Hi Pheobe13,

Before all this began (a year and a half ago), I used to be a DJ in front of approx 1000+ people per night. I used to talk on the Mic and be the most confident person ever. Now it's as though I've had a personality transplant.

Something has caused all of these symptoms and I know that the anxiety came after all these symptoms not before. I am also worried about the fact it could be a pituitary tumor or something , although both brain MRI's are clear. Would this kind of thing show up without them looking for it?

I don't know if you have any of these symptoms but I am currently suffering with :

Waking up 06:00 every morning with broken sleep (neigher awake/asleep from 6am - strange thoughts run through mind automatically)
Vivid dreams and nightmares every night
Random Episodic Anxiety
Random Episodic Panic Attacks
Random Episodic Depression
Crying outbusts for no reason
Extremely sore neck and shoulders (worse when in bed)
Sore Leg calf muscles and knee cap joints (worse at rest)
Burning Eyes but no redness
Puffy Eyes
Thick bushy eyebrows
Hoarse voice (loss of lower ranges)
Discolored phlegm (sputum) - worse when lying horizontal
Tinnitus
Dizziness
Carpal Tunnel (mild)
Clumsiness
Short term memory loss
TMJ
Face fullness episodic jaw pressure
Forehead pressure
Random short headaches
Neck pain/forehead pressure worse when lying down with pressure on back of head.
Intolerence to Antidepressants of SSRI kind (can tolorate Tricyclics but dont do anything)
Nasal openings swell and extremely painfull to touch for days (one sided)
Post nasal drip
Periodic Belching
Periodic Excessive Flatulance
Cant walk into large buildings (mall's, supermarkets etc)
Cant tolerate excessive loud noise
Muscle twitching
Strange drugged feeling which comes and goes throughout the day

Take care,

Mike.

I have EVERY single symptoms you have. Its wierd kinda. Every single one. I have been suffering with these symptoms for 7 years now. Nothing has come of this so far. I am very curious about the possibility of a pituitary tumor. I have had CT's and MRI's however, neither were specificly of the pituitary. Just the entire brain. Physicians can request blowen up views of the pituitary. Sometimes they will also do an MRI of the pituitary then order another MRI of the pituitary with contrast to see if there is a difference between the two images.

I have also ben taking 50mcg's of cytomel/day to rule out thyroid disease. I have been doing this for 3 weeks and feel a bit better but not that much.

I am also looking into the possibility of chronic sinus infection. Never really thought about this as an option but my good friends mother had symptoms similar to mine and after having all her sinus tissue removed felt 100% better.

Make sure you keep us posted with how your doing. Were all in this together and I need all the help I can get to diagnose whats wrong.
Hi,

Thanks for the replies. I also have a load of other symptoms with this thing such as Depression, TMJ (Jaw disorder), very sore upper back and sore neck. The pressure builds up behing my eyes and nose. When I see someone coming or have to talk to someone, I panic, dizziness gets worse, I can't think straight, jaw tightens and I feel like I need to get away. It's weird! I look at them and sense how nervous they are and I think it's because they can sense that I am nervous? (does that make any sense?)

I know my breathing doesnt seem right when I'm talking, it's as though it doesnt feel as though im able to breath properly

I have neck pain and always seem to be leaning forward when sitting down. I've had a cervical MRI and Brain MRI but nothing much came of it apart from slight loss of disc height at C5 & C6. Comments were that it was normal of someone my age (32). Do you start falling to bits from age 30+?

Another strange symptom is that when I'm sitting talking to someone, their body doesn't look as though it's connected to their head. Yes, I know this might sound stupid. But it's like I loose the center of my vision and people become distorted. This really worries me.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated. I cant go on living like this!

Take care,

Mike.
