I had similar symptoms -- physical sensation in the head, kind of a squeezing or pressure feeling in the forehead, etc., optical weirdness (colors looking different or just feeling like I couldn't scan as well as normal) -- accompanied with feeling stupid, being very forgetful. I call them 'slow brain days.'

I talked to a doc about it and was dx'd with atypical migraines. I take verapamil 80 mg 3x/day to combat it. At the time of dx, I was VERY anxious about it -- it's scary to think you could be losing it. AND I had trouble believing it could be migraines, because of severity of the symptoms. But it turned out that it _was_ migraines; verapamil 3x/day worked like a charm to prevent them. I felt better the first day.

Plus, now that I know what it is, I feel much less anxious about my 'slow brain days'.

might wanna talk to your doc about this,
