User :   I have been having these symptoms for about two years. I have a hard time focusing and even holding a basic conversation. I feel like I am in a constant foggy state. They thought that it was my sinuses but did a ct scan and came out clear. Recently I have been waking up with headaches that are really bad in the morning and get better during the day. It is hard for me to stay balanced when i walk and i feel like i am swaying. I have dizy spells where i feel like i am going to get sick...i need help
