In May 2002 I started having strange sensations in my head, not exactly pain, more like pressure or numbness all around the crown and ears. It is tough to describe, but feels kind of like after taking out a too-tight ponytail that has been in all day or taking off a hat after a long period of wearing.
All CT/MRI normal, but the symptoms have never gone away and have since progressed.
I now have dizzy spells, occasional "zapping" feelings that run from one side of my head to the other, a whooshing sound in my left ear, numbness in my right arm, frequent disorientation/confusion, exaustion even after adequate sleep and constant neck pain.
The headache has not left for even one hour since 2002. I am beginning to lose hope of ever finding a cause. My doctor says I "look great on paper", and the following have all been negative/normal- CT/MRI of head, CT of sinuses, ear testing, chest X-rays, blood tests, breathing tests. I have also tried acupuncture and massage. I am out of ideas and unsure how to proceed. I would be greatful for any direction.
Also, I am a 34 year old female. I do not smoke or drink, and am 5'6", 127 pounds.
