Pressure in temple, whooshing sensation. Is it related to stress or anxiety?

I have this weird whooshing feeling in my left temple. Like, a little bit of pressure all the time, but every once in a while it speeds up to a whoosh like bugs or something are crawling outwards from the temple. It doesn t hurt, it just feels really weird. If it s just stress or anxiety then so be it. Just concerned it might be something more.

Welcome to HCM

The symptoms you have described like whooshing feeling in left temporal region and pressure are not typical symptoms of anxiety. They may occur due to other illness, it may be Migraine like headache, due to some somatic symptoms of depression, High Blood pressure, anaemia etc. I would advise you to please mention your symptoms in detail or visit a good Psychiatrist for proper evaluation of symptoms.
