Hello, i am a male 19 years old and i have been experiencing pressure in my forehead and the bridge of my nose that is very painful and anooying for SIX MONTHS now! My vision is also very wierd its almost like i see everything different. Its like my perihpheral vision is off especially on the left upper side. The pressure started on the left side of my forehead and has gotten worse and moved to the middle right between my eyes and bridge of my nose. The pressure is also bad in my neck and my neck is very stiff. Also i just feel very wierd as a whole like i have become a different person than i use to be its hard to explain. It feels as though my forehead just isnt there at all which is what makes me feel so wierd. The pressure started after i think i had an overdose on ecstasy. It started after the second time i did it but went away and then the third time i did it was very wierd because i didnt feel good i just felt odd and out of it like it didnt work! The come down was so bad and i was crying and the pressure came back. I figured that i could have possibly be experiencing derealization and thats what the head pressure was from because i felt like everything almost wasnt real. I feel as though part of my brain/head just isnt there. Whenever the pressure is bad is when i feel like that. Ever since that day jan. 19 2012 the pressure has been there. Sometimes i feel a little better and the pressure isnt too bad but most of the time its so bad that its all that i can think about. Whenever i go out and drink it makes the pressure becomes worse the next day. Ive searched the internet and come up with possibilities being derealiztion, anxiety, or sinus problem. So i went to see an ENT and he said my sinus must be inflammed and gave me medicine which has not worked at all. I go back Aug. 2nd and they are going to do a CT Scan. Im losing hope and i cant battle with this much longer because i go back to college soon and i am going to be drinking on the weekends. All i want is my life to be back to normal but its been 6 months and i feel that im stuck like this.... There is no going back to normal my life is ruined because of a couple stupid decisions to take a stupid drug. I tell my parents that my head hurts all the time but they really dont understand what i am going through which *****. I would do ANYTHING to have my life back and i will find a solution to this because i cant deal with it much longer. Its like im in a bad dream and cant wake up but i realized this is very real and scary! I NEED HELP.
Go back and reread what I wrote to you the first time you posted. Perhaps take heed of some of the advice I gave you then.
We can only do so much for you in the way of support and advice. In the final analysis, it is entirely up to YOU and YOU ALONE to DO something. If you are not willing to get proactive in your own health care, what, realistically, do you actually think WE can do for you?
I am NOT being judgemental about your drinking, but you made this statement....."Whenever i go out and drink it makes the pressure becomes worse the next day."
I have no idea if there is a connection or not, but if it happens "every time" you go out drinking, then it's something your doc should know.
I do hope you bring this up with him before you head off to college because this next statement you made REALLY needs to be put on the table! You write.........."I'm losing hope and i cant battle with this much longer because i go back to college soon and i am going to be drinking on the weekends"
Yes, you do need help and I've given you all I've got.
I wish you your life back, too.
