Light headed
Buzzing in head
Sort of dizzy
Otherwise completely functional

Short version at bottom


I have been feeling different for a few days. I have been feeling light headed, and a constant buzzing in my head. In fact, I would describe it as I constantly "feel" my head, as opposed to not noticing it normally. I shouldn't be too concerned yet, but I want to see if it sounds familiar to someone.

It's worrying because I have never had this feeling before.
I would describe it similar to a fever caused by the flu in many ways. It has lasted a couple of days (progressively getting worse), but I have not really gotten ill yet. It usually strikes fast if it does strike. I don't have to stay in bed, I function more or less normal, and haven't even gotten stomach ill. Usually, if I have the flu, it's either not noticeable beyond just feeling a bit sick in my stomach and joints, or have to lie in bed, but this is almost only in my head.

I don't live a particularly healthy life. Eat unhealthy and stay a lot inside. Although I have just started eating healthier, right before I started noticing it.
(Could it possibly be it? Withdrawal of some sorts??)

I am definitely not a hypochondriac, but I do think a lot and postulate serious illnesses, but never concerns me more than "Hmm... Maybe it's ? Bah! Probably not. I am worrying too much". I rarely go to the doctor. Before earlier this month, it had been 8 years or so.

I have recently been to the doctor for a different reason. I don't want to rush to the doctor just yet, but I will if this persists beyond a week or two.
I'm sure you rather want posts after being to the doctor and finding nothing, but I really want to "run it by" you folks first. I apologize.

Light headed and buzzing in head, slight dizziness (completely functional otherwise). Constantly "feeling" my head, as opposed to not noticing normally. Looks like fever caused by flu, only it is only affecting my head, which is unusual. Not been to doctor, will if persists beyond a week or two.
Not severe symptoms, but I have never experienced this before, which causes me concern.


Thanks. This is not a last resort, and I apologize for any unwarranted inconvenience.
