For a little background I am a 30 year old female. I have had headaches my entire life and suffered from allergies since my teens. After my daughter was born 4 years ago I had sinus surgery as I started to notice constant pressure in my face and ears so I went to an ent and I did have some sinusnitus and a deviated septum. Move forward another year and I notice a constant ear ringing, I mention this to the ent and he decides to try a steroid thinking maybe I have fluid in my ears, no help, thinks maybe I need tubes, back tracks and decides I need to visit my dentist it’s probably due to tmj. So I get a bite guard fast forward a year and here I am three months ago and still no relief and I am noticing the ear ringing is getting worse, the pressure in my head is worse, I’m having vision problems, headaches that really just don’t go away, I get tenderness at the base of my skull just from laying down, when I bend over and stand up I can feel my heart beat in my head(I forgot all these symptoms are mainly all left sided) I did decide to get my vision checked as it had been over a year since my eye exam and no changes were found. I went back to the ent, they did a hearing test - small change nothing crazy, so they did a VEMP, I had an abnormal result on my left side but not exactly sure what that meant so I was sent for a ct scan. Ct scan came back normal so dr decided I am having vestibular migraines and put me on a beta blocker- all that did was intensified my daily headache so I stopped it. Now I am being referred to a neurologist which is where I started back 5 years ago!!!! HELP
