I'm new to the forum. I needed a place to vent and maybe a little reassurance.
2 years ago I started having these awful headaches. I would get dizzy and horrible vertigo and just made me feel terrible. I made an appointment with a neurologist but it was 5 months out. One day it got so bad I went into the ER and demanded them do an MRI. They did and everything came out normal. In the meantime while waiting for my neuro appt, I made an appointment with my ent, eye dr, a headache specialist. You name it, I tried it. After about
3 months they just went away and I didn't have them anymore. I stupidly cancelled my appointment.
Fast forward to now. I do have debilitating anxiety. I tried going on Lexapro last year but it actually made my anxiety worse so after being on it a few months I weaned off it. I still had anxiety but started seeing a therapist. It's still bad. We had a lot of work to do.
But now my headaches are back. And some of the other weird symptoms I'm getting is like a hot spot on my head where I feel like it's on fire. My nose is twitching. And sometimes my face goes numb mainly around my nose and mouth. I've explained this to a dr recently and they're just telling me it's my anxiety. Can all these symptoms seriously be anxiety?
I have a physical with my Primary care doctor on Wednesday so I'll be able to talk to a dr I trust more then but wanted to reach out to you all
