Strange visual disturbances / static, pressured and thick feeling in head / tinnitus / full feeling and sensations in mainly left ear /

Hi all. I've seen a few posts regarding some of my syptoms and wondered if anyone can shed any light or give advice. These are my symptoms - static and general full feeling in my skull every day 24/7, tinnitus, sometimes nausea, sometimes random stabbing pains in the head (mainly top of my head towards the back), strange disturbances with my vision but almost feels it's from the top of or back of my eye lids and eye muscles, severe insomnia and sometimes feel like I've stepped off a fairground ride. I also don't feel my eye sight is clear anymore. My ears are apparently fine, slight high pitch hearing loss and my eye test was fine. Also just had an MRI on the head and that was fine???

  • I have all this and i put it down to anxiety cos ive had it a few years. I get very stressed and worry alot so now ended up with more problems. Its not a nice feeling to be honest and can be scary :(

  • Have you seen a neurologist?

  • No not yet... had an MRI and will push for a CT scan. Maybe a neurologist should be my next step.

  • Hey lisap78!

    I've had 24/7 head pressure for 2 years now. Besides that also ear fullness and random headaches (which worsens things). Standing up I sometimes get dizziness and disorientation. When I walk a long distance I get really tired. I also have fatigue, I'm tired all the time and I can't get a rest, not even with a nice 8-hour sleep. I haven't woke up rested for 2 years. It's frustrating and it's killing my daily routines. It's really annoying to have to live like that.

    Other than that, life is good. I have a great girlfriend with full of support, great parents and graet friends. Financially, my status could be better, but I'm still a student, master's student to be exact. I help my mother with her job from time to time and she gives me lunch money, hehe.

    I've been to several doctors, lately my psychiatrist said that I have a mild depression and anxiety problems. I would agree, but I don't think they are the cause of my "health" issue. I've been under a lot of stress for the past 3-5 years trying to achive my bachelor's degree. Now that that's done, I can finally relax.

    I was thinking. I'm reading a lot about these things, trying to figure out what is wrong with me. There are a lot of people with similar if not the same simptoms across the internet. In my opinion, we should connect somehow and try to help one another. A facebook gropu would be perfect for that. Let me know, what do you think?

    Cheers and get well!
