Congested Head - feel like can't breath and get air into brain

Hello,

Can someone please help me with my issue described below- I'd feel greatly indebted to you.  This issue has been happening for the last 10 years and I still haven't been able to resolve it. It's taken a lot away from my life :(

I always feel congested and feel like I am not getting air to my head. As a result i get tiered pretty easily. When i say "congestion" I mean to say a sensation that the top my head is contracted (as if you had bad cold).  My "congestion" is not the kind that mucus is dripping down my throat or nose. So anyhow, when i do try to take deep breaths to get air in my head (so i can think clearly for once) -- i simply begin to get headaches -- so the problem doesn't get better.

I have had all kinds of medical tests done (multiple times) which have confirmed I don't have sinus infection, I don't have nose pulps, no allergies (food or environment allergies tested), I don't have any respiratory breathing problem, my brain/ head scan show nothing wrong with it. Overall I am fit individual with a good nutrient.

Nothing really helps other than very temporary relief after drinking something hot. I have also tried "steaming with a towel covered my head" -- but that doesn't help. Congestion rubs like Vicks, etc don't help either. Nothing helps.

Can someone qualified please try to help me? Thank you.

     I don't know if supplements will help you or not.  But, Hawthorn Berry and L Arginine help to open up the blood vessels increasing blood flow.  Perhaps they would help you with your problem.   CoQ 10 is also a good blood vessel "opener".
     I take one EDTA tablet once a month to keep my arteries open as I have a build up of iron.
     Maybe you should have your iron levels checked for Hemochromatosis.  It is quite common, yet many doctors don't check for it as it is an hereditary disease.

    Wishing you the best outcome
