What other stress symptoms do you get? My headaches been going away but a few weird feelings that go through my head not sharp quick pains....And now my neck and back are so tight on and off during the day that laying down or standing still it hurts...Feels strained..I think I create some of these symptoms from worrying that I might have like...Brain aneurysms...I started reading and now I feel like I could get it? What other kind of anxiety do you get and what helps you rid those fears

I know what u meen about the weird feelings in your head and I especially know what its like to worry non stop about an anurysm, alot of times stuff like that is hereditary. But I know what u meen about the weird feelings and pains in your head. I also get a stiff neck alot to. The only reason we worry about all this is because we have anxiety. Anyways if u wanna talk on messenger or somethin pm me

Mannnnn, I have these every single day without fail. I am currently on work experience here in uk before I break up for the summer. I have noticed that when I was working on trucks, and soing something practical, it makes me feel a little better because I am not constantly thinking about it, but it does not go completely. My headaches and head pains are the worst for me at the moment, it is not necessarily headaches today, I can feel my pulse in my head, almost like the blood is being squeezed through my head, and then I can feel it flowing all around my face. Its horrible, and guess what im worrying about now...? A blood clot that will lead onto an aneurysm...

Hypo do you ever get blacking of the vision when standing up too fast?
Like when you feel lightheaded and your vision goes black for a few seconds?
I think dizziness when getting up too fast is called postural hypotension
which is when your blood pressure can't adjust quickly enough to standing up...
I think it's normal if it happens occasionaly...Maybe it happens more often if you have anxiety, that seems to happen with me
