I am a 28 y/o f. I take Paxil 60mg/day for depression/anxiety and believe it helps.
Lately, I've been having a weird feeling in my head. It's not painful, but it's extremely irritating [I feel it all day>. As if its being tickled or lightly squeezed. It's becoming the only thing I can focus on. I know this sounds funny, but I have this urge to take my brain out and smack it against the wall to make it stop. I've been avoiding going out in public as much as I can because everything is starting to irritate me. If I hear a loud motorcycle drive by, I get very angry/startled and swear to myself. I never used to be like this.
I lost a full time job earlier this year because of this and am now working part time at night cleaning, because that is all I can handle. I frequently have to take breaks which is unusual for me. I was always on the go getting things done. A few nights ago I actually banged my head against the wall in an effort to make it stop.
I am not sure if this is a some weird migraine/tumor/psychosis or something else, but it's severely affecting my life. I have a doctor's appointment in a few weeks. Any advice on what it could be or questions I should ask my doctor would be appreciated. Thank you.View Thread
