I wonder if anyone out there has knowledge of similar symptoms:
My husband of 58 is in hospital has

Intense headached down sides of head and across top
Intense nausea mostly in morning accompanied by tiredness and weakness. When this happens, He looks distant, not with it and is even too tired to talk.
When nausea not present, tiredness/weakness not really an issueTests done include CT scan, enhanced CT scan, blood tests, and other tests to check reflex, co-ordination etc. There are NO clots, swelling of brain, tumours, abscess, infection... Doctors are baffled completely. My husband is on pain killers, paracetomol, codeine, anti inflammataries, anti sickness medication.
Next port of call is neurologist.
I`m now thinking could it be due to some inbalance in body chemistry?
Doctors I feel are clutching at straws. As I said earlier, they are baffled at present.
