Here's my follow-up after my visit to the GP. He told me to get X-rays done of my head and neck to check for sinus and spondylosis. I got them done and it seems that there's no problem with my sinus. But it turns out that I am showing signs of Early Cervical Spondylosis.

The doctor showed me a simple neck exercise to do. But I don't think that's enough. Because the pain and discomfort keeps returning intermittently.

I am going to consult a specialist doctor in this field i.e. an orthopaedic surgeon. I will let you guys know what happens.

I had similar symptoms pain in the back of head, almost fainting, pressure in the ears and then I even got ringing ears and blurry vision. I had every inch of me imaged with CTs and MRIs and nothing came back. But, one doctor just put me on antibiotics because my ear looked infected. Cured everything within a few days. Then when I came off antibiotics 2 weeks later, everything came back. My doctors wouldn't believe it was an infection because everything tested normal. After two months off antibiotics I convinced them to put me back on and I stayed on for 6 months which made me feel amazingly better, but not completely healed. Don't know if this will help anyone else but it made a huge difference for me.

I WONDER if you posted on the Lymes Forum, if you would find people going thru the same thing?

Just a thought.
