Basically I have always been prone to headaches ever since I was old enough to recognize what a headache was. But most recently they have become unbearable. It feels like there is so much pressure in my head at times that I often describe it as "my head feels like it could explode at any minute" and very often in the past two weeks or so I have started going dizzy and feeling so spacey every time I stand up. I don't constantly have the sure feeling in my head. Sometimes it is just a sharp pain behind my right eye only and other times it is simply just a dull standard headache but 100% of the time without a doubt I have headaches or pains. It’s getting me so down I don't know how much longer I can take it.
Whilst I don't tend to have too much problems with my vision, nausea or vomiting, there have been periods of time when I have had mild issues with vision and one or two occasions of severe nausea. In the past I have had three black outs that I remember, with the second one placing me in a hospital for a week, but was about 10 years back. Luckily, I have not had any black outs recently but feel I may get anytime soon.
I get dizzy and shaky very easily and my head is always worse when I'm out in hot temperatures and doing any physical activity whatsoever, even something as small as walking to the shop at the end of the road. It feels like the internal of my head is constantly contracting and expanding.
I constantly feel like I have to hold on to something as I walk. I'm constantly exhausted no matter how much I sleep and never feel up to going anywhere as often it pains me to be around bright lights and am often sensitive to some sounds too.
I also have back aches, restlessness, neck pains and sometimes mild pain around my legs and ribs. Also, if I walk some distance or even remain standing for an hour or two, my feet burn and hurt.
All my tests including blood pressure, urine, stool, have all indicated everything normal.
I sometimes also use glasses as these were recommended by an eye specialist after thorough check-up, including dilation, wherein he informed that I was suffering from migraine.
I currently take paracetamol 2 -3 tablets and a short nap to get some relief. But it is always temporary.
The best time for me usually around the winter as the outdoor temperatures are not too high, which to a certain extent keeps these pains in check. But with the onset of summer, life turns upside down with constant fatigue, dizziness, weakness, terrible headaches and eye aches. I, almost always, need to wear shades during the day and sometimes even in night.
I’m a journalist and follow some tough schedule where taking leave or avoiding work is not an option. And I also work a lot in the computer. Even while working with computes, I get constant attacks of lightheadedness. I also have sinus issue.
Any suggestions on why I could be suffering from as migraine alone does not seem to be at play here.
