I am hoping someone can help or at least point me out in the right direction,

Healthy 33 yo male, on no medications what so ever. Never had any serious issues health related (other then a back injury years ago).

Approx a month ago, I had a situation come up that put me into a very "frightening" situation. I do not want to go into the details of the incident (but physically I was not harmed) however more so emotionally.

From that day I have found day after day I am more afraid of being hurt / attacked etc. With that for about two weeks I was getting less then 3 hours of sleep a day (constantly waking up in cold sweat) a few days were 0 hours of sleep. About a week and a half ago I have forced myself to get at least 4 to a maximum of 5 hours of sleep a day.

Problems: Since the incident I have had horrific pressure pains in the following areas (not headaches)

- forehead
- entire top skull

the pressure feels like a brick wall upon my forehead that does not go away. What scares me is the fact that it at time causes much confusion (meaning I at times feel lost, I can't speak correctly). The worst incident that happened was not knowing where I was after I had taken 3 Benylin night times to put me to sleep. My wife simply found me in the kitchen standing and unresponsive she helped me back to bed (i dont remember anything).

another issues I have is slight tingling (numb) sensation in my lower jaw area. It tends to leave after a few hours.

I don't know what is going on, but I feel as if my life has taken a complete turn. I am generally the most outgoing / friendly / loving person. However as of this incident I have turned into a totally different person.

What is going on with me ? Is this an anxiety issues ? do I have some type of tumor ? My wife cries every night and asks me what is wrong and I simply have no answer.

PS. One quick addition, prior to the incident (about two months ago) I did have blood tests done and a ct scan also had some weird sticky pads put all over my body to check my heart. This was due to me feeling a tingling sensation in my neck. Everything came back perfectly fine and I was told I was in very good health.


Thank You Everyone

  • Dude,why don,t you go for a physical?That would put your mind at ease because you seem to be worried about some very unlikely tumor.Also I hope you are getting some private counseling about what ever happened to you.I want to tell you that what ever happened to you don,t let that change the kind of person you are.I hope that you can rise above this .Good luck.:cool:
