I guess I'll just start by providing my symptoms, a little history about myself and what tests I've recently had done if that's ok.
For the last 3-4 months...
1) Dizzy spells or "jolts" of dizziness, lightheaded.
2) Off balance in the mornings.
3) Occassional low-grade fevers of 99.2 (especially after eating dinner).
4) Pressure behind eyes.
5) Head/brain feels very spaced out and foggy all the time.
6) Left eye waters a lot.
7) Occassional bouts of fatigue, tiredness.
9) Hot flashes in the evening.
10) Nose runs, stuffiness, clear mucous, etc.
GAD, GERD, IBS, Tourettes w/ head jerks, Chronic Sinusitis, Allergic Rhinitis, Deviated Septum (left side), Gastritis, Panic Disorder, Cervial Arthritis (w/bone spur), OCD, Hypochondria, Lactose Intolerance, bouts of insomnia (early awakening), etc. Former alcoholic/smoker (stopped drinking/smoking a long time ago). Took several Levaquin/Cipro many times for prostate issues. Had a few bouts of depression in my life. I tend to have a lot of weird things that happen to me during sleep or just before falling asleep (ie; "sleep starts" (loud bang/flash of light), Crazy dreams, head jolts, panic attacks, vertigo-like attack and other very strange things I can't even begin to describe.
Tests I've had done...
You name it, I've probably had it. Seriously, I'm sure I haven't had every test but I've had shoeboxes full of texsts done over the years. Recently I had a head MRI, cervical MRI, a HUGE assortment of blood tests done over several months (including some rare/unusual tests), Been to an Opthamolist, Neurologist, etc.
The low-grade fevers I have off and on for decades. I have seen many doctors and nobody seems to have a clue as to what causes them. They always seem to be worse after eating the evening meal. Here's a real-life record I kept one day of my temperature...

I'm not doing vigorous workouts or anything. Mostly just sitting at the desk or doing routine things. This has been going on for as far back as I can remember.
Not sure what else to say. I guess I'd just be interested in knowing if anyone here has ever experienced any (or all) of this, if you can relate to it and just any other feedback you can provide.
Much appreciated!, Seth
