I can't seem to get any doctors to help with this. I get almost a constant prickly, tingling sensation in my face, along with a feeling that my face and neck are going to explode with pressure. At the same time that this occurs, I am dizzy to the point of difficulty walking, and feel so bad inside that it's debilitating. There is also a band of tightness around my chest, and a feeling that my stomach cavity is pressurized and distended. Sometimes the tingling and pressure extend down to the top sides of my forearms. I've had heart issues ruled out. They found a blockage in one artery bad enough to put in a stint. Carotid ultrasound and CT of brain revealed nothing except minor blockage they said. No one talks about the veins, just the arteries. Several doctors have talked about neurological problems, but this definitely feels like vascular.....same sensation as bending over and having the blood rush into your face and head but much worse and doesn't go away. Help? Anyone know what this might be?
