Hi Joni,
I'm wondering if you have a sinus infection?  Sinusitis is caused by mucus storing up in the sacs of air in our head.  These sinus sacs are located in your forehead, next to your nose on both sides. By your ears and one inside ydour head.  If you have any tenderness in these areas by touching them with you fingers, it could be infected.  It is important to get sinus infections treated when you can.  If you are having thick, yellowish or greenish drainage from your nose, that is a definate sign of infection.  In this case an ER appt is not necessary, just a trip to a clinci or dr's office.  Drink lots of water and stay on the antibiotics for the entire course or it will come back again.  If this doesn't sound like sinuses to you than you my have low blood pressure or an inner ear infection.  A Dr.'s appt is definately what you need, soon.  Don't wait so long next time.

My grandaughter hadexactly the same symptoms as you. No one could find a reason. They kept saying they could find nothing.She went to an eye specialist in the end and was diagnosed with Optic Nerve Drusen. It is controled with tablets. She is much better now but will take the tabs forever. Go and ask for a test for this.It is imperitive you find out. Don't be put of tell them you want the test.If it isn't that at least you will know.
