In June of 2007 I was diagnosed with labrynthitis, which if you ask me, has not totally gone away. Since then I have pressure in the back of my head on the right side (Cerebellum) area. When the pain gets really bad, I feel alot of pressure in my ear and I lose most of my hearing. At times stationary objects appear to be moving, and I have dizzy spells (standing/sitting). There are mornings when I wake up after 8-9 hours sleep, and the room is spinning like I am intoxicated or all the oxygen has been cutoff to my brain. If I don't get up right away to stop the spinning, I vomit. This only happens when I lay on my back with a pillow under my neck. I have explained all this to my neurologist. I have been for 3 MRI's since November. The last one being yesterday. The first MRI was to check the nerves in my middle ear, which were normal. The MRI showed a cyst in my pineal gland. The doctor at the MRI center would not issue a report on the second scan because they needed more images. ?? Friday was a more detailed scan of the area slightly above my cerebellum, and the pineal gland cyst. I know I'm not crazy, but I feel that they are somehow connected. I have never suffered from headaches before. The pressure pain is always there, and there are times the pain gets so bad I get sick. During the extreme pain it hurts to chew, cough, or talk. The pain in the ear causes my eyes to tear.
Lately my tiredness is getting worse. I can sleep for 8-10 hours and I feel exhausted when I wake up. I'm a single Mom, and this has really affected my family. I wish I knew why this was happening.
If anyone can give me a clue, I would really appreciate it.
