This morning I felt vaguely dizzy and felt pressure behind

This answer was rated:

This morning I felt vaguely dizzy and felt pressure behind and around my eyes. I lay down and felt the pressure even more, and could feel my pulse throbbing in my head and abdomen. I napped for a couple of hours and awakened feeling back to normal. Could this be a TIA, and should I see my MD tomorrow? I don't believe that this is an eye problem. Thank you for your help.

Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

I would not rush to blame your symptoms on a TIA from what you have posted. It is possible that you have sinus inflammation, perhaps a mild migraine etc.
