    Red face WHOA! so scared! Dizzy, head pains, weakness, what's happening to me!!!!

    I've been struggling with some sort of wierd head pain for over three weeks now. It is mostly a bad pressure in my whole head, but occasionally I get really bad sharp, shooting pains in the right side of my head. I also have been having severe dizzy spells. I lose my balance temporarily, but so badly that I trip or stumble around. I also have this strange inner shaking feeling in my head, with some added tingling.

    I also have noticed that I am very sensitive to sounds. Not that they cause the pain to be worse, but they frighten me, like I can't just process them properly. I also have been trouble seeing things beside me. I can only see in front of me, so people can frighten me easily, it is almost like I have tunnel vision or something. It is really wierd.

    I am currently taking Centhroid, Lexapro, Vitamin B Complex, Skelaxin(muscle relaxer), and Ibuprofen as needed for the pain. I have been positively diagnosed with hypothryroidism, high cholesterol, clinical depression, social anxiety, OCD, borderline personality disorder, chronic sinusitis, and allergic rhinitis.

    I visited the doctor, where she checked my ears and sinuses. Both were okay with no inflamation. Then she thought maybe it was TMJ, I've been taking the ibuprofen and Skelaxin to help that, and that did get better, but the pressure and dizziness is still just as bad.

    SCARY!!!: Last night, something really scary happened! I was sleeping pretty soundly and was abruptly awoken by one of my dizzy spells. It felt like my brain was trembling and there was an immense pressure throughout my head. My vision became unclear and I had "shutter vision." I then started having strange muscle twitches and was really weak. This is so scary! Please help me figure this out!!!!

    Does anyone know what could be causing these strange symptoms? I'm really concerned.
