I have never had really any headaches especially migraines. But i have had a lot of stress in my life for a very long time, anyway. I was sitting watching a movie, when suddenly i felt pressure build up really fast in the back left part of my head... then there was a a "crack" that i could even hear ( like something internally cracked in my brain) then i felt a warm sensation in the back of my head. Right after i got that sense of impending doom, my chest tighened up and i wave of numbness kinda came over me; then my heart rate got jacked. I was freaked out, i got up walking trying to calm myself from what felt like a heart attack. It continued in waves, i would feel weird then my heart would get jacked up, face numb, and was very shaky. i was 90% sure i was gona drop dead. Then went on for about 45min. I had been drinking quit a bit so i thought maybe the years of drinking was showing its face. Then 2 weeks later i was sitting in class, i didnt get anything in my head but i got that feeling that i was gona die, and my heart got jacked up, couldnt concentrate, numbness in left side of my face, went in waves just liek before. I dont have the money or insurance to do mri's etc but now im really starting to think they just really bad anxiety attacks. Only thing that worries me is that thing that went in my head...if it was a small stroke i dont think id be here. the 2nd one happened 4 days ago. I'm also having weird memory problems with lil small simple things... my memory seems fine but my g/f would be like i just told you that right now..and i have no recollection of it. Can this be just anxiety attacks? im 26 yr old male. I really hope so. Any advice would be appreciated. i been taking xanex and it really seems to help.
