dizzy/light headed/head pain/sensitivity..

Well this all started 4 months ago, start of february.  Was playing pc games like always (very addicted) was constantly on the pc for a year prior to these feelings.  One night I just all of a sudden started to feel dizzy and light headed I got cold rush over my body/shaking and I thought the worst was imminent.

I'm still here 4 months later but still worry as much as ever (is it a brain tumour or aneurysm)are just the thoughts I dont need but cant get rid of.  The doctor has since given me anti depressants(fluoxetine) but I dont want to be on them.

The constant dizzy/light headed feeling is gone but I get a few second spells of it sometimes, my head feels sensitive to touch, hair movement can sometimes feel different/discomfort (lol weird i know) cant wear hats because of it!  Weighted/heaviness at the top of my head, its the first thing I think of when I get up and the last thing I think of when I get to sleep!  Anyway I realise i worry too much but I cant get rid of the serious health doubts, even though it probably is just anxiety and the depression.  Maybe stress I don't know anymore.  

Also sometimes I feel my heart like jump out of my chest, then again im skinny so I probably feel every minute thing that goes on in my body and think the worst.

Hey there i have the same problems, my scal; feels really sensitive and strange, i have a heavyu feeling inside my head, like theres a big bubble in there it completely freakes me out. I have so many pains and worries, mostly about brain tumors and anyrisms. I guess were just gonna have to try and convince ourselves that were ok, easier said than done though hey!! I think i need to just stop being so scared of death.

Same here I am feeling the same. I have the creepy crawly feelings in my scalp. Pains in my head, near temples mainly. I feel horrible. I have had depression but had learned to live with it, now out of the blue I'v just developed these horrible headaches and sensations. GP said it is Anxiety symptoms. I do not feel reasured just worried sick that I have something that they will eventually find to late. I had a brain scan 18 months ago found nothing. But now that its back do I really have to have another brain scan in order to reasure myself. God someone help me...
