Do others get this in the neck too, that moves around? Sometimes at the back, others at the side, and the throat too?

cold (ice cubes in a towel wrapped on head), or  immersion in a bucket with ice cold water (head and face only)

It helps me.I feel as if there are sores at the inside of my skull or brain:/ And if my brain is shrinking or expanding, basically its like a migraine but at instead of behind eyes/temples its all over the skull

Paracetamol might help with the pain, but not the pressure.
My 2 cents on the matter.

I used to take ''solpadein'' (in Europe) for recurrent migraine, which has now is kind of gone to my surprise. I had it daily when updosing on benzos. It was one reason I started suspecting benzos are naaaaaasty.... I was updosing a little due to tolerance levels reached and always had migraine.

Now I still get occasional migraine (when I dont sleep enough for example) and avoid solpadein, aspirin, and any drug, I put ice caps or ice hats or just ice cubes in a towel on my head and showlders and wear dark shade eye glasses and try not to read or look tv/pc but listen audiobooks.... Its [...] when I have one cause it feels as if my blood pressure is high too (I used to have a blood pressure monitor but my foggy brains have lost many items and I must invest 50 euro minimum to get a new one).

Ice should not touch bare skin (just to make sure ppl dont hurt themselves reading this), and enough towels should be between the ice and the skin. Ice can burn the skin. One day I froze part of my belly so much that I had to cuddle a warm water bottle. When I say ''ice'' I mean used safely. Its easier to diffuse towels in a water bowl that contains some ice cubes, then wrap it around the head, thats safer than actually wearing ice cubes straight on head/body.

But really I do have surged panic attacks/anxiety/ and tremors as withdrawal symptoms but very glad my daily migraine (that was there with high daily dose of benzo) is now gone...

Yup...me...I have it on both sides of my nose, sometimes all the way up through my eyes to my forehead, and down to my chin.  It is the scariest sensation.  When I have it really bad, I start to worry, because usually that means I'm going to start having vertigo again.  I'm with you...this is definitely worth a freak out...I can't imagine the rest of my life like this...

I find that Cinnarizine can help with some of the  head symptoms. Not the pain but for me it can esse the wierder stuff a little bit.
I have it on prescription for vertigo in the UK but it is basically a travel sickness pill that is often sold as Sturgeron in chemists.
