I'll start out by saying that I'm a 20 year old female university student.
I never really had any mental health problems, I don't have any problems in social situations, and I even spent a year abroad with no troubles.
Recently, about two months ago, I've been experiencing odd symptoms. I feel a tightness in my head, towards the back of my head. I also occasionally feel sharp pains in my head, sometimes it increases when I bend over and stand back up.
I also have been feeling what some describe as "brain fog" or feeling detached and tired. I have really sore neck muscles. I saw my physician a few weeks ago and he reported nothing wrong with my digestive system or blood work.
All these symptoms get worse right before bed, and I often have worries that I will die in my sleep.
I can't stop thinking about feeling like this. I'm worried that it's anxiety, but I'm worried that it is something worse.
Earlier this week I started eating healthier and exercising in hopes that it will help me feel better, but I can't tell if it's making an impact at such an early point.
