Hi everyone, happy to have found this forum! I'm 28 from Montreal, Canada.
It all started at the end of April 2012. I just woke up on a normal Saturday and felt some kind of a pressure all over my head, I got up and simply couldn't process what exactly what was going on. Had weird pulsations as well in the head. It just didn't feel like it was myself anymore. It felt like a very bad hangover. At first I thought that its due the 2 - 3 drinks I took the night before, so I decided to support it and resume my day with 2 Tylenols. A few hours in wasn't getting better and I was literally feeling that I'm about to pass out... I was in the house and twice within the hour I was sure I'm about to pass out, I run to my bed and lie down. Being in bed felt very good - symptoms weren't as present. The next day, same symptoms... I was basically a zombie. I seemed fine from the exterior but deep inside I wasn't really there. It's as if I was seeing life through a fish bowl, could literally stare at a wall for hours.... pulsations in the head, pressure around the head... around the eyes, sometime pressure around the nose.... I can honestly say that I wouldn't wish this to my worst enemy. I felt completely light headed and floating in a very weird way. I had very poor balance, couldn't stand for long periods of time...forget about driving a car or even being present in a car... couldn't even stand for very long or enter a retail store... I was going nuts. Actually while standing it was the worst.... I also sometime felt some pressure around the ears - as if I was taking taking off in a plane.... but the most unpleasant was having this pression in the head - mostly in the back of the head -... it felt like im floating... totally light headed... not totally present or myself. Awful feel. Feels like a migraine, sometime headache, sometime some sinus infection, sometime I can't even describe it. I know that after browsing the forums, it seems that allot of people had similar experiences for months...

I started having some panic attacks... let me tell you that Google searches didn't help much... it was just creating crazy anxiety. It tells you the worst of the worst.
I tried taking a glass of wine, I felt that it helped me a little... then I took a second one and perhaps it was mental but it's as if it froze the head pressure for a while...but not for long.... Once the alcohol effect left, it was the same - sometime worst.

I've decided to go see a general doctor about 2 weeks later, he diagnosed me with labyrinthitis - inner ear infection and prescribed me with an ANTI-VERTIGO drug that unfortunately didn't do anything at all. The symptoms kept on going and going - The doctor said that a Scan is not required and this type of virus can last for weeks - sometime 2 - 3 months.... just try to be patient and relax.. avoid stress... He apparently diagnosed quite a few cases similar to mine over the years.

I couldn't function for work... it was torture. It's not that it was hurting, it was as If I was living with a helmet on my head..a very heavy and tight one.... the worst was explaining to people what is wrong with you. You seem totally fine from the exterior.
WEEK 3 , WEEK 4... it wasn't getting better. Seen another doctor for a second opinion.... same diagnosis..probably labyrinthitis and a scan is not required... they told me to relax.... I was going nuts! pulsations, head pressure always present. Felt like passing out very often.. scary.
The worst is not really knowing what is going on with you... and reading GOOGLE searches about a possible tumor, etc...
WEEK 5 - Started to have better days once in a while... some gave me hope that I'm actually getting better.... but pulsations, head pressures still very much present - Felt like a zombie still... feeling that I will faint still present.. especially when entering big stores or standing up for long period of times.

WEEK 6- started to feel better... became positive. However after a little celebration and a few drinks one night, the next day I had a complete come back. Let me tell you that this specific day was probably one of the worst of my life.... I had a panic attack anxiety and started thinking that this curse would never go away.... I decided to stay away from any alcohol. It's as if everything came back to DAY 1.

WEEK 7 - Same feeling - real torture - Everything came back. No more alcohol for me after.
WEEK 8 - started to feel slightly better. however symptoms still present, just not as bad.
WEEK 9 - started having better days for longer periods... but some were as bad... very random.
WEEK 10 - some days I almost felt cured, some it was coming back out of nowhere for no special reason.
Still the same symptoms pretty much just a lighter level most of the time.

