Just starting today, I have noticed a small area on the right side of my head, just above the top of my ear, that is pressurized. It kind of feels like something dull poking my skull from the inside. It's not painful at's just a very localized pressure area. About a month ago I had been having breathing problems, and went to the emergency room. They did a chest x-ray, and checked my arterial blood gas levels. My chest x-ray was the best they'd seen all week, the nurse said, but my oxygen level was at 126, instead of the normal 100. They told me I was just hyperventilating, and sent me home. However, the breathing problem never went away, and now, a month later, it still occurs. My breathing pattern mimics the way I breathe when I am very full. It's shallow breathing, not particularly rapid, that is very unsatisfying. I breathe like this until I'm able to yawn, and then I feel comfortable again for a few minutes.

Could these symtoms be related? The only other thing I can think of is that I worked for about 20 hours straight last night, staring at a computer screen, to meet a deadline. Could this cause my painless headache?

Thank you so much for your help,
Emily (xemcats)
