Hi, I've been having trouble for a very long time with the way my head seems to collect blood or something it is up to neurologically - for no apparent reason, but having some correlation with what I'm thinking, I can get a sharp spike to the head that can either be localised, or part of a larger feeling of excessive pressure (like there's too much in the skull). Often it will correlate with a feeling of tension in some part of the body, ie. hands, chest, legs, etc. I can't be cetain but there might be 'crackling' sounds occasionally which I think might be the bones in my neck, jaw, ear or maybe even sinuses. I have a very bad neck - it's been under strain for years and neglected badly (ie, I've attempted at times to stretch it or move it riound in circles which hasn't felt very good...).
I also have a constant, dull headache, like tension or pressure around the forehead. It 'never' goes away, though occasionally when I get in a state where I'm releasing emotions it tends to feel a lot better.
Alot of the 'blunt force' experiences correlate with taking in a sudden breath - so I imagine I'm taking a panicked breath of oxygen and it's putting a spike of a oxygen into my blood. This really worries me for two reasons - (1) it causes dizziness and I worry sometimes it could almost knock me over, but this 'near knock-out' could be from exhaustion, too, as it seems less of a problem in the mornings. (2) I'm worried this is damaging the brain or weakening blood vessels...
Does this sound correct? Could a back/neck injury be causing the headache? Are the sharp pains and feelings of blunt force really breathing problems? Can damage be done to the brain this way? ie with breath? Can repressed memories cause these sorts of symptoms - ie. the attempts of material to surface from the unconscious? What's happening?
