Buzzing sensation

Hello all, Please help if you can. I have a buzzing sensation inside my head for about 3 months now. It is constant with several surges or sudden intensifing episodes/day. The back of my neck is stiff and sore. I'm clumsy (something new) confused, comprehension is efffected, ringing in my ears, and scared. This feeling is VERY disturbing. I sometimes wonder if i'm going to loose consciousness or have a seizure. CT scan is clear. Dr. started by treating social anxiety disorder. Nota. Now treating sinus infection. doughtful. Any ideas.

Re: Buzzing sensation

What did the they do the cat scan on? your head?

Well this could be many things but I'm particularly concerned that you might have some sort of spinal stenosis (narrowing in the spinal cannal) going on in your neck. An MRI of the Neck can show that. The fact that your neck hurts and you are getting clumbsy could be telling of that, HOWEVER it could also be an issue with yoru brain as well. an MRI of the brain I think would show a lot more than a CT scan. To be safe you could also get an MRA (the a is for arterial) of both your Neck and Head to make sure nothing is going with your arteries. You may have to start telling your doc what tests you would like to have. If you suspect its something neuro related, you could just go straight to a neurologist, or even the ER and tell them your concerns, they might be more likely to get some of these test done right away, but I know sometimes the ER can also be very frustrating and they hardly do anything at all, but you could be insistant and perhaps they would listen more closely.

Has your blood pressure been okay?

Good luck to you and many blessings, I hope its figured out soon and that nothing serious happens and that its nothing serious.

Re: Buzzing sensation

The thing is, if you did indeed have a CT of head recently, that should show your doc if you truely have a sinus infection or not, If it came back clean, that makes me suspicious that you don't have one, unless the radiologist wasn't looking for sinus stuff, you could have this clarified by speaking with your doctor. It might depend on the "reason" the cat scan was done. The ringing in the ears could potentially be from an inner ear infection, in which case it might be good to go to a Ear Nose and Throat doc (ENT), but it can also be caused by many other things as well that are going on. Hang in there, just be persistant and start telling the docs what you would like done potentially out of your concerns, especially if you don't find your current treatments effective. If you find yourself really frustrated, you can always seeks a second opinon as well.

Do you have bad headaches or pressure in your head ever?

Re: Buzzing sensation

Thank you so much. I was hopeing you would respone. The CT scan was brain only. The sinus treatment is I think a guess. I've been to the ER 4 times in two months at three different Hos. Like you said they can do very little as there is little they can see. One of them gave me an Emrg. CT scan. I'm in Canada and i'm not sure if I can go directly to a neurologist if so i'm not sure how. Blood pressure is always fine and i do had some headaches that seem pressure related. I will take your advise and insist on seeing a neurologist. FYI i've posted on several sites just yesterday and am shocked at the responce. There are people suffering from something very similar all over. I thank you again and hope for relief for all.

Re: Buzzing sensation

One more possibility to suggest is seeing an Allergist, if you haven't had allergies in the past and suddenly have them, this can cause a lot of problems.. even if you've had them already, its possible you've gotten worse. An allergist can do a comprehensive test on you to see what allergies you have.

Re: Buzzing sensation

I have had all of the things going on as well. The nuero surgeon in July did an MRI and said the brain was healthy all the things that you posted are getting much worse and he listened and I am in the process of getting
an MRI scheduled soon for a second one. He told me that it is just a precaution and set me up with an appt with neurology after the MRI.

I am going through the VA as I spent 21 years working for uncle sugar.

The nuero - surgeon is from a major hospital in Omaha Ne and trust that he knows what he is talking about/ HE works at the med Center 3 days a week so I had to wait 5 weeks to see him. He is a well respected surgeon in the Omaha area.

Best of luck,
Roy

Re: Buzzing sensation

I had those same symptomes and more. I went to ten specialists and was misdiagnosed nine times. I was going CRAZY.Then by pure luck my ear nose and throat specialist Did a Lymes disease test which tested positive. But not before I had central nervous system damage. good luck and dont't stop searching for answers ,there is one believe in yourself and your symptoms and there will be a doctor who does the right test.

Re: Buzzing sensation

Hi,

I had the same thing, buzzing, brain fog, neck hurt, cracked. All the doctors thought I was nuts. Kept trying to give me different medicine to shut me up. I never took them. My sister who is a nurse told me to get checked for lyme disease. I did and I had it. It went into my central nervous system as well. After 5 months of antibiotics I am about 80% there. Have one more round of treatments.

By the way I had to go to CT, Dr Katz in Orange to be treated. Even though I had it the doctors in MA would not treat it correctly. Be persistant and believe in what your body is telling you. Most doctors now adays only want to spend 20 minutes with you. If they can't figure it out they just put you on the merry go round to different doctors. Good luck.

Charlie

Re: Buzzing sensation

Hi, Me too, I had a cat scan last year through and ear nose and throat specialist. She said it looked like alot of white mass but could not figure it out. Antibiotics that she kept giving me made the rest of my body feel okay but did not get rid of what she thought was a sinus infection). However ammoxicillin made me sick then ( surprize herxing but didn't know I had lyme then) Anyway I ended up with endoscopic sinus surgery and she removed nasal polyps. The reason for my sinus issues is Lyme disease and perhaps a coinfection or 2. I think you search the web for lyme disease coinfections and read up. You may read symptoms that are simular to yours. I continue to have sinus issues. Take care, Deb
