"...nothing to fear: Unless you've been diagnosed with a heart condition or another medical disorder, you are likely experiencing the physical effects of anxiety (not serious). If you're generally healthy and in your early 20's you can relax and carry on. Bodies respond differently to anxiety, fear, worry, dread.

Top of head & front of head pressure, feeling fluid in ears and feelng off balance, im scared this has been happening for four days what could it be?

Doubt migraine: The symptoms are more consistent with a viral rhino-sinusitis. This problem, is most likely viral, but you must see an ENT doctor for an appropriate diagnosis and treatment. The fluid in the ear feeling is most likely from Eustachian tube edema. 4 days duration is consistent with a viral upper respiratory infection. If symptoms last longer, as above, see an ENT doctor.

23yo female so scared I have a brain tumor just have a feeling of pressure at the top and side of my head. Doesn't get any worse no other symptoms?

Relax, see dr.: Brain tumors in your age group are not common. If the headache goes away with paracetamol and there are no neural symptoms like confusion, weakness, numbness, double vision, the headache is worse in the afternoon, and no nausea and vomiting, you can relax. Make an appointment with your doctor for a neurological exam and ask if you may need other tests done. Sometimes sertralene can cause headaches. ...Read more

Sounds like a sinus: You may have sinus blockage and/or infection, which could be due to allergies. Anything unusual happening in your head makes you feel strange and possibly "low". Try your allergy medication, nasal sprays, apply heat packs to the "heavy" areas, inhale warm mist to try to let any trapped mucous out. Don't take anything containing aspirin. If you get fever or this lasts, see someone. Good luck! ...Read more

Muscle tension progresses through the day and is often worse in the afternoon or evening. The alignment of the neck may be incorrect due to a muscle strain, ligament injury, or early arthritis.
