Not sure whether to go to ER, not sure if it's "legitimate" enough by Shit Ciddleturk - Sat, 05 Aug 2017 21:02:44 EST ID:+ywUOvW4 No.55067 Ignore Report Quick Reply

26/female/185 pounds/Hashimoto's thyroiditis hypothyroidism

The last two weeks I've been having some craaaazy head pressure. Feels like my hair is being pulled very tightly away from my scalp. I had hair very long and thick, down to my butt, that I recently cut just to get relief. I cut it very short and still no relief. When this intense head pressure happens, I get insanely nauseous. My salivary glands on the insides of my cheek tingle and water. I get double/blurry vision/light sensitive and especially nauseous in the light. My neck is stiff and it's driving me nuts. I'm constantly opening my mouth or yawning to try and relieve the pressure in my head and ears. It's not painful, just extremely uncomfortable.
I will have an "episode" and it'll get worse and then back to manageable where I can still take care of my kids. I feel very brain foggy, light headed, confused. This has been going on for two weeks and I scheduled with neurology and my appointment is in NOVEMBER.
I know I can't wait until then. I feel very just... weird, spacey and out of my body. The head pressure is constant, even in sleep. Motion makes it worse like driving, getting up and walking. I feel very dizzy and about to pass out when I'm motion so I try and just keep to the couch. I'm not sure if at this point I should go to the ER.

If I were having those symptoms, I would call my neurologist's answering service (since it's Sunday) and explain how bad everything was and see if I could get an appointment for the beginning of the week.

If I couldn't I'd go to the ER.

Another possibility would be to go to urgent care or see a family physician early in the week in the hope that they'd refer you to a neurologist quickly. It sucks, but specialists will take other doctors seriously before they take their own patients seriously.

Go to an urgent care center. Far cheaper than an emergency room visit, and they should be able to tell if it's something serious or not, at the least.

First n foremost find a doctor, maybe try an WNT since ur issues sound sinus related
If that isnt an option, look into the following:
Netti pot:sinus irrigation
Light yoga/exercise:do it slowly at first, but regularly, like daily
Diet:theres a wealth of info on healthy dieting online. Try to eat healthy!
In ny experience a shot of liqour or a glass of wine/beer can actually provide a bit of insight and relief for mysterious health issues. Obv. Dont get drunk or overdo it, just see how u react to it. This is a process
And remember to take time to just relax, tune everything out, and listen to your thoughts. Try to find clues physically that might lead you towards relief or just insight. Remember to focus on ur breathing and if this produces anxiety you should try deep and slow breathing and yoga(start light plz). Some people do best with combining meditation(listening to your thoughts/body) with 'chanting' or basically ohming or humming in laymens terms. It rly helps to control ur breathing and any anxiety, also opens the throat and sinuses via vibrations and air pressure.

You may be going through a change physically that will be challenging and confusing, so perhaps youll have to just take things slower for a while and try some of the things ive suggested. Often for these types of issues doctors will not be able to do much but give u pain meds. Best of luck fam.