WEEK 11 - WEEK 12 - It slowly started feeling better with good days lasting for a few days. little head pression - pulsations present most of days but nothing compared to what I had to suffer weeks ago.
It was indeed going better.

WEEK 13 - I almost felt cured... most of the days I was fine, however it did happen sometime that I felt little symptoms... but the level was insignificant. I was sure its coming to an over.. my life started being normal again... work, friends, etc.
WEEK 14 UNTIL TODAY AUGUST 30TH (today) .. The head pressure came back a little for the past few days, not as bad as the first weeks but not as good as the last week- I do feel little pulsations around the head sometime as well. My eyes feel swollen, sometime I feel some pressure around the nose - a nasal thing I guess. I do usually suffer from allergies around that season (ragweed) perhaps this doesn't help as well and triggers even more.... but thank god that I DON'T feel like passing out as much.... from a scale from 1 to 10 I would say I'm at 7.5 today compared to 1/10 on the first 3 weeks.
Definitely not fully recovered, but feeling better. Its hard to cope these last few days with that pression in the head, very uncomfortable... I just can't seem to concentrate as this is over taking allot of my energy... the pulsations happen time to time as well in the back of the head... but again, nothing compared to the level of the first weeks. It's almost the fourth month....

I remember that about one or two years ago I had a similar experience that lasted for almost a week... I felt pretty much like a zombie with weird pression in the head...but didn't experience the effects going as far as thinking that i'm going to pass out. After these few days / a week of this past experience it just disappeared and life resumed.
I'm planning to go see a doctor in the next 2 weeks to follow up, but I do feel better...but it could be even better if it goes away. I want my life back.
Anybody has had or is having anything similar?

Alec M,

I've had chronic head pressure, random ear pain, tinnitus, sometimes heart pain, loss of balance since February. My life completely turned upside down. My symptoms have gotten somewhat better. I'm in the process of self treating for Lyme Disease. I got tested but it didnt come back fully positive. The tests are not good. I would get tested. I've narrowed it down to either Lyme or exposure to mold. The pressure in my head is unreal. Sometimes it hurts sometimes it doesn't. My MRI, CAT scan, and all blood work came back clear. 5 ER visits.

Hi,
I too have been experiencing the same symptoms. I can deal with the pressure and pain but the lightheadedness is insidious. I dont feel like myself when I talk to people. Its like Im floating. Ive been taking anti-biotics and prednisone for inflamation for 2 weeks and still no solution. Im hoping this is not the new normal.

Hello, I totally understand what you have gone through, I too suffer for close to 2 years with problems similar to yours, I am female 36 now and it really thank God for feeling good now, I started with pressure in my head, blurred vision, dizzy, every single thing that you mention I felt, I thought I was going to die because no one told me what I had, I had to go numerous times to the emergency room and other Drs, just to be told that it was stress that I had to calm down, I even felt a few panic attacks and started to become anxious because I was afraid something was going to happen to me the Dr put me in different types of allergy medicines she thought it was seasonal allergies with all the medicines she tried even nasal sprays different types but still I felt the same I couldn't breath I felt that my head was full of air inside I literally walked side ways very wobbly, my ears were block and it was painful behind my ears it was terrible, I had all sorts of tests every thing came out good I was sent to an allergist,Also every thing good, finally they sent me to get x- Rays CT scans also every thing was ok, I was hopeless I even faked that I was about to faint in the emergency room in order to be seen and have more test done, finally they said y was suffering from a terrible sinus I started to get antibiotics and other nasal sprays, also before all this I was put in Xanax which I never took because I knew I wasn't suffering from depression, when I thought that it was the end of my problem I felt good for some time and then the symptoms came back worst, the Dr finally referred me to the ENT Dr, he said it was ear pressure he poked inside in order to relief the pressure but nothing then he said he had to put some kind of tubes inside but he wanted a hearing tests and a balance test since I was all out of balance so I had it done, he said I don't understand every thing is ok on your hearing test he told me I think you are over stressed you just have to take it easy, I came out crying I really started to become depressed because y had so much done and no one knew, but thinking that I was going to die and leave my 3 children was I guess the most terrible feeling I had a last appointment with the nose Dr and I remember, that I prayed and I told God this is it I can't take it anymore, even thinking about it now makes me cry thinking that there are so many people going thorough tough things and our faith starts to go away, so next morning I prayed and said to God already 2 years I don't know what to do anymore, I said If you want to take me please do so I don't want to suffer with this anymore I close my eyes and cried then the Drs came in and said what's going on I'm sure they felt really bad when they saw me, I told them every thing that I had told the other Drs, He said don't cry we will find out he put something to check inside my nose and he said what you have is a deviated septum, he said I can not believe all the Drs that you have seen and no one told you, he said I am so sorry for what you have gone through, he said come back next week we'll do the surgery I was so anxious for that day to arrive I couldn't sleep Waiting for the day, finally I had the surgery done I know it was painful and I was all bruised but I can tell you now, I feel like I was born again all those terrible thing disappeared Thanks to The Lord, I know I feel a little light headed sometimes for being to stress out being a working mom with kids. But I am so happy now. I hope you guys all the best and keep you all in my prayers. God Bless you!

