For the past few weeks or a month I have been noticing something weird. My head feels really heavy like one part of the area back of my head and top. I don't know how to describe it but it def feels heavy...and my eyes are always tired no matter how much sleep I get..usually 6-7 or 8 hours is more than enough even so, my eyes are tired. Also, back in May I have experienced really bad dizziness all of sudden 2-3 times as well. So, I'm kind of confused as to what's going on?
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
There are two or three possibilities for a heavy headed feeling with tired eyes and dizziness. The symptoms could be due to compression of the spinal nerves in the cervical spine region. This can happen due to overuse of computers, work involving straining of neck, herniated disc, canal stenosis, bone disease, spondylosis, poor posture etc. A MRI of the cervical spine and nerve conduction studies may be required. The second possibility is a high BP. Hence get your blood pressure checked. TMJ is another possibility. If you have been out in sun a lot or drink less of fluids then it can also be due to electrolyte imbalance or dehydration. Benign intracranial hypertension also causes dizziness with headache and a spinal tap is confirmatory. It can be a migraine attack too. If all this is ruled out then it can also be a sleep disturbance causing heavy headedness and tired eyes and dizziness could be due to not getting enough of proper sleep.
Please consult your PCP for primary examination and if need be referral to a neurologist or a sleep specialist. Take care!
