Dizziness, spaced out feeling, head pain, sinus pressure and feeling shaky

For the past 4 years I have been experiencing horrible symptoms. It seemed that the whole thing started as a sinus infection but then I went for a CT scan of sinuses and they were clear. I have been having symptoms of dizziness, head pain, shakiness and a spaced out kind of foggy feeling like i am watching my life from the outside - all day every day. There are some times for a couple of hours during the day that the symptoms may lift and give me a few moments to live- but not much. I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force. Some of the weird parts are that the shakiness seems to be seasonal - coming in spring and lasting thru summer and its miserable like a tingling pins and needles sensation thru out my body. I have also been getting what some doctors seem to diagnose as recurring sinus infections- like 10 a year- i take anti biotics and i feel slightly better until the next infection but i still have the other symtoms while I am on the medication.  I have hay fever and allergies to mold dust...Every doctor tried diagnosing something different- like migraines or TMJ or some sort of other odd thing. I've tried tons of medications. I dont usually have all the symptoms at once...they kind of take turns.  One doctor suggested moving to Arizona as it may be a sinus issue but the ENT's say I have no sinus isue- just regular allergies and the allergists say that they have never seen symptoms like these for allergies. I tried psychologists even though the ony reason I am stressed out is cuz I can never live....before this sickness I was the happiest person around- and even psychologists turned me away as normal.  Is there anyone out there that may know something that can help me - please??......I can not go on like this anymore

Do you drink or eat anything with aspartame in it? Diet sodas, sugar free foods? I developed a reaction to aspartmane, which is nasty stuff. Also-MSG,or food additives, red or blue dyes, fillers, and sodium benzoate-just a partial list of all the **** that is added to our food supply. I get all sorts of reactions from all of the above, including insomnia, itching, bad stomach, you name it. I don't know if you can call it an "allergy"-it is simply toxic stuff that is not supposed to be in our bodies. Find a website that lists presevatives and you will be amazed at the various names of them, some are the same thing, different name. Try to fast for a few days and see what happens.And read every food label!!

I believe what most of you have is chronic fatigue syndrome. I have been researching these same symptoms and this is what I found. there are a few sites that describe these symptoms and elaborate on them. Just put Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in the search and you'll find out a lot about this. Be well!

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is not a diagnosis, it is like telling someone with a hurt back that they have Hurt Back Syndrome.  Syndrome is the key word in identifying something that is not understood, like SIDS.  I suggest all of you research candida/yeast overgrowth, as was mentioned above it can cause all of your symptoms.

I dont know if this is similar to your symptoms but I feel out of it in the head, almost like i'm drunk or something. I crave sleep all the time, and the feeling in my head comes and goes. It feels like my brain is swimming around in smoke or something.

I have the same symptoms and my doctor says its just anxiety and that a lot of people get these feelings. I am currently taking celexa for my anxiety but it doesnt help with the "out of it" feeling I still have. On most days I have a hard time going through the day without feeling like I am in a sense out of reality. I feel loopy, dizzy, my brain feels foggy, headaches, shaky feeling and like I am out of reality, like I am watching things around me but they dont seem real. I have had an MRI on my brain and it came back normal. I am beginning to get into a sort of depression because of these feelings I have and want them to stop but nothing helps. I am hopeless and this is no way to live. Its good to know that other people feel the same way but frustrating that everyone's doctors dont know what this is!!!