Thanks for your positive response. I have had xrays, CT scans, seen a neurologist and finally I have an appointment with a ENT tomorrow. I am hopeful it will come back with something simple.

Hey viviesro, I have been having the lightheadedness in very long spurts, months at a time.  Nose congestion all the time, clicking noise in ears every time I swallow.  I saw an ENT about a year ago that told me I had a deviated septum, but I didn't think it could cause the lightheadedness.  He said he wanted to do surgery but I have been very apprehensive about going under since I have never had surgery before.  I have too been praying to God for a solution and asked him to take me instead of living this way.  Thanks for your post and if you have any more insight, I would like to hear it.

Hello Aaronwolfe, I'm sorry for what you are going through, in my case I think that was what was causing the lightheadedness, have you had any more tests done like X-rays CT Scans or ear test? I was congested all the time I can say every day, I remember having some relief only when I lay down, I can also remember at times a clicking sound inside my nose when one of the nostrils was opening I started to breath again without any problem but the pain behind my ears close to where the ears end the bottom part was always there, every time I mention the congestions Drs came to the conclusion that it was sinus, it has been 17 month that I had the surgery and I feel great, my brother in law suffers from sinus and he says he gets lightheaded all the time, do you also feel what I mention the pressure inside the head? sometimes it was only on one side, you should consider the surgery if it's something that will help you.

I'm having the same lightheadedness, head pressure. I've had this for 7 months now. Been to an ENT, Neurotologist and just yesterday went to a Neurologist. The ENT and Neurotologist both thought I was having chronic migraine and the Neurologist yesterday confirmed that. He put me on Cymbalta which I started yesterday. We'll see how it goes. I feel this way about 75% of the time. The Neurologist said that the pressure and lighheadednes is the "aura" of the migraines. I'm guessing this is all stress related??? I've had Xrays, an MRI and bloodwork - all came back clear, which is the good thing. Now it's just a matter of finding the right medication for the migraines. Yay.... fun fun :)

This has happened to me the last two years. It also happened two years in a row about 5-10 years ago. It seems to happen in the spring or fall.
I'll feel this weird sensation in my head and can't really describe it. It's sort of a numb or buzzing feeling, but there is no noise, just a feeling. The past few days, I've had pressure around my nose/eyes. I get lightheaded and like someone said above, I feel better if I'm in bed. I also have this odd pulsating nose feeling. I know it has to be sinus-related! :( I am taking Clairitin-D. This is my 3rd day taking it. I'm hoping it kicks in soon today because I have plans tonight! lol
I went to the ENT several months ago and had a test for Benign Positional Vertigo and Meniere's disease, but I don't have those.
Someone above mentioned allergies or exposure to mold. I wonder if there are molds I am sensitive that are prevalent in spring and fall.

