If this started since you've been in this house... part of me thinks it might have something to do with allergies. If its a brand new house, it might have something to do with chemicals or materials used to make the house.. if its an older house.. perhaps some sort of mold among many other possibilies. You may need someone to come in and somehow test the house, but I'm not sure who you would go to for that. You can get an EXTENSIVE and COMPLETE Allergy test done with an Allergist. It might be advisable to try and live somewhere else for a month or more and see if your sypmtoms go away (But not in a simular house!). Get an XRAY of your Sinuses to see if there is something going on in there. If you think you've been congested in any way you can try decongestants. If you have a sinus pressure build up in your head, that can prove to be fatal in some instances. Part of me is also suspicious of TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome)

If you haven't had an MRI done on your brain, you can get that done. You may want to have an MRI of your neck done as well since some syptoms in the body can be related to neck problems. You could also get an MRA of your brain and an MRA of your neck as well to take a look at your arteries. I think they can do that test or something simular to take a look at the heart as well.

If you haven't seen a neurologist or neurosurgeon yet, you may want to do this, they may have a LOT more insight into your situation if it has something to do with your head. Ask your doctor to start giving you names of specialists that might help you start ruling out every possibility of what this could be. See whoever else might be suggested as well.

The important thing is not to give up until you find the answer. Get extreamly persistant with this doctor to get them to help you more. You don't have to just accept the outcome of what they say. If a test comes back normal or inconclusive, start complaining a lot so that they know how serious you are so that they will take you seriously... Always ask what other tests you could take or who the next kind of specialist is that you should see for your situation. You have the right to request for certain tests to be done. You are not alone, many people get lost and scared when trying to figure out what is wrong with them, including me, just hang in there and be a fighter for your life, you are worth it in every way. Sometimes doc's just don't know either, so they might need a little push OR you may want to see another doctor for a second opinon.

Getting a second opionon when you hit a road block is sometimes helpful. I've heard of peopele being to as many as 4 doctors (perhaps even more) just to try and get their situation figured out. Eventually by continually going to other docs for their input, one of them will (hopefully) know what to do or who to referr you to. Good luck to you, and please get on this ASAP, you are worth it, be aggressive in finding out what is going on with you, and if they want to try and send you off on your merry way, that's when you say NO! there is something very wrong with me, you must help me! Be bold, but be respective as well as these doctors are trying to help you.

So all in all, you could get an extensive allergy test with an allergiest, an Xray of your head/sinuses to check for infection and presure build up; you can ask to have TMJ ruled out, MRI of NECK and HEAD and MRA of the NECK and HEAD, and perhaps something like that for the heart, but I don't know much about the heart to know if it would be related to your symptoms. You can see a Neurosurgeon or Neurologist or any other recommended specialist (perhaps something like a doc with Infectious Diseases, Rheumatologist or Orthopedic docs). You can also ask for extensive blood labs to be done to see if it has something to do with your chemistry. Remember to be persistant, and don't give up. Become a fighter for your life and be optamistic for a cure. Don't get discouraged if one or several doors close on you.. just keep moving forward for the answer. If you start feeling down, try to remember what I said about being optamistic and a fighter. Have Faith! God Bless you and please keep us posted, I wish you a quick and speedy diagnosis and recovery!!!
