So for two years now I have experienced a constant pressure in my forehead area. I am often confused, foggy, and lethargic. It gets better and worse some days but is always there, I cant seem to find out its causes or remedies because it is always changing.

I have had a CT scan, gone on antibiotics, had blood and urine samples, 24 hour blood pressure monitor, Ive been told its sinusitis, TMJ, and post concussion syndrome by doctors and everything I seem to try doesn't help.

It seems to get worse with heavy weight lifting, bending over, extreme exertion, reading, and driving (especially at night) I currently think that it is an ear/sinus problem, possibly patulous Eustachian tube? but Im no doctor..

Thank you, and I appreciate any positive feedback you may have!
