Throbbing vision, intense headache followed by coughing and fainting in extremely tense situations, occasional blood in cough. Family history of cancer. Alarming?

HI, I am Aleece. In high tense situations, like arguing, my vision is throbbing and my head feels like its about to explode. I also fainted afterwards with coughing. I ve coughed up blood 3 times a month ago and havent since, but I have been on edge with emotions lately. Cancer has been in my family and caused deaths, am I wrong to think something serious is going on?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

From your description possible causes of your suffering (Headache) in order of preference:
-Stress or Anxiety causing or increasing pain complaints
-Combination of above reasons

You also need urgent evaluation for blood in sputum by a chest physician apart from evaluation by psychiatrist.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
