Hey everyone, this is my first post on here. I've never gotten anxiety before but since April this year my life kinda changed, I've never been ill or anything but in April I did.
I'm 35 and have 5 children, youngest is 2, eldest 17.
At the moment I get ear fullness and head pressure, not painful just very intense head pressure. I get it every day on and off. Some days are slightly better than others but it's there every day. I also get a swaying off balance feeling. I went to see the doctor and a couple times they said they have no idea what it could be, maybe sinus pressure(never had sinus problems before and nose wasn't runny or anything) then because decongestants that they advised didn't work I went back. I saw a doctor who said its Eustachian tube dysfunction and gave me steroid nasal spray which I'm still using every day, twice a day. I got it from her 3 weeks ago. I don't know if it helped but I still get head pressure, now it's even sometimes painful, dull ache.
This is how it all started,
In April I got very ill suddenly, shaky, heart palpitations, dizzy, hypoglycaemic symptoms, completely out of it really. Before this I had never been ill like this. Turned out I was severely deficient in iron, b12 and vitamin D. I was horribly ill for a while, then the vitamins kicked in and I started to feel much better thank God.
But that's when my head pressure and swaying feeling started.
I didn't even think it could be anxiety related as I thought that would be all in my head? I do get very depressed since I got so ill, it scared me as I have small children and they need me, I'm 35 but feel like a 70 yr old, didn't go out as I was scared I'll get dizzy and out of it again.
But now I get depressed because of this ear fullness and head pressure, could it actually be anxiety??
Also, I feel very weird when I go into a department store or supermarket, like needing to strain my eyes and my head gets all weird with pressure, it's just all worse in a shoping place! Like I can't focus? Could that be anxiety too? :/
Sometimes my legs feels so weak like I'll collapse, hate feeling this way and don't know where to turn?! Tbh don't feel like telling the doctor as he'll say oh it's anxiety that's all even thought I feel like it's something else??
Anyone else ever had this or have this? I don't like telling my family as it'll only worry them or they'll think I'm going on as always I go on about how I feel awful every day with head pressure
