Head feels like it’s going to burst

I feel so stressed and am having thoughts which I cannot get out of my head. I had PTSD about 5 years ago and since then have been taking just one Pericyazine at night and over time have felt pretty good. Recently though I get anxious about something and I just keep going over and over in my mind about it. I had some Mindfulness exercises which used to help but they are not helping now. I am trying to relax, going on a bike ride every day and eating quite well. I don’t take any other medication for anxiety.

I spend ages trying to get to sleep at night but once I am asleep I am OK till the morning.

During the day I can be feeling OK then suddenly negative thoughts Pop into my head. I try to push them away but they just stay there until I feel like my head is going to burst open.

I hope somebody On here can offer some advice or relate to how I feel. Thanks

I’ve had days like this. I will be having a great day and then out of nowhere comes some kind of feeling that I’ve been worried about or some kind of new symptom, and that’s the end of my rationality for the day. As far as feeling like my head is going to explode, I’ve given myself a stress headache before that made me feel that way. Ibuprofen never touched it.

Thank you for replying Mandy. I seem like there is always something in my life for me to worry and be anxious about. It’s tiring me out. I maybe didn’t explain how I feel very well but it’s just like a bursting feeling rather than a headache. I used to get migraines when I was younger and they were terrible but I haven't had them for many years now. it’s different to that.

Hmmm....I’m wondering, could it be your blood pressure making your head feel weird?

No definitely not Mandy. My GP always says my blood pressure is perfect! Hemonce said “you have the BP of a 16 year old.” Which cheered me up no end!
