Hello,

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

Customer:

Hello

mysticdoc :

Stress can cause increased blood pressure and that can be felt as head pressure.

Customer:

Is this a cause for concern?

mysticdoc :

Dry mouth is due to the nerve reflex.

mysticdoc :

THis is not cause for concern since you do not experience the symptoms normally.

mysticdoc :

Please get your blood pressure checked.

Customer:

I was recently diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. Could this all be anxiety-related?

Customer:

My blood pressure was checked less than a month ago. It tends to fall on the low side.

Customer:

What can I take now since I still feel a small amount of pressure on the top of my head?

mysticdoc :

yes likely anxiety related

mysticdoc :

this is not concerning.

mysticdoc :

Tylenol should help with the pressure feeling.

mysticdoc :

For anxiety, herbal supplement valerian root extract will be helpful.
