BT fear
« on: June 21, 2014, 02:23:03 PM »
Ive been having BT fear for a few weeks now. First off, ive been having pain above my right eye which comes and goes throughout the day. My right eye also seems blurry compared to my left. Ive also been seeing flashes of blue spots a few times a day. I went to optometrist and she said my eyes looked fine. For the past few days, ive also been experiencing a lot of dizziness, nausea and vommited once. Last week, i had shooting pains on my right side of my face for a day. I went to the dr a few times for this reason ans he would always say its either cluster headache, sinus issue or migraine but the medications never work...

Have you had any scans done? Not. Saying it's a bt but maybe a scan will bring you relief. I'm sure that most of it is anxiety from worrying so much.

I can totally understand. I too seem to wish I could have MRI but I really know deep down that it would be a waste of time. I have had ct scan though even if it was without contrast. I had sinus infection and I was getting same symptoms you are. My eyes weren't blurry but they didn't want to focus. They had pressure begins them. But the pain in eye I have now and then. I'm pretty sure it's allergies and sinus. Have you tried to take an allergy or sinus meds? I saw you mention that you had tried meds. I have been having migraines off and on for a few years and no meds work for mine, just sleep. Not all meds work.

Migraines will cause dizziness by the way. It could be inner ear. It's hard to say cause Eveything can make someone dizzy but it's rare for it to be a bt.

Yea i took claritin, zyrtec, nasal spray, bactrim and sudafed for allergies and sinus reasons but nothing worked. The nasal spray gave me severe headache and the sudafed made me tremble inside. Dr said he doesnt think its brain related since the symptoms comes and goes after few weeks but the symptoms are more intense whenever they come back

How long has this been going on? And when did you see your doctor?

 Oh ok. Well I guess if your dr isn't concerned then try not to worry. I know it's easier said than done. If you think you need reassurance then just ask for MRI.

Yea im thinking of going back to the dr next month and ask for an mri. Its so frustrating trying to figure out whats wrong wih me. I wish diseases, cancers and tumors had more obvious symptoms like if you have heart disease, your nails will turn yellow or if you have BT, then your hair will turn green
