Foggy feeling in head...inability to concentrate...extreme sleepiness. Pulsating behind eyes especially at night, super sensitive to light like after a picture is taken the flash stays in my eyes for hours, dizzy, sometimes nauseated, flashing lights in eyes when I try to sleep. I've had a MRI, cardiac workup, postmenopausal on HRT...have seen ENT in past and was dx with vertigo. Extremely frustrated. Anyone else experience these symptoms...have any answers.

  • except for the fact that you imply that your symptoms are protracted,this sounds very like a kind of migraine.(though i think migraine can be long lived) my migraine had its roots in emotional exhaustion,and it has been almost a life long companion.i fixed it almost completely by emotional adjustment,following a hint(thats all it was,because thats the kind of teacher he was,from my tutor,a psychiatrist.) it may be that you could benefit from reducing certain of the static emotions.in particular,rage and dread. we all suffer,though we may not admit it ,and anyone in the second part of life has ,surely, ample reason for both.but some of us can not take their company to any degree.they are not good companions,in any case,and you lose nothing by ditching them.---my tutors words,so liberating ,so powerful,were" migraine?you have got a lot to learn."i offer them to you in the hope that what ails you is simply controllable in this way.for further guidance,read ---buy,keep by you----"migraine" by oliver sacks.it seems a daunting read,but is quite easy in reality,once you make a start.do not stop looking for a physical cause,(of course)but respect your doctor if he says there is so evidence for one.an overburdoned nervous system can easily throw up a group of symptoms like this,it is only trying to protect itself by slowing you down.i hope this is all it is,because you can fix it!take control!

  • Syphillis is known as the "great imitator". I'm not implying you have that.Lyme disease is caused by the same type of bacteria, a spirochete.You can test positive and have it, negative and have it, negative or positive and not have it. I was diagnosed based on "clinical diagnosis". In other words everything had been ruled out. A sensible doctor took into consideration all those tests, my symptoms, where I had lived and put me on a TRIAL of antibiotics. He said, "If you don't have lyme, these will do nothing. If you do have Lyme, you will get sick." I intentionally didn't research "the getting sick part". Three days after I started the antibiotics, I got sick, could only do the necessities, for 2 weeks. My poor husband lived on frozen food, I had bought when I first felt sick. Go to the lyme sites, look for symptom lists. Go to more than one, print up more than one list. Compare the lists to your symptom list.Hey, it's worth looking into. I was told You have MSYou don't have MSYou have (unspecified) sleep disorderYou may have had something, not now, go and get some stronger psych medsYou have something, I don't know what it is, we may never figure it out

  • Have your thryroid and adrenals checked. These conditions often follow each other and together they would explain all of your syptoms. Kiera
