I've had an eeg...and it showed up nothing..I did have a feeling of pressure being applied to my brain but it seemed to occur when I came off ssri's..and it then seemed to subside..in a few weeks.. I have horrible brain fog..I can't seem to think..especially while writing and essay I just can't gather my thoughts..they just aren't there..it's like there locked up in a box and won't come out...That is all..you're symptoms you'd described just sounded really familiar.. Have you seen a specialist about this..i'm sure he could tell you the possible causes of this pressure you speak of.. did this happen after you came off ssri's?? Or durring ssri treatment??
