i don't really know what's going on but i have been to the doctor many times and still can't figure out what's wrong with me

the main problem is that it feels like i am dreaming all day
feeling lightheaded almost like just after a long run or high
i have a constant headache although it's not strong
i don't do drugs, drink socially, and quit smoking a while ago
it sometimes feels like pressure in my brain
it's worse after i exercise and then i am often sensitive to light
i usually feel better in the morning
i have a hard time thinking and remembering
other symptoms which may not be related are dry eyes...always blinking hard if that even makes sense haha
my ears feel plugged and am always trying to yawn to pop them
i know i grind my teeth but i don't think that it could be the cause

i hope someone can help or at least shed some light on my symptoms
i just went to see an ear nose and throat specialist yesterday and was told everything seems ok
i also have a ct scan scheduled for next week
have had blood checked, thyroid, etc
so far no explanation
even thought it could be anxiety but i live a great life
loving family, friends
good job

this is making my life so hard
please help

  • Hi briazn,Unfortunately im not as well up on medical conditions as most of the posters on here are, but i am just letting you know that your not alone on the 'dreaming all day' symptom. Does it feel like your on autopilot 24/7? Your actually doing these day to day things, but dont remember telling yourself to do them?

  • First of all, are you taking any medications currently? How long have you had this foggy headed sensation? Do you have frequent sinus problems, sinusitis or allergy related problems? Any cough? Any shortness of breath? Do you have any urinary problems - frequency, urgency, nighttime urine? What is your digestion like? Gas, bloating, heartburn? Any loose stools or diarrhea? Constipation? Best wishesDOM
