Hi guys, hope you are all well. Will try to keep this short and sweet. I am a 21 year old healthy male; I suffer from grade 1 reflux oesophagitis which, is being treated by the gastrologist.
I have been suffering from headaches for the past few years, but only in the last few months the headaches have gotten really worse. I have always been assuming my headaches are linked with the reflux but clearly not.
I was admitted into hospital last Friday (6th Feb) with severe headache (which is still on) and a pulse of 150. My wisdom tooth was taken out on the 2nd of Feb, which led the doctors to believe I had an infection and thus blame the headache on the "infection". I was in hospital for 2 nights with my pulse still hitting over 100 and a high BP. I was discharged on Sunday (8th Feb) to go to my GP.
Went to my GP the next day, and was sent for a CT scan, bloods and ECG the next day. Went to my GP yesterday (13th) and my CT scan is all clear, so are bloods but my heart is out of rhythm. I am currently taking Zomig 5mg Nasal Spray and Propranolol 40mg tablets which was given too me yesterday as well as my gastro medicine and Codeine.
I am at a point where I have not been to work for 2 weeks, uncomfortable and scared too drive, headaches are getting really painful, dizziness is always constant and just not being able to live life as I used too. The pain, shifts from left to right and right to left and most of them time all over my head. I get the feeling as if someone is squeezing my head. I am constantly having the feel of being sick but never do and always feeling tired.
Can you guys please give me some help and advice on what I can do? Sorry if I ranted too much if you need to ask me any more questions please let me know.
