Question: Doctor, I've been having trouble with fatigue and a fuzzy head and head pressure. Don't know how else to describe it. No fever, but sometimes am chilled and sometimes my head feels warm. No abnormal mucous. no cold or respiratory symptoms. have had some stress recently, could anxiety cause this? Could I have a sins infection with no fever or mucous? Some sort of nutritional deficiency? Has XXXXXXX going on now for almost four weeks. Fuzzy head s making it hard to concentrate.I am starting to freak out about it. Any ideas what this could be?

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Feeling of pressure in the head with a fuzzy feeling could be due to a sinus congestion even without any symptoms related to cold. The other causes can be stress and anxiety, high blood pressure, eye strain or migraine. It is not likely to be related to any nutritional deficiency.
You need to consult an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) specialist and get investigations done. These include an evaluation of the sinuses, a chest X-ray, trans illumination test and may be an X-Ray sinuses and CT (Computed Tomography) sinuses.

Till that time, inhale plenty of steam or use a humidifier. Eat small nutritious meals at frequent intervals instead of a heavy single meal. Exercise frequently and take your dinner atleast 2 hrs prior to bedtime.

I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
