Front Head Pressure, Fuzzy Head, ear problem?

For the past six months I've had these ongoing sysmptoms. Most annoying, a fuzzy head (slight dizzy) and ear pain and front sinus type pressure (not pain) in my forehead. The ear pain is not ongoing but more of a stabbing on and off pain that occurs 2-3 times a day. My ears fell full as well. When I open my mouth wide I can replicate the pain almost like it's my Eustachian tube. I've also has a sore neck that comes and goes. I have bitten my finger nails and chewed on ice my entire life (I'm 28). The strange thing is I feel normal in the morning and the symptoms start to set in after I've been at work on the computer 1-2 hours after I wake up. I'm thinking either TMJ or neck back issues. I have stopped biting my nails for 3 days now, what a mess! I never realized how much I did it until I stopped. Can anyone relate or have the same symptoms? I've been to the Gen. MD twice and the ENT twice. Augmention and Z-pak did nothing to help. Again, it's off and on. I'll have symptoms for 3-4 weeks then go one month and feel great. I'm pulling my hair out over here!

I'm not so sure if that is TMJ. (?)

Re: Front Head Pressure, Fuzzy Head, ear problem?

Your symptoms sound similar to mine initially. I had lots of "out of it" dizziness, Eustachian tube issues, a dull feeling of pressure on the left side of my head. I saw numerous doctors w/o any concrete diagnosis. Then a otolarynologist said that my ears were fine, but that I may have TMJ due to my tight jaw muscles.
It's been 3 years and I'm better than before but still suffer daily symptoms. Oral splints have helped which means that my bite was related to my symptoms, but I think the problem is more complex than just TMJ.
Anyhow, please see a TMJ dentist for a consultation - your symptoms sound like they could have a TMJ component.
Good luck.
