Scared I'm having an aneurysm, horrible pain in head

I really haven't been feeling good this past week in many ways. Haven't been able to sleep either. Last night I actually did sleep, but this morning when I woke up I felt really weak and unwell. My arms especially felt weak. When I moved them they would start shaking a little. My heart was already pounding even though I'd just woken up (my heart's been pounding all week) and I was sweating. Been having pins and needles in different places.

I've felt weird in the head all morning. My mind feels very fuzzy and out of it and strange, and I've been dizzy. About 20 minutes ago now I suddenly got this horrible, stabbing, shooting pain in one spot in my head. It has been coming and going ever since. When it comes, the pain is so bad and intense, it's almost unbearable. I start sweating whenever I feel it, but I don't know if it's just because I'm scared. It's only in one spot on my head- the top right.

I'm genuinely terrified that these are my last moments, that I'm about to have an aneurysm and die. Also sorry if I'm not making sense or if my wording is strange. Like I said, my mind is very fuzzy.

I did some googling and I'm thinking that what I had was an "ice pick headache". Seems to match my symptoms.
