I'm new to the forum. I have been dealing with allergies, auto-immune problems, and sinus problems for a decade. But this year was terrible.
Recently (2015-2016) I have had a new kind of headache -- a recurring intense pressure in my eyes, nose and face, loud tinnitus and stabbing pain in one eye. It is often worse at night.
The headaches last for days on end. They are accompanied by a general extreme fatigue and feeling of sickness. I often have sinus congestion and then drainage. Sometimes I literally feel like I might lose consciousness, as Argal (on here) reported happened to them. A few times I have had to pull over while driving because I felt like I was going to black out. On two occasions I vomited after two days with the headaches.
In 2016, so far I spent one half of the days in every month this year with these headaches (according to my health diary) with the exception of August and September, which were better. I work as a technical writer. I have had to take time off from full-time work because of this. I am very worried because I am my only source of income.
I can totally empathize with all the headache/sinus/tinitus sufferers on here. Sometimes I wonder if we are all being exposed to something that is new in the environment that is making us sick in this manner.
My Lyme tests were not conclusive, but I have yet to have the more expensive detailed test they can take. An ENT ordered a CAT scan but I have been putting it off due to my other immune issues.
Best to all,
