Head Pressure

Posted , 2 users are following.

When I overdo, I get typical fuzzy thinking, vertigo feeling. I have to lay down, but I want to know if anyone ever feels like a stack of books is sitting on their head. This is different than a migraine which I also get. Just checking against others experiences.

    I get that if I watch TV. Haven't been able to in almost 4 months. Riding in the car does it to.

      It always helps when some can agree and say me too... I had been traveling in a car about 5 hours, but the pressure didn't start for a couple hours. Of course I came home, though I was ok from Drive and started wrapping presents. That's when it started. Probably an overdo??

      Tried to do to much on a day you felt good? I done that before. Anytime at all in the car bothers me. ENT wants me to see a neurotologist. Closest one is a hour + away. Not sure how that will turn out. 10-15 minutes in a car is torture.

      Did you find anything that helps the pain. This is a new symptom for me, unless it's a type of migraine.

      Sorry that your vertigo is so bad you can't make a 15 min car ride. I don't know where you live, but I've started going to a direct pay dr. One fee a month, unlimited services and he makes house calls. Even with ins, he saves me a lot of money because most drs I can skip now.

      Neurotologist is such a specific specialist, there are few and far between. The vestibular system is a very complexed system. He deals with the connections to your brain etc. They already know my left ear has a significant loss of vestibular response. Now they need to find out why and how to fix it. 10 years ago but was manageable with therapy. They even had trouble figuring out what side was causing issues. Now it's very easy to tell by the tests they did. But therapist said there's more than just one thing going on. It's not just bppv . Some suspect menieres. Others say not enough hearing loss could be silent migraines. Who knows. Lol

      That's just it, what's frustrating, we can spend thousands of dollars going to a lot of specialists who still can't really diagnosis and treat these symtoms. If found a good one, you are one of the fortunate. I hope you're able to make the trip soon.
