> Does concentrating hard exacerbate this problem?? It's wierd that this "pressure" problem came back the day after we were talking about..I think it had something to do with me forgetting to take sam-e..as it happened when I went off prozac...or maybe the only thing that alleviates this problem is being on a sertogonic med..it's possibly not the withdrawal that's causing it which was my first guess.. But it seems my brain is actually "hurting" and "pressurized" when I am concentrating on something like math..or trying to articulate events or facts in my head to put on paper.. That is when it's the most apparent.. But another idea that comes to my head is that ssri's have been used off label to treat migraines..and it may be lifting this *absent migraine* which is causing this pressure...I dunno i'm just speculating..

Heh. That's weird. If I remember correctly, the first time I had the pressure was a day or two after I read about someone esles experience with it online. I guess there could be a psychological component that exacerbates things.

Its possible that concentrating makes things worse, but I do know that its gotten very bad while just sitting in front of my computer. Obsessing and certain social situations may also be a factor. I can remember one time recently that I had terrible head sensations while watching a play in a theater. As soon as I left the theater and started walking to the car, it dissapeared.

As for serotogenic drugs in general alleviating the problem... I find it unlikely (in my case at least). I continued to have suffer with it while taking Zoloft (up to 75mg) for a couple months.
