I would appreciate any suggestions you might offer. I'll be as brief as possible.
- Pressure in my forehead. Both sides. Started about a year ago and has gradually progressed from mild to severe. Present 24/7.
- Stiff feeling in my face. Both sides. Started about 3 months ago around my eyes and now covers my entire face. Recently became more pronounced on the left side.
- Difficulty with sleep. Never a problem going to sleep, but if I wake up I'm done!
-tingling numbness in left hand and left foot. Started about a week ago.
-waves of mild nausia. I think from the head pressure.
I tried to self-treat my head pressure for about 9 months with dietary changes, more water, etc. About three months ago I got my doctor involved. He started by focusing on my sleep quality by proscribing Ambien. It wasn't effective and tried several other drugs...currently nortryptalene 50mg. Still not sleeping well.
My doc has suggested anxiety/stress as the underlying cause. He put me on Wellbutrin for about a month but my symptoms only worsened. We stopped that.
I had a CT scan with emphasis on my sinuses that was pronounced "clear". I am scheduled to see a neurologist in two weeks.
I would welcome any ideas! Thanks my Internet friends!
