For the past 6 weeks I've been having weird symptoms. I've been feeling lightheaded for the majority of the day and now it's turned into a heavy headed/dizzy feeling and I feel like I'm in a brain fog. I sometimes feel like I have a hard time speaking, and feel detached. I used to be so active and now I'm always tired and lethargic and want to sleep all the time. It's hard because I want to spend time with people but I just feel awful all the time. I will wake up feeling out of it. No matter how much I sleep I wake up exhausted. I'll sleep anywhere between 6-10 hours and a normal day is 8 or 9 hours. Recently I have started having headaches. They are mostly mild and are tension-like. I'll feel like there is a rubber band around my head and sometimes it will feel like a hot burning feeling in my head. In the past month I've had three weird nights. I would feel like I'm about to fall asleep and then I would feel like I forgot how to breath and I would jolt awake with my heart racing and feeling hot. I have always been scared of getting a brain tumor.
A little health history:
I have had 4 concussions in the past three years.
I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome
I have TMJ Disorder.
I took a course of antibiotics for a sinus infection 6 or 7 weeks ago
I had a CT scan in April and nothing was found
Bloodwork done in december and everything was normal (Checked for anemia, thyroid, liver, kidneys, etc.) only thing unusual was a slightly elevated level of iron.
I recently heard something about Candida overgrowth and a major cause can be a course of antibiotics. My symptoms have showed up right around that time frame and many of them are similar to candida.
I'm overall very scared. I'm a college student in a happy realtionship and don't know what kind of stress can cause anxiety and my symptoms also can be from brain tumors. I just want some answers because my doctors don't know what's going on.
Anyone have any ideas?
