Since April this year, I have had the same intense headache, like a tension/pressure between my eyes and extending up over the top of my head, feels like a heavy weight is sitting on my head all the time. This headache hasn't broken at all, and it doesn't vary in intensity much if at all. I also have episodes of unusual severe positional vertigo which the room doesn't stop spinning unless I sit back up, even if I lay still for an hour. I also feel waves of confusion, anxiety, and fear, as if I'm in a dream-like state.
One night about 2 weeks ago, I woke up with the usual headache, and my right arm and leg felt "asleep". I couldn't move my leg at all, and barely could move my right arm. Left limbs were normal. After I stood up the feeling came back to my right limbs and they started moving again after about 30 seconds.
Am i over-reacting, or based on my other symptoms, do i have something to worry about? What are your thoughts on all my symptoms? I have had negative MRI, MRA, of the brain and neck.
Thank you so very much for a wonderful service, god bless.
PS- I have also not been able to flex my left bicep for as long as I can remember, well before my symptoms first appeared. The arm isn't weak, but I can't do the "bodybuilders" flex, whereas I can with my right arm. i do not know if this is significant or not, but what could cause this?
