Chrissy,

 

I have had this as well. At one point, I felt as if my head was being jerked back. It past and hopefully it doesn't come back.

Hopefully, these sx's will subside for you soon.

 

How long has it been going on?

Just curious to know.

Hi Chrissy, I have been off 19 months. All my symptoms are physical and head/eye/brain feeling based. That said, I had the head pressure strong after month 12 till now, it's sporadic and mild. It's always the same place, the top center of my head, like a little space between my skull and brain is where the top felt pressurized. I'm saying this because it has recently been replaced with the feeling of a paperweight heavy weight feeling on the top of my brain. Just feels like a weight resting there. Some days mild, some days stronger, some days gone. Very Strange.

 

It sounds like my degree has gone down considerably from where you are. I hope you feel it dissipate soon.

The head pressure and heavy feelings, as I stated before come and go. Usually mine is in the morning as well.

I think that it will subside along with other sx's as we go along in the process. It can be bothering and miserable, but hang in there.

How am I doing? Ok for now, but you know withdrawal.
