For the past three weeks, I have had a persistent headache. It started right behind my left eye and was on and off. Felt like a sinus headache as I was extremely lightheaded and lethargic for a week. The ligthheadedness had subsided and now nausea has settled in. I havent vomited but i feel as though it is coming ay time. Its awesome let me tell you. The headache has persisted now for a while. It has predominantly been on my left side but shifts all over the place...left back, left front. right front etc...
Problem is that I cannot stop thinking about it. I feel metnally as though I have some sort of tumor or degenerative disease. Of course, internet research isnt helping either since it proves that I have every symptom imaginable. Anyway, I cannot seem to beat these headaches at all. Ive been taking levaquin for the sinuses and tylenol with codeine for the headaches and it doesnt seem to be working.
Went to see two doctors and one says that its a sinus infection that will take time. The other says suggests that an MRI is a reasonable thing to pursue to put my mind at ease. That may be true.
Was wondering if anyone has been inthis boat before. I feel as though Im losing this emotional and physical battle.
