Head Sickness

I have been suffering from "head tension" - not a headache per se for 3 years now.  I have undergone every test imaginable, (CT, MRI, X-Ray etc) - with no significant results.  I will start by saying that my condition feels as though my head is sick - it feels as though it is full of poison or infection unrelated to how I feel elsewhere in my body.  It makes me feel drowsy, unfocused and a general loss of mental acuity.  The tissue around my eyes, including my left eyelid seems to spasm all the time.  If I sleep to one side, fluids seem to collect in my ear cavities and under my eyes, (puffy).  Because of this "head sickness" I suffer from anxiety and mental lethargy.  I have been to dozens of doctors in the last few years, with no diagnosis.  My question is simple - is it possible for my head and its soft tissues to be "sick/poisoned" without significant effect on the rest of my body?  If so, what possible avenues should I consider to try and get a proper diagnosis and treatment?
