After 4 different attempts with the doctors over this head pain, he finally is referring me to a neurologist. I’m happy but intensely scared at the same time. I’m so scared to find out something is really wrong. This is one vicious cycle and I just can’t seem to get out of this funk.
I also have not slept well in over a month. I just can’t seem to stay asleep. I had a horrible dream last night that I had a brain scan and they found something bad and that there was really nothing I could do about it. I’m so terrified. I want to be around for my kids and see them grow and watch them get married and be around for as long as possible and these intrusive thoughts have me convinced I will find out horrible news.

I went through head numbness and this strange pain a year ago. I was convinced something was going on. Anxiety took over and I couldn’t take it anymore, went to ER and had a scan. Everything came back normal; all I got was exposed to radiation from the scan.
I’m sure you’re fine. ⭐

What kind of pain did you have?? This pain has lasted over a month. Some days it’s super bad others it’s just an annoyance more then anything

Mine was months. And I still have it to this day. It comes for a while and then it goes.
It felt like pins and needles on one side of my skull face and also felt like air was going through my head and then like a. throbbing pain. It was strange
