Im so frightened. I have been having pressure in my head for nearly two years now. The last two months has been much much worse. It doesnt come and go, its there all the time. I can here grating crunching sounds all over my head and face. I had a brain and sinus scan when all started which showed clear. Tinnitus started suddenly in the night. Never gone. Also increased to point of cant cope over last few months. 2/3 heavy prolonged periods in last 2 years otherwise they fairly normal. Missed one completely last month but then had dreadful one this month, prolonged heavy and clots. I wake up feeling like have flu. I also have strange sensation when i wake where all the weight in my head has shifted to one side and i cant hear properly so i turn over. After a while it shifts to that side and my hearing almost goes that side. Once up, which is a task in itself, it levels out after about 5 mins. Seen SO many specialists, neurologists, ENT, doc put me on Sertraline but i came off that as didnt help. I cant sleep with tinnitus. I cant function, each day is a mental battle to get through and every day i say i cant take anymore a dozen times a day. Ive been told im depressed but its my symptoms that are depressing me! All blood checks from doc come back normal. I truly cant cope. I have just seen an Endocrinologist who has ordered another brain scan which has frightened the hell out of me again as well as more bloods. All my eggs are in his basket now, if he cant come up with somethng and help me i dont know what ill do. I am overwhelmed with fear day in day out and thru night. I wonder how much more anxiety my body can take. Now started to get giddy. I have nose bleeds when ive never had them before. Sharp needle pains everywhere. Blurred and strained vision. Flashing lights on vision. Breathing and panic attacks. Cry alot but even that hurts muscles in my head. I feel desperate. Someone please tell me if this is perimenopause? At least then i have some hope that it will end one day. Tho i worry what damaged is being done to my ears. They have been checked by audiologist..nothing found.. hearing tests okay even tho my hearing keeps going ... what is happening to me??!!
