometimes a couple of hours sort of like a pressure and a spinning and a shaking inside my head nearly always accompanied by panic sensations i find it hard to believe that this is all anxiety and wish it would just go away.
