yes there are pressure points...and they're easy enough to find on your own. the ones that work best for me are above my left ear, in between my eyes...above my left eye in the middle of my eyebrow...and on the left bottom side of the base of my skull. i found them simply by trial and error and you can do the same...it may be that different ones work better for you.
and yes...pressure in the head is often associated with anxiety...and it's an extremely annoying symptom at that
Thanks, sometimes i feel like a hypochondriac, but these symptoms are really physical its hard not not to over think them. I always think its something worse than what it is, and i feel a little crazy lol.
Anxiety *****. I hate it, I'm going to a therapist, and it really does help. he might [rescribe adderal, which helps. just tough it out and be strong :)
Yeah i start therapy next Tuesday and i think it will be really good, although my family isn't very supportive because they think I'm too young to be going through this. But looking back on things that's happened to me i have always had this in some way, and i think it just now turned more prominent. I probably needed help with it a long time ago. Thank you for your advise, I'm working really hard with this, and it's good to know that i have some people who know what I'm going through and can relate to me. :)
no problem what so ever. at first my family wasn't so supportive either, but then I started to miss school, and I finally said, I don't have to take this. your therapist might prescribe an anti-anxeity medacation, so don't be surprised. :)
Is pressure worse when you are laying on the back of your head? The pressure could be due to some nerves passing between the suboccipital triangle resulting in pressure in your scalp, forehead and even sinus. I am actually suffering from this.
Try to find some trigger points in the suboccipital region ( back of the head when you head meets your skull and a it under ) try to find spots that will trigger weird pressure sensation on the bridge of your nose, that would be due to the nerves close to the suboccipital triangle. Even splenius spasm can cause the suboccipital triangle to press against the nerve and lemme tell you stress and anxiety is a trigger to the neck becomeming tight resulting in compressing the nerves that ends up giving you pressure sensation in your forehead and bridge of the nose.
''It has been estimated that greater than 80 % of headaches are related to “ stress ” . This can refer to both physical ( poor posture, joint dysfunction, etc ) and psychological stressors. No matter which type of stress is involved, the events leading to the onset of headache pain are the same. Several of the nerves that exit the highest portion of the neck loop back to travel over the top of the head to the forehead. These nerves pass through a triangle of muscles called the suboccipital ( ''bellow the skull'' ) triangle of muscles at the base of the neck become irritated ( due to either physical strain or emotional stress ), they tend to tighten impinging the nerves passing through the triangle. This can create headache pain and pressure at the temple, forehead, bridge of the nose or behind the eye.''

I think the symptoms you are describing might be related to that.