I am so amazed how many others have this head problem. I kept telling my doctor my symptoms and I never really thought he got it so I printed off this form and took it into his office and showed it to him. Wow, he could not stop reading it.

He was so amazed at how may of us suffer with this.

My head is bad tonight. It will start about 7:30 every evening and sometimes through the day. I get some crackling in my right ear sometimes too!

I'm very relieved to read that there are other people that are going through the same experience as me. I have it now and it just feels like random pressure on any side of my head, it's so odd, I can clearly remember the first day it started happening. It was a Tuesday night, I got home from playing soccer with a couple of friends. I just felt a random headache and decided it was time for me to go to sleep. It went away for a little but it soon returned not allowing me to sleep. I took ibuprofen but that didn't completely eliminate the pressure on my head. It's been happening ever since, I don't know what the cause of this is, but I'm glad I'm not alone.

Alec M,

Looking at your post, I thought I had unknowingly posted it because you describe my symptoms with scary accuracy. I sympathize with you my friend. I am on week four of this hell and I am running out of patience and have been overcome by absolute frustration. My headache/pressure as you had mentioned shifts around and sometimes exhibits strange symptoms..at one point, I though it was allergies. I am currently seeing a Neurologist (a very nice lady and doctor) who thinks I am suffering from a migraine variant. BTW, I have had an MRI and a battery of blood tests. I sincerely sympathize with all of you, and selfishly, I am comforted that I am not alone. As someone had mentioned here, externally you look fine, but the torture and torment is internal and in your head. I pray that all of you get well and achieve some comfort. I promise to post any information that could help upon my doc follow-up.

Hey all
I'm new here and if this is out of place, then I dare say someone will tell me, but I'd like to tell you a little story.
I suffered with what I called 'Facial pressure' for years as a child. Was told it was imaginary and that I was a hypochondriac. There was nothing wrong. Add 20 yrs of awful, just awful headaches, numbness and 'facial pressure' and non hearing dr's. I'm driving down the road and the lights go out. Can't see. Pulled over called the wife to come get me, she rushed me to the hospital. They did a scan
Seems all that 'pressure' and pain wasn't imaginary. I had a brain tumour. Luckily it is slow growing but it was blocking the natural flow of fluid within the brain causing hydrocephalus, pressure behind my eyes, in my face and awful headaches. It seems the tumour is growing to close to bits I need but part of it was removed and a plastic tube (a shunt)was inserted into my brain to relieve the pressure. All was going OK, not perfect but ok, till last year.
I had a BAD headache, vomited and collapsed. Again, my amazing wife, rushed me off to hospital. They put a pressure gauge in my head, it was to be there for 3 days to monitor the pressures. After the first night I was rushed into theatre the following morning, as my pressures were over 10 times the 'normal' limits. Since then I've had 3 more major brain operations and things are far from good. After the first surgery I returned to work within a month, but since the second surgery I have not been able to return to work, that surgery was more than 12 months ago. It isn't safe for me to drive.
This has been one hell of a journey, one I wouldn't wish on anybody (OK so maybe a few) but I do wonder if all those years ago when those symptoms first showed if a dr had actually followed up what was going on rather than just labelling me a nutter or a hypochondriac, how different the journey could have been.

My advice, if you have questions, if you are not sure, follow it through. Get the scans, have the tests. Find out for yourself. DO NOT just put up with it, because in the long run you will pay for it. I paid and paid dearly It maybe something simple and insignificant, but as much as the medical fraternity make out they know it all, you know your body better than anybody. DO NOT let them tell you its nothing, have the scans, get the proof.

