I have had headaches, ear pain and pressure behind the nose for 4 weeks now. I also suffer from epilepsy, I've had 2 seizures, 3 years apart. My last one was 2 years 8 months ago. I take anti-seizure medication every day. I had a panic attack 4 weeks ago and thought this it it and will have my next seizure. The very next day I started suffering from head pressure, it wasn't painful or anything, just really annoying, then a couple days later, got some dull pain all day, sometimes ear pain, sometimes two of them together. Whenever I would take a OTC pain medication, the headache would stop but I would get this insane pressure in my ears.Like I had taken off and landed in an airplane for hours straight. Sometimes I would take pain meds two times a day and they wouldn't help until I went to sleep. This cycle would continue and continue. Also the pressure behind the nose bridge, like something was pushing against it. Went to my doctor, she had my ears cleaned, thought it could be wax, didn't help. So I booked an appointment with my neurologist, but couldn't get one until August!! Anyway, since I was so scared of having another seizure, I had my other doctor book an EEG, got it straight away and everything was normal, no epileptic activity, which is a good sign, I know. The next doctor I went to was an ear-throat-nose doctor. She said everything was fine, no infections anywhere and said to go back to my neurologist. I wrote this long letter to him as well, but he said he doesn't have any time and I have to wait and keep taking pain medicine. I also get anxiety attacks when I'm alone with my thoughts, I don't understand what is wrong with me, the headaches, ear pain and pressure won't go away. I don't wake up in pain or anything in the middle of the night. But in the morning, I always either have dull pressure in the head or ear pain, which worsens during the day. I have scoured the internet for answers, but cannot find anything. Thought maybe it was allergies, so started taking allergy medicine, especially nasal sprays that clean the sinuses since it can be that also? But I haven't had any normal symptoms for allergies, like runny nose or it being congested. During the last days I've also detected the pain to go into my jaw a little bit and upper teeth, but it's not painful and I can just feel some senstation there. Eberything also gets worse when I'm lying down, but not sleeping, on my back, like something is pressing against the back of my head and normal blood flow or whatever has been cut off. But can sleep well, no problem.
I have also thought about it being anxiety headaches? But can they really last that long? And be basically 24/7 and in weird places like the ears? And some days only the ears, nowhere else. I cannot detect any stress at work either, since everything I do there has been the same as in the beginning of the year?
Can anybody give me any kind of direction? What could it be/what could it do? Where can I turn to. It feels like I am trying to find the answers but the doctors aren't doing anything to help... and it really scares me. All I can think of is that I cannot remember what it felt like to have a "clear head", no pressure or fuzzy feeling...
