Hi Kasey~:wave:

I used to have massage therapy before the headaches got this bad and you are right it did help a lot. I definitely tense my shoulders throughout the day. Mostly from anxiety!!
I find that just touching my muscles (such as shoulders) are so sore.
I also clench my teeth, and have some TMJ issues, so I am wondering if there is a connection to this as well. A few months ago I saw a physiatrist, that specializes in pain management and physical therapy. He mentioned that all these headaches are more tension type, especially the feeling of pressure behind my eyes, and my jaw makes some clicking, and clunking sounds upon opening and closing. He suggested medication but I was hesitant. I hate feeling spacey as it is and taking muscle relaxers and antidepressants I am sure will lead to more space!!:dizzy: I just worry about the vertigo end of it. It's really strange, I don't feel like I am spinning, I feel like I am floating, or falling, For example last night I was in the kitchen making dinner and I turned around quick to get something and I felt as if I was going to pass out for a
split second But I NEVER do Or DID, or I feel as if I am sinking, If that makes any sense???
And I also notice if I turn my head and then turn it back I feel an after effect of motion.. If that makes sense as well?? I know if I am having a very anxious/stressful day the symptoms become 100 times worse. I have had this now for 9 years on and off. I thought maybe it was a heart problem but I was sent a few years ago for all kinds of cardio test and everything came back normal. Then I thought inner ear :confused:
I do notice if I am sitting or standing I feel so much discomfort in my shoulders and neck almost like a pulling sensation. so maybe it is all related. And just about all my symptoms subside if I lay down. As if all the pressure in my shoulders and neck subside.
I really appreciate all the input and advice. I get really frustrated and scared at times feeling this way. Did you have the same type of dizzy feelings or were yours more a spinning? As for the headaches some days they aren't so bad just a constant pressure feeling and like I mentioned that pressure is relived when I lay down. And other days they are so bad all I want to do is sleep. I also do notice if I lean my head back all the way I can feel the tension!! Thanks again for any advice.. Boxerlover:angel:


Feelbad~ I thank you also for all the information you sent me as well.
I haven't had a brain Mri in years. When I mentioned it to My Dr. sometime ago she was hesitant at sending me saying my symptoms would be a lot worse if it was serious. At the current time I don't have insurance that would cover such a test, so yeah I guess I am going to have to wait on that one.
I had a physical less then 2 years ago while I was pregnant and everything seemed good then, even though I had these symptoms, but maybe you are right perhaps a simple blood test is needed. I started giving up on Dr's when they started to not take me serious and looked at me like am a nut case, said I am having anxiety and sent me on my way!!:dizzy: Just gets frustrating because I know what I am feeling is real!
As I mentioned to Kasey I am thinking there is a relationship between my TMJ and all this as well.. Thank You again for all your advice.. Boxerlover:angel:
