I exercise regularly. my problem is that any weight training or general weight on my shoulders give me tension in back, neck and headache. Bottom of skull where head and neck joins. Always been that way. thought that strengthening my muscles will help but after 7 months not yet. Right eye twitching for weeks now. feel nodes in my neck and tenderness. been suffering from sinus my entire life. headache a very common thing for me.when i am tired i get eye pain and sensitivity to light. Pressure on top of my head relieves the pain. I always have a stuffy nose and struggle to swallow. I have slight tremmors in my hands and big toe goes numb every now and then. night sweets every now and then. struggle with concentration and focus. I eat healthy and drink lots of fluids. take vitamins. I am struggling to keep up with work and kids. Is it normal to feel bad 5 out of 7 days?

Brief Answer:
NCCT of paranasal sinuses is strongly needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Madam,

I have carefully read your query and understand your concern.

Its definitely not normal to feel bad 5 out of 7 days.

All your symptoms(occipital/skull base headache,periorbital pain,eye twitches and stuffy nose) can be attributed to the underlying chronic rhino and pansinusitis.

This is inflammation of all major sinuses of your facial and skull bones.

As per your clinical history, added symptoms like difficulty swallowing,night sweats,concentration deficits,tremors of hands point to high degree of severity of the ongoing pathological process prompting a thorough search for complications like infected sphenoidal sinusitis.

For this confirmation i advise you to have a non contrast CT scan(NCCT) of your paranasal sinuses.This can accurately detect the sinus pathology ,severity and its complications.

In case of documented diagnosis, FESS-functional endoscopic sinus surgery shall be carried out by an expert otolaryngologist to offer definite cure with relief from all symptoms.

Post your further queries if any,
Thank you
