Hi all:
I am a 22 year old father of two and have grown overly concerned about my heath status, to the point were the concern has become paranoia. I started having a back ache which subsided eventually after about two or three days from original onset. This was followed by an intense sensation near the occipital lobe of the brain. It was not a pain, or at least the pain that is usually associated with headaches. Rather, the sensation can best be described as hitting ones funny bone, but juxtaposed on my head. The sensation thwarted my equilibrium and for a period of approximately 24 hours I was in a state of perplexity. I visited the ER and has a CT Scan perfomed and the scan showed nothing. I am concerned that i might have an unruptured aneurysm of something worse.
The headached will occassional subside and move from the occipital region of the brain to the temporal. I have notice a popping of the ears occurring from time to time. This also is accompanied by nausea but never vomitting.
Also, of late I have been experiencing a tingling sensation on the right side of the chest, extended to the back shoulder blade, while creating tension on next and throat. Two days ago I awaken to a mild fever and was provided with antibiotics. I dont feel as bad but Im just not as confident in these doctors. To me its seems as if they are playinh a guessing game, and this to me is a risk that in my opinion no one should have to take. If anyone has any insight into the origins of this please elucidate. I will be forever indebted to you.
