I hope somebody can help me. The pressure on top of my head, on one side, feels like being under water in a swimming pool. People experience that I don't pay attention/ I don't hear them (I am dizzy). I experience cramps in my head which result in cramps in my body, lower back pain, diarrhea. I have to lay flat on the floor immediately because the world spins. I have to pass out for it's really hard to keep my eyes open. Afterwards I'm exhausted. Now it has come to a point that I experience this day and night. I have to make notes, because otherwise I don't remenber and cannot do more than one thing at a time anymore, otherwise I forget what I was doing or didn't hear the other person. Driving gives me unbearable neck/backpain and can trigger the cramps in my head, as do moving objects. Sometimes I find myself yawning for oxygene, especially when I have to eat. If I've eaten well, the cramps in my head begin, then my back, then again diarrhea, then I have to pass out. I wake up desoriented. On a daily base I have what I call "black-outs" where one eye start trembling, getting smaller than the other, start staring. I have to squeeze myself or keep talking to keep myself awake sometimes. That talking bothers people, because I have a hard time retaining the information that they give me and they often have to repeat themselves or I repeat myself. The doctors in my country so far haven't taken me serious. Now I hope somebody with similar experiences or somebody with a medical background can help me, because I am getting worse every day and I don't know how I can change it. It's hard to ignore, because the pressure is always there, day and night.

  • I live in Holland. MRI and CT scan have been taken. The only thing they could see was some degeneration between C3-C4 and C4-C5, which was normal (according to them). I am 35 years old. No head-injury I know of, though it has been called a whiplash by a therapist, another doctor called it fybromyalgy/ hyperflexibility. After a while, I was diagnosed with mononucleosis. I don't use any medication. The problems started around 2001, when I experienced chronical sinusitis. During that period I had an experience like something "snapped"in my brain (around 2002). Blood was coming out of my nose on a regular base.

  • I forgot to say that in that later that same year, in 2002, I had a sceptum correction, in order to breath better. I didn't help at all. I had to sneeze constantly afterwards. I went to Florida for a week, got a high fever and an infection and went back home. After the anasthetics I couldn't get into a deep sleep anymore, I seemed too alert, almost like on constant adrenaline. After a while that changed completely. I appeared drowsy and totally disturbed and startled when f.e. somebody talked to me unexpectedly, almost as if that person woke me up from my dream during broad daylight. My reflexesbecame sharpened. I fell one time and broke my hand because I didn't pay attention, as if I wasn't there.
