Dear people,

I hope somebody can help me. The pressure on top of my head, on one side, feels like being under water in a swimming pool. People experience that I don't pay attention/ I don't hear them (I am dizzy). I experience cramps in my head which result in cramps in my body, lower back pain, diarrhea. I have to lay flat on the floor immediately because the world spins. I have to pass out for it's really hard to keep my eyes open. Afterwards I'm exhausted. Now it has come to a point that I experience this day and night. I have to make notes, because otherwise I don't remenber and cannot do more than one thing at a time anymore, otherwise I forget what I was doing or didn't hear the other person. Driving gives me unbearable neck/backpain and can trigger the cramps in my head, as do moving objects. Sometimes I find myself yawning for oxygene, especially when I have to eat. If I've eaten well, the cramps in my head begin, then my back, then again diarrhea, then I have to pass out. I wake up desoriented. On a daily base I have what I call "black-outs" where one eye start trembling, getting smaller than the other, start staring. I have to squeeze myself or keep talking to keep myself awake sometimes. That talking bothers people, because I have a hard time retaining the information that they give me and they often have to repeat themselves or I repeat myself. The doctors in my country so far haven't taken me serious. Now I hope somebody with similar experiences or somebody with a medical background can help me, because I am getting worse every day and I don't know how I can change it. It's hard to ignore, because the pressure is always there, day and night.