Glad I found this forum

I've been having really similar symptoms to the original poster and few others on this thread. This is week 5 now! have light-headedness kinda like a floating feeling most notable when walking accompanied by a strange head pressure feeling that comes and goes but seems to be always there slightly. i don't really feel pain but - more like a numb buzzing feeling and pressure around my head.. sometimes most noticeable in different places like my face or side or top. sometimes feels like i'm wearing an invisible helmet. my ears have a feeling of fullness too. the lightheaded feeling feels like i'm a little drunk . i feel a bit removed from reality actually. when i'm shopping at the supermarket or out in a restaurant with a group of friends is when i feel most out of whack. my eyes had trouble keeping track of things almost like i'm stoned .. it's not so noticed when i'm on bed or when i'm resting my head on the back on the couch watching tv .. but when my head is not supported i notice the lightheaded feeling and usually the head pressure feeling. sometimes the head pressure is very notable and i can feel my heartbeat in my head though.

I had a ct scan done 2 weeks ago and apparently had some sinusitis - but only a small amount of mucus in my sinuses and some hypertrophy of the turbinates (rhinitis) .. so was but on a 10 day antibiotics course and some steroid spray .. i thought it was going away but it didn't - i don't know what i'm experience is actually sinus related. my ears still feel full though and i can hear mucus in my tubes or something when i swallow or move my jaw ...but i don't have a runny nose at all. i just keep clearing my through a lot

This all started some kind of viral infection i think - i had a light fever and hot/cold sensations for a 2 day period and then this all started. I'm usually a very healthy person - go the gym and exercise and eat pretty healthy but i have had to put exercise on hold now and it's making me depressed. i really want to get healthy again but don't think i can workout in this state ...

one post mentioned a deviated septum but i actually had mine fixed 5 years ago so i know that can't be the issue

i'd be interested to hear if any of the posters got any answers our found relief ...
maybe its just a weird virus that i have that makes you feel like this? or maybe migraine? i'm not sure ...

Hi there. This is my first post and I seem to be having very similar symptoms. I am 47 years old and live in Queensland Australia. It all started about six months ago when i had return to ireland on a family matter. I fractured my ankle 2 weeks before the flight. A couple of days before my flight it presented like a dull sinus type headache I had one episode of dizziness I got some antibiotics and completed my trip. The strange pressure and feelings in my head continued for a few weeks. Then one day at work I had a sudden loss of balance and feeling I was going to faint. I sat down for a few minutes and then continued to work feeling really strange head sensations and my sinuses where opening and closing. On my way home I had another episode and had to pull off the road and ring an ambulance as I was sure that I was about to pass out. Bloods ecg mri and ct scans show nothing abnormal. It's now been 5 months since the first issue and about 2 mths since the work incident. Every day I have varying degrees of the head pressure ranging from 2 to 7/10 accompanied by light headedness some dizziness. The fainting feelings have almost gone as I have now diagnosed the dizziness as some form of vertigo. I had thought I was slowly getting better but today I had another episode of extreme dizziness which actually worsened on lying down. I also had the strange sinus feelings which include a need to swallow and blocked nasaI passages. I believe it's these attacks that bring on anxiety and the feeling of passing out. This has caused me to have 4 visits to ER and my local hospital putting me on a do not admit list. I have been treated like a hypochondriac with major anxiety issues.

The worst passed after about 10 mins and when I sat up I felt I was about to fall over but I found my balance and once up the dizziness went leaving the now normal pressure in the right side of my head. The tests make me fairly confident that I won't die from whatever it is but it makes living pretty miserable

I am currently being treated for migraine but as yet no light at the end of the tunnel. I sympathize with you all and hope we all can get the help we need. I am hoping it's all stress related and will eventually pass.

Hi I have read many of these forums and I to have these same concerns and have many tests MRI cat scan blood work! And so far the only thing slightly abnormal was an ANA test. Doesn't mean a whole lot according to the doctor I saw two days ago. So my question... Has anyone here had a RNA and a PCR test I have been reading a ton and I know these two tests show viral infections. I am curious does anyone have experience with these? I want to request them at my next visit I feel so tired and completely sick of feeling this way! It's so difficult to do the smallest task. I was really excited because all these symptoms subsided for four weeks but now they are back... So very bummed.

