A couple of months or so ago, I noticed a weird head sensation that came out of nowhere. The best way I can explain it is like a moving sensation. Recently, it's gotten worse & pressure has been added to the mix. It's mostly on the left to middle side of my head & it's extremely uncomfortable. Sometimes there's pain but most of the time, there's not. However, when there is pain, it's bearable but very uncomfortable. It gets worse at night but it's always there. The moving sensation is somewhat relieved when I place my hand over my head with & without slight pressure.
Sometimes the sensations make me feel nauseous.
I'd also like to add that my throat has been bothering me for months now, off & on. My throat feels constricted & irritated throughout the day & it's most days.
Sometimes my vision is kind of blurry & my eyes get irritated.
My sense of taste is also randomly triggered sometimes out of nowhere, it's an odd thing to really describe.
I've woken up out of my sleep before feeling completely removed from my surroundings, it was as if my brain was turned off 100% while my eyes were opened. In these moments, I'd also shake. This would last for around 15-20 minutes & then I'd go back to sleep.
I also get jolted awake sometimes from pauses in breathing while I'm trying to sleep.
I feel completely out of it, sleepy no matter how much sleep I get & I feel detached from my surroundings all day everyday.
I don't have insurance & can't get it but I am a part of this program that provides free health & dental services for people without insurance. I tried to talk to a doctor about my brain problems but he basically said in so many words that he didn't know what to tell me because my symptoms weren't “by the book." He did claim that he'd call & schedule an appointment for lab work & an x-ray but he never did.
I know that something is very wrong here but no one ( doctors ) will take me seriously. I've been to the ER & to a couple of different doctors over the past year due to different health problems & it was always a bs outcome.
I honestly think I might have a tumor or some kind of brain disease.
My health problems have been stressing me out & I feel like I'm headed down a path of isolation & depression. I don't remember what I felt like before all the health problems. I don't want to be a burden to anyone around me but I feel like I'm headed down a path of deterioration because of all of this. I'm sick of the discomfort, I'm sick of having to push myself everyday because my body is abusing me & I'm sick of being more quiet about it than I really feel like being. I just want to lay in bed & cry.
Sorry for the long post, I don't really know why I'm posting here like this. I guess I just need someone to talk to or maybe I needed to vent & complain, I don't know.
Thank you if you read all of this and/or reply. ?
