HI I am a 49 year old male suffering from massive head pressure that seams to creep into
my sinuses and gives me pressure pain there, in my eye sockets, the bridge of my nose,
my temples, my teeth (that really aches) my cheeks and the back of my head at center and lower jaw jts. This pressure sensation gets so bad I get headaches and experience light headedness as well. The only relief is putting ice on my head and face and popping tylenal.
This started about 6 weeks ago with the pressure then out of nowhere my blood pressure
spyked with chest pains and heart attack symptoms. I went to ER and except for the blood
pressure spike all tests negative. Went to my cardio guy took stress and angiogram and all
negative, my blood work is fine my cholesteral 158 ( with help from simvastin) . Went to
ENT who I am working with now. My MR on brain and sinus was normal. I took a ct of the sinus and that was normal. I went for a vertigo or balance test and that was normal. For someone who is in perfect health I feel so crappy. The docs are chalking this up to stress, nerves and anxiety; prescription xanax and cymbalta. I am not a nervous person with absolutely no problems. To chalk this up to nerves first makes me nervous. Could this be from nerves without having to be nervous? I have read other sites where people have experienced this weird head pressure and similar symptoms but it was from a couple of years ago with no way to contact them. If anybody out there has experienced anything like this or has some suggestions please
