Hey guys I've been having some weird symptoms going on for the last several months. I've been having tension-like headaches that never seem to have an end. In detail, it feels like there is a tight band around my head and like there is a pressure in my head. Sometimes I can feel the tension in my neck too. Along with this I have been experiencing debilitating brain fog. It comes at random times, sometimes when I'm out in public shopping, sometimes at work, and sometimes when I'm with my friends. Another weird occurance that I can't explain is that randomly I will feel like I cant keep my eyes open. Its like the feeling you get when you get poked in the eye even though i havent and its both eyes. I constantly have to blink and its awkward when people are trying to speak with me. I have highs and lows. I have some days where I can wake up and be fine for the most part and go on with my day, and some days the head pressure gets worse throughout the course of the day. Everynow and then I have a hard time falling asleep. I will get to the point where I am about to fal into my sleep and I will jolt awake and my heart will be racing and I am trying to catch my breath. One of my doctors thinks it is an anxiety attack. I am not convinced. For the last ten days or so I have been having it bad again, and it really wears me down physically and emotionally. I used to be in great shape. I would run 5K 4-5 days a week and then work out at the gym after. Now somedays I feel like I cant even get out of bed without feeling winded. But on days where I feel better I can run and work out fine. For the last seven months I have been fearing the worst. I am afraid it is something like a brain tumor. I've seen my home physician and mine doctor at my university several times looking for answers, but to little avail. One of my doctors told me that she was certain that it wasnt a brain tumor. She thought I may be dealing with stress and anxiety so she reccomended seeing a therapist although she never gave a legitimate diagnosis. I am not convinced it is anxiety because I really have no major stressors in my life. I just hope some of you could give me any new ideas because I'm starting to lose hope that I'll ever feel normal again.
