Customer Question
Hi. I have this sensation...
Hi. I have this sensation in my head which is causing me to feel drained/tired. It feels like something is moving in my skull. No headache but feel nauseas. Feel like I could pass out. Any idea what causes this? Or any way to prevent this happening?
JA: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?
Customer: Yes nauseous. I can wake up feeling like this.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I am 66 and have been taking hormone replacement pills since I was in my late 40's. I stopped them for about 6 months but had to go back on them as I felt awful

Health Professional: Doctor John MD, Doctor (MD) replied 2 months ago

thank you for the response. sorry to hear that you are not feeling well.

  1. How long have you felt like this?
  2. Is the sensation getting worse since it started, or has it stayed about the same?
  3. Have you seen your doctor for this problem yet?
  4. What is your biggest concern about your symptoms?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
1. 2 years
2. Feeling not gett No worse but occurring more often
3. Yes. Had MRI scan for brain tumour which I don't have. No solution as yet
4. The debilitating affect its having on my life. Losing days at a time as I have to lie down
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I used to be on hormonan tablets for HRT but they are no longer available and my doctor changed my tablets to elleste solo 1mg tablets. I am on these twice a week.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
This change in tables was Over 2 years ago.
Health Professional: Doctor John MD, Doctor (MD) replied 2 months ago

thank you for those answers. Its reassuring that you have had a normal MRI of the head.

Have you seen a neurologist or other specialist for this issue, or only your regular physician?
Has your blood pressure been normal as well in the past two years sine your symptoms started?
Have you had any blood work done in the past 6 months?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Blood pressure normal. It was the neurolgist that organised the MRI scan
Health Professional: Doctor John MD, Doctor (MD) replied 2 months ago

And have they done any heart tests on you as well?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
They thought I had a slow heart rate but it was actually the opposite. But no cause for alarm there
Health Professional: Doctor John MD, Doctor (MD) replied 2 months ago

Have you seen a cardiologist as well?
And what type of heart tests did they do?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I had a heart monitor for a week. I saw the cardiologist
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Everything was ok
Health Professional: Doctor John MD, Doctor (MD) replied 2 months ago

Good, I wanted to make sure they had done the holter monitor (one week heart teat). an EKG does not always catch problems with irregular rhythms.

Is there any dizziness or vertigo with the symptoms?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Constantly. My head just swims
Health Professional: Doctor John MD, Doctor (MD) replied 2 months ago

And have you seen a Ear, Nose and Throat specialist?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No
Health Professional: Doctor John MD, Doctor (MD) replied 2 months ago

That would be my recommendation since you have already seen the neurologist and had a cardiac workup. Your symptoms may be due to a problem in the inner ear and a ENT specialist would be able to diagnose and direct proper treatment for you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
