Hi, I'm 28, male and can't seem to get a diagnosis. These past few months I've been experiencing frequent pressure in my head, initially mild yet grew noticeably stronger over the past few weeks. Pressure is in the front upper part of the head, slightly on the sides and accompanied by a dull pain in the lower back of the head and in the neck.
The head pressure is accompanied by very strong Tinnitus - a constant high "weet" in both ears. By now, both the head pressure and the tinnitus are almost totally constant, from getting up in the morning till bedtime.
I've been thinking, maybe it's hypertension or some such due to lifestyle. I've been overexerting myself stresswise at work, I lead a very sedentary lifestyle and I've been prone to chronic fatigue (as in not getting nearly enough sleep). I've also been experiencing chronic GERD (acid reflux) over the past couple of years, moderate but very much felt. I thought maybe the GERD could have something to do with the tinnitus but I'm not so sure anymore due to the strong head pressure. Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing this and what can be done?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
ETA to add a few more symptoms: slight dull pains or twinges in left arm/left shoulder and left leg, and tingling palms. Figured most of that was due to the GERD but I don't know.
