Hi, I came across your post after replying to another one that has the same symptoms. I can say that you are not alone in the way you are feeling! I too have felt this way for 8 weeks and let me tell you that sounds scary I can remember reading peoples post at week 4 thinking how will I survive this? My story starts in July with bronchitis a two week period of feeling great then the flu and then bronchitis again. After that cleared my head has never felt the same. My story can be long and drawn out, especially since I have always been very active and hyper. You can find my original post on here with all of my symptoms. I have seen numerous doctors and an ENT all told me that I had anxiety and they gave me Lorazapem, which only made me feel worse, I have not taken it in 5 weeks because I felt that there was something else wrong with me, and that was what was causing my anxiety. I have never had anxiety issues before and I live a very relaxed life. Finally my doctor did a blood test and I found out I am anemic(low iron). I am told that anemia can magnify anything else that you may have and I know that there is something else. I am told sinus and allergies and have been told by other doctors and others who feel this way. My doctor told me that the mold count is very high and this is just a bad year for allergies. On top of the symptoms I have cracking/popping in my ears and nose. I had went to the ER for palps and feeling like I was about to pass out last week (I am home alone with my 4 yr old daughter during the day and all of this has me completely freaked out). The ER doctor had done more blood work to check my counts, of course they were low and this was probally why I was feeling so bad not to mention the anxiety that I now have due to all of this. I asked him about the cracking/popping in my ears and nose he took a look and said everything looks great however that does not mean that you do not have an inner ear dysfunction and sinus/allergy problems. The only thing is there is nothing that can be done about it; it has to go away on its own. He said anitbiotics will not help it. He was very nice and understanding and actually talked to me about my problems(unlike the others who wanted to give me an anxiety pill and send me on my way). My husband and my mother all have these same issues-minus the anemia-so this helps me. They have dealt with these issues for a long time and assure me that even though it does not go away for good it does get better. I too like you have thought brain tumor, along with every other disease in the book, basically because I never get sick. But trust me there are many, many people out there that feel just like us. I too was very depressed and even quit my job because I was letting this get to me. But I have now found that I have more moments of when I am like my old self. Trust me four weeks ago I was a complete mess. After numerous test I just figure it must be sinus and allergies. Just know that even though it does not seem like it now it DOES get better it just takes time. In the thread under my original post there is a reference to VN an inner ear problem. Try going to that board or do a search on foggy head and you will not believe all of the people who have the same symptoms. Just know that you are not alone and there are plenty of people to talk to until you get through it all! Hope you get to feeling better soon! :)
