Hi all: What a great forum! I’m a 28 year old male, and have suffered from headaches (migraines?) intermittently for the past 1.5 years. I will get a 2-3 week period of chronic daily headaches which will then go away for a month until it comes back. The headaches began as tension-type (like a band), but now really have no pattern. Recently, I had a near fainting experience which drove me to the ER. The CT was clear (as one had been a year before), and I’ve made an appointment with a neurologist (none available until mid-May). It’s thrown me into this anxiety feedback loop, which just makes the headaches more pronounced (even when the pain number doesn’t exceed 4, as is often the case). Now, I’m feeling daily dizziness; it’s not that I’m about to fall over but the reality around me seems very light, if that makes sense. This has been a confusing change in my symptoms, as I’m having this dizziness without headaches.
Perhaps they’re two separate incidents, but I can’t help seeing them as intertwined and dangerous, even if the CT showed they’re not.
Any thoughts of relief?
