    Constant pressure in back of my head - please help!

    I have been diagnosed with agitated depression and severe anxiety, but I am not sure about it...I have never had any attacks with racing heart and sweating and all that. I feel constantly anxious, and I constantly had this pressure in my head, like it's going to explode, or wants to expand, but there is an iron ring around it, so pressure inside mounts, mostly in the back of my head. I am going to burst out of my head soon, or at least suffer brain damage from the pressure. At least that's what I feel like. Lamictal helped, I went from feeling like this all the time to feeling it only sometimes, when I am stresed. I have not seen this described as a symptom in the DSM.
    Does anyone have this? What can one do against it? (Ativan seems to help, but I can take it only rarely. I have taken Paxil, Effexor, Serzone, and other stuff, but nothing helped against this feeling.)
    Thanks in advance for your input!
