Pressure in head and over-worrying

User Profile
I am a 43 y.o. male. Had extremely stresful situation 2 years ago. I have terrible pressure in my head, plus my hands sweat and are cold and fingertips are sticky. I am on Paxil, abilify. I cant sleep either. There are thoughts that come to my head against my will. I also tend to over-worry. I just feel horrible. What is wrong? Is it possible that anxiety be so high? If its anxiety only? Would Klonopin help?
