Hi. I am new to this board and I hope I can get some answers or, at least, find someone else to talk to. I have always had problems with headaches when the weather changed. This June, the weather went from cold to very hot and humid. I started getting headaches every day, as usual, and waited for the weather to plateau. It did. I still got headaches every day for about a month. Nothing a few Ibuprofen couldn't handle and I didn't take them every day. I also usually got a funny pressure/pre-headache feeling. So the headaches stopped, but now I have pressure in my sinuses, the top of my head and an achey neck, at times. (Probably from stress and worry). I also am dizzy and lightheaded with a weird brain fog feeling almost all the time. I went to my Dr. in August. She thought sinus infection and gave me meclizine (didn't help) and a course of antibiotics (didn't help). I went back last week because it is to the point that I can't work and I lost my job. I am a nurse and have to be thinking clearly! So the Dr tells me that it is anxiety without doing a CT scan or MRI. I said, "Can't it be a brain tumor?" She said, "Well, it could be, but it is rare." She told me to see a psychiatrist. I was a little angry, to say the least. I went to an ENT. He removed a lot of wax from my ears. No better. I will be getting a CT Scan of my sinuses on the 11th, a VNG, and allergy testing. I don't understand why they aren't doing a CT scan of my brain or an MRI. I am suffering with this. I have heard others with these symptoms when I look them up on the web. Some had them for YEARS! I am getting majorly depressed. I already take Xanax (very small dose). I should also say that I have been eating healthy and lost some weight, and started hormone therapy. All of this AFTER the symptoms started. Anyone have any suggestions?
uhlhouse,

Have you heard of Arnold Chaire Malformation??

It seems or sounds that it could be this perhaps... I have so many of the symptoms that you mention. IT started with numbness on the left side of my face and an EMT test showed that it was not light strokes so they had a brain MRI done and this is what it showed to be the problem...

It is where the mid brain for some reason starts to fall and put pressure on your spine and all these problems are created and it only seems to get worse bit by bit by bit...

I have numbness on the left side only, pressure behind the left eye, it is hard to swallow, I am no almost coughing constanstly for the last 2 weeks and have lost 6 pounds , All I can do is drink losts of liquids for the most part and keep it down. I have a lot of pressure at the base of my neck. The MRI last year showed a mild syrnx starting to form.

I had major back surgery last year and they tried to do a myelogram and the resident tried to different times to get spinal fluid out so that they could put in the dye to see what they wanted to see for sure. I think that ACM1 is part of the problem. They never did get the fluid out...


Perhaps I am wrong - but it might be something to look into all you have to do is type ****** *****Institute and they have an excellent web site to go to if you want to look into this...
