Hi. I have been having panic attacks lately for which i was prescribed sentroline three days ago. Yesterday i felt a dull shooting pain in my head which lasted about a half second but ess enough to really send me in a panic. I daw doctor today amd she said it was prob a nerve paim but i am frightened by it happening again as my pamic attacks make my feelings worse and i obviously feel paranoid aboit it that it might be serious. Are they common amd can u put my mind at rest.
I should mentiom that she has put me on diazepam to help my feelings in short term

These types of pains are very common and totally benign

many normal thinks like allergies and various muscle spasms can cause them
