Hi rgraf8, Megan here :)

For about, maybe a year now I've been experiencing some of the same symptoms you talk about. And too, I will get the strangest feeling in my head and all I can say is that it has to be as close to a seizure as you can get without having one. It's the strangest sensation and I cannot explain it to anyone. At any rate, about a week ago I noticed a sunken type area just below the crown of my skull, or maybe it's just swollen on either side, anyway it bugs me and I need to know what's going on here too. My head feels like it's constantly got pressure on it and I've been experiencing dizziness, nausea, and tenderness in the back of my head. I'm going in for a CT Scan either today or tomorrow, maybe something will show up. I really wanted to offer moral support to you my friend and let you know that I too, most definitely have that horrid pain that hits the neck when you turn it too fast. I've never found anyone else who experiences this, so I'm glad to meet you :) It's like an electric shockwave runs into your brain and you do feel like you could pass out from the pain! I have that exact same pain sometimes... Maybe we're two of a kind...

Good luck to you and I pray you get to feeling better soon and get some answers...

Hello everyone!!
First off, I can't tell you how RELIEVED I was to read all of your testimonials - I have had the same exact symptoms for ~9 months now (tinnitus, ear pressure/fullness, intermittant hearing loss,dizziness, headaches so bad I can't put my head down, and problems w/ memory& concentration) -it's really been a frustrating ordeal. I've been to ENT specialists (Harvard University grads!), had CT scans, blood tests, etc and no-one had any explanation for it, or could offer any advice or help. I haven't lost total faith in the medical community, but I certainly don't rely on them entirely.
Anyway, I've also been to my regular Dr about these symptoms several times, and she doesn't know what to do. I've started to think that I must have a rare disorder, or I'm going crazy or something - but I'm embarassed to see my doctor about this again.
I actually have some really good news!! I'd like to share with you a couple of things that have brought almost total relief to me this week, and might be worthwhile trying for yourselves.
Earlier this week I took 2 decongestant (pseudoephedrine) tabs and an ibuprofen tab - and it worked!!! I was a new person! My symptoms went away (almost 90%) and I regained my concentration. The reason I took the decongestant was because my nose was a little runny from the cold that morning, and when I went to blow my nose, my ears popped and crackled - but didn't clear. I though it'd be worth a shot to try a decongestant- and it did help!!!
I've been taking 2 decongestant tabs each morning for the last 3 days, and I'm feeling so much better now.
I'm going to mention this to my doctor because I'm concerned that my ears aren't draining properly. I've heard of this happening to some people (mainly infants) and tubes need to be surgically inserted into the ear canal to drain the x-tra fluid.
Best of luck to all of you!!
There is hope...
