Hello Laura,
You are too funny. You are exactly the same as me. Right down to the panic feelings. I am sorry you had a bad experience with the oil. Our symptoms seem like they are related to sinus pressure. When I press on my head right at the top where my forehead meets my hairline I get a feeling inside my nose, and then the bump actually seems to get bigger when I start to play or obssess over it. I have been usuing nasal irrigation with a non iodized salt about a teaspoon in a small cup with warm water. I take a baby aspirator ( sucks mucous from babys noses), well I use that and flush out my nose. It sounds gross but it is what the surgeon reccomended after my surgery and he told me to keep it up whenever I am stuffed up. Then I lean side to side and forward and let any excess water flow out and then I blow my nose. You may want to try this.
I went to the doctor today but my primary was on vacation so I had to go to some other doctor. Anyway I minimized my symptoms so to avoid a CT scan and told them only of my stuffed up feeling and headaches. So I am on anibiotics now and after only two pills today I am feeling slightly better. The bump has gone down but could come back at any time which is what it seems to do. I have the feelings almost like it drains from head down my throat and sometime from my nose back up to my head. The doctor told me that the hot weather is often a culprit for sinus "stuff" especially since we go from Air conditioning to 100 degree, so the change in temperatures causes swelling of the turbinates (nasal passages). Makes sense. Today is the best I have felt and I don't know if its because of the antibiotics or because I feel psychsomatic better having seen the doctor.

I feel bad for us. We have the same exact thing. The pressure, numbness weirdness. How old are you. I am 35 and feel like I am younger, but lately I have been thinking I am too young to be feeling this bad. Last night I had a few drinks with my 80 year old aunt, and she was living it up and having a great time, and I was feeling like my head would literally explode if I drank anymore. Can't drink! Sorry the oils didnt work out. Maybe try the nasal irrigations and see if you feel any better. I have also been taking rhinocort nasal spray which seems to help at night when I am really bad. My head feels so full and heavy and when I lay down, it feels better. Well try to have a good weekend. I will check in to see how "we" are doing. Take care my friend.
