Around 7 months ago I started experiencing hearing problems... like my hearing was muffled... this comes and goes... but has now become constant. The doctor told me my ears looked fine and maybe I have sinus pressure in my ears and gave me a nasal spray... this didn't help at all. I also wake up with entire ear pain in the mornings... not always... but several times a month. About 5 months ago I started having severe Vertigo issues and the meds given to help with my vertigo symptoms didn't help it at all either. 4 months ago started my first Icepick headaches... it started just once for a few minutes and then at least a month later it happened again... but this time it happened several times in one day and at the onset of ANY stress (like something that would make you sigh) kept bringing them on. Now I get them EVERY DAY... and now I also get just a bad headache with icepicks on top of them. This causes me to have double vision in my right eye... it makes me nauseous... my hearing gets worse... I can't deal with light while I am having the headaches, my personality changes from sweet and normal to rage and aggressive. Also... in the last 2 months... I am unable to keep a constant thought while trying to hold a conversation... and I can't find words while looking at objects or people. Such as I can be looking at a set of curtains and I can't NOT find the word. So much so that I lock up all together and just point in the direction of the item I am trying to say. I was also folding clothes today and forgot how to button a normal button down shirt for a few seconds. It was like my motor skills are starting to mess up. And I have started reaching for items... like a glass and barely miss it and it falls and breaks. My doctors keep trying to diagnose or rather... treat each symptom rather than looking at it as a whole. I had to beg for a neuro consult... and finally got one. But the dr. keeps insisting that it is just icepick headaches. I am frustrated to the max. I feel something else is really wrong here. I have had 3 cancers by the time I was 26... now 35. My dad and grandmother both had brain cancer and tumors... not sure if they are one and the same. So is it just an icepick headache or should I seek a CT Scan?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
