Dear Jonny Drama,
I apologize ahead of time for this being a long post, but I've just got to tell you what I think you should do to get a whole lot better in a pretty big hurry, and I may be wrong, but it doesn't hurt to hear me out. I'm thinking about your sinus infection and how the medicine for it set off all this misery. Also thinking about how when your sinuses get really clogged up, since those cavities are above and below the eyes, people who feel a lot of pressure in there, well, their eye or eyes will do exactly what yours is doing, the eyelid will droop and it can also make it dilate and water.
Now, I have several reasons for you to try this, but just fixate on the idea of a very big need to really clearing out your sinuses. I understand the antibiotics killed the bacteria, but I have my own reasons for going beyond the norm. Two ways to clean sinuses, one takes a while, the other is quick. The long way is to get a plain saline nose spray, with NO other ingredients in there, and in the morning and evening, squirt a couple times into each nostril, sort of breathe up with the first squirt. The quick and sure way is to visit an ear nose throat ENT doc, and ask that he please wash out your nasal cavities for you, that's really the very best way to do it, just remember to tell him you're allergic to that medicine you used before. Also, drink some extra water daily for a couple weeks whilst you're trying to do this.
Now, there is another thing I think you should try. Again, I'm thinking about this pressure you have and also your tics happening after the pressure, and there is a little spice plant called Cilantro, I remember growing it in my garden and adding it to my salads, and I used it in a few Mexican recipies, the fresh leaves of that plant have a lemon type scent, really refreshing. What it does is, it helps rid the body of toxins that can build up, like after an infection of some kind. Since you had this sinus infection, well, the endless extra pressure in the head indicates a sort of autoimmune process, which can come from remnant bacteria floating around in the human body and creating stress. Just by eating the leaves of that spice plant, maybe once or twice a week, for a couple months, should help tone down this head thing going on forever.
Now, your doctor prescribed lorazepam, and that tranquilizer really makes a person feel good and also relaxed. Relaxation is good for OCD, it's good for tics, and it's good for your sense of well-being. So, since you have this tic thing where you muscles kind of let loose when too much pressure builds up, I think if you were to get into a pretty vigorous regular exercise activity maybe three or four days a week, this wil specifically release your tense muscles.
I might add that you could benefit from a massage therapist once a month, this will release muscle tension too, if you go to a gym they often have them there. Also, think in terms of a schedule, where you exercise at the same time on the days you do it, and then that should be followed by a routine like showering, then comfortably sitting quietly for about ten minutes. Then whenever you eat dinner, take one of your tranquilizers at that time, really enjoy a nice meal, after which the medicine will start to relax you, and that's when you can again do that relaxing, this time 20 minutes,listening to music or going for a twilight walk
I think within three weeks of fooling with this stuff, HOPEFULLY you are going to notice a very big difference in how you feel. By the way, I have panic disorder and I do not think that's what you have! I think this all is centered around the sinus infection you had, as well as having relaxation issues, and since you already have OCD and tics, well, you cannot really take on ANY other health situation. But I also think some of what I've said will ALSO help you regular health problems, too. Let us know how things go. GG
Thanks for the reply! I have tried the nose spray with no help. My doctor also thinks this is not due to my sinus issues. I have still had a constant light head for the past few days with a lot of pressure on the top of my head. I will try the Cilantro plant and my doctor also thinks I should have an MRI done just in case.
Can you go to an ear nose throat ENT man, to make sure your nose is completely clear of any bacteria that may still be lodged, as well as any continued mucous buildup, by cleaning out your nose? PLEZ do that. Also, please get into an exercise program, you gotta exercise at least three or four times a week to where you break a sweat for it to relax you. Also, a massage therapist will help you, too! These are simple things, and while I'm glad you'll eat some cilantro leaves, I wish you'd also do these other things too. GG