Hi. Just an update on my condition, I have had many other tests since my last post including nuclear bone scan, mri neck, hearing and balance test. My symptoms have lessened how ever physical exercise and movement seem to bring them back. Any more than one hour of physical activity and my head pain and light headedness return and I need to rest. This is followed by the sinus issues and remains with me for about 24hrs. The tests have shown osteoarthritis in the neck with 2.5mm spurs and possible compression of the nerves. My balance test showed a 37% deterioration in the left vestibular nerve. This explains the vertigo symptoms but no one is stating the cause, my ent specialist thinks it is for me some kind of infection probably a virus. I am starting physio to retrain my brain to cope with the change in the left vestibular. I will also be getting an eye specialist to check for further nerve damage. all in all my symptoms have improved and i feel that I have proven that anxiety was not the cause. I will continue searching for answers.

Hi everyone,

I've been having the described symptoms as well, your descriptions match my symptoms 100% !!

My doctor suggested I tried the Neilmed Neti Pot as he thinks it's a sinus-related thing.

I've been feeling much better, not sure if I'm having a good couple of weeks or if this is really helping me out.

I've been using it twice a day.

Lali knowledge, did you ever figure out what was wrong? My ANA tested positive also.

I have been having some of the SAME issues!! I moved into a new house last August, after then I started have HORRIBLE sinus issues. My ears always felt full & hurt & I would have headaches for about an hour after I woke up. I got antibiotics from the doctor, & felt fine until after they were finished. After that I started having lots of pressure behind my nose, eyes & forehead. I started having a ringing noise in my right ear & would often hear what sounded like rocks clicking together in the same Ear. Then I would get the ringing in my left ear at times. I've also been able to hear my pulse in my left ear for MONTHS. (I started takin some Magnesium supplements & sometimes it goes away)
A few months back I was having a bad night of anxiety issues, (from worrying about all my sinus issues) & was having a rough time sleeping. I had managed to doze off at one point, when I heard a loud POP & it felt like someone had hit me in the nose with a pillow. (I felt it, but it didn't hurt) I told my doctor about it & she didn't at all seem concerned. And when I complained about my ears hurting at my last appointment, she said she didn't see anything, infection wise, that should be making them hurt.
But the past few days the left side of my face seems very sensitive to the touch, all around my eye, temple & ear. And for the past 2 days, I have short spells where I feel like I might possibly pass out, just out of the blue, which I assume is just a dizzy spell. I have been trying to use a saline wash, to rinse out my sinuses, but they are so badly swollen, that the solution won't even flow thru my sinuses like it should. It just comes out the same nostril.
I have not felt much like myself the past few months. I just wish WHATEVER all this is would finally go away!
I also wanted to add that we did find common mold in my daughters bedroom closet, which is right next to ours. So I don't know if this is caused from Mold, or it's allergies, or what. My husband has said that the nights he is home, (he drives a truck for a living) that he wakes up with a headache, too.

i have had very similar symptoms to sweeptheleg:

"I've been having really similar symptoms to the original poster and few others on this thread. This is week 5 now! have light-headedness kinda like a floating feeling most notable when walking accompanied by a strange head pressure feeling that comes and goes but seems to be always there slightly. i don't really feel pain but - more like a numb buzzing feeling and pressure around my head.. sometimes most noticeable in different places like my face or side or top. sometimes feels like i'm wearing an invisible helmet. my ears have a feeling of fullness too. the lightheaded feeling feels like i'm a little drunk . i feel a bit removed from reality actually. when i'm shopping at the supermarket or out in a restaurant with a group of friends is when i feel most out of whack. my eyes had trouble keeping track of things almost like i'm stoned .. it's not so noticed when i'm on bed or when i'm resting my head on the back on the couch watching tv .. but when my head is not supported i notice the lightheaded feeling and usually the head pressure feeling. sometimes the head pressure is very notable and i can feel my heartbeat in my head though."

today i saw an ENT and he told me he thinks its allergy related and gave me allegra and flonase. i will start them tomorrow. i am also on antibiotics. i have been having issues for a week now and its driving me crazy. all labs and tests are normal so lets pray this will fix it. anyone else tried these meds with success?
