tightness in head

Hi, for many years I have had a general tightness in my had. I do not have any pain, just some discomfort. It makes me feel generally fatigued. About 7 years or more ago I was diagnosed with Menier'e's Disease and told by my ENT that it could contribute to that feeling. I was also diagnosed with a form of Muscular Dystrophy (Myotonic Dystrophy)) and cannot help wondering if that has something to do with it. Anybody experiencing the same thing?

Re: tightness in head

How did they find out you had menierre's disease?
I have that feeling off and on- My left ear feels infected a lot but also the jaw on that side- so I figure it's TMJD. But I am having other symptoms with muscle spasms and twitching, especially in legs at night. Lots of nerve sensations in arms too, and head off and on.
Psalm 28:7
The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.

Hi, haven't been into my post recently. I noticed you asked how I knew I had Meniere's. I went to a doctor that specializes in dizzeness and he told me that the tests indicated I did. I kinda wonder about the diagnosis, though.
