No matter what i try there's always a lingering bit of self conscious tightness and anxiety holding out in my head and chest even after many hours of zazen. As i open the senses and settle the tanden this tension still remains in the background. Am i doing something wrong? Do i just ignore it?

Maybe you entered this path because of this feeling, but it is not the problem of Zazen or how you are doing it. Being stuck on outside matters is the cause of this anxiety not getting resolved. In Zazen nothing of this lingering unclarity can be left behind.
