I am 28 years old. I have been experiencing pressure sensation

Customer Question

Hi i am 28 years old. I have been experiencing pressure sensation in the left side of my head near the temple area. It lasts for about 10 secs and comes and goes daily. I occasionally experience chest pain and panic attacks. I feel tired and lethargic most days.

Hi--have you seen a doctor about this? Pressure as in pain?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I haven't. It's not painful just strange numbness
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
And when it happens, any vision changes?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No sometimes my vision feels more blurry than usual, smudged is the only way I can describe it

OK. This sounds like what's called variant migraine disorder--the aura of a migraine without the severe headache. It can be treated with propranolol if bothersome so you need to see a doctor about this for an exam
