Lack of oxygen to head!

Please help me!
When I walk, stand-up, or do strenuous exercise, I feel as though there is insufficient blood/oxygen going to my brain, which leads to some of my muscles involuntarily stiffening and bad headaches.

I'll explain the whole story.

It first started about 3 years ago when I was preparing for a football match. Having done some step ups, I felt a light-headed sensation. It was certainly wierd, but not dehabilitating and lasted about 2 seconds.
Unfortunately, it got progressively worse from here, and I found myself unable to sprint without this sensation (but worse than the abovementioned).

I went to the doctor concerning this, and they explained that I had rhinitis, which meant my nasal passages had swollen most likely due to allergy. I was given some medication for this, and low and behold, it really did help ease the problems.
However, more recently, I was at work and found myself struggling to walk without such a sensation - very difficult when I'm expected to show customers around.

I went to the doctor who seems slightly unsure as to what this was, having assured me my blood pressure was at a suitable level, whilst my heartbreat was regular. I've been sent for some blood tests, but have been told not to get my hopes up about finding a diagnosis.
Therefore, I'd really appreciate if anyone could help.

Basically, I have a tendency to lose oxygen to my head - like the sensation you get when you quickly stand-up - when generally walking, whilst my neck begins to stiffen. As a result, I tend to suffer from headaches.

If it helps, I used to have really bad sinus problems as a child, although tests confirmed I didn't have sinusities. However, I still feel pain in my sinuses every now and again, and when I lean forward, I can sometimes really feel pressure around the area.
However, I don't want to lead you with the latter point, because it's something I've only just really thought of as potentially significant, and I would appreciate any advice that is given.

Thanks.

  • Maybe have your heart checked. If the heart isn't pumping properly, you will lack oxygen in your head. Ask for EKG

  • Sorry, its really old confession but I am currently in the same situation like yours. May I know what is exactly happens ? I'm afraid if it something serious. I drink lemon + mineral water on the night before on the next day I feel like there is an a painful oxygen (bubble) from my nose go through my brain and immediately it makes me feel dizzy right away. If it make sense.. Its so painful. Even tho when I laying down the same thing happen. Pls answer me if you notice this, tq.

    WOW - I have the same - its what I call head/facial PRESSURE!
    Right where the sinuses are and spreads through the head/brain. Have a rash around sinus area.
    Its not a sinus issue. Been to 4 ENT's.

    Am looking into cerebral hypoxia and dysautonomia.
