Question: I have had a bad sinus infection and inner infection for one month. I have been on 3 antibiotics and I still don't feel any better. My head hurts, I feel really really dizzy. I don't have the pressure in my head like I did. But the pain in
my head is awful. I feel like in on a permanent ride that goes in circles. I feel like a have a tight band around my head. I cannot turn my head quickly at all or I feel like I'm going to pass out. Is this still the sinus affection?
I'm generally very healthy except for the common cold. For about a month in a half now I just XXXXXXX felt good at all. I feel like something is wrong. I have been to the doctor in one month at least 6 times. I don't think I've been to the doctor before that 6 times in 5 years. Please help me. I have also had tingling sensations and a pin and needle feeling shooting from head to toe. I also feel like I cannot grip or hold things in my right hand like I usually can. My vision has been somewhat blurry.

Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

Your current symptoms are not due to sinus infection.

The most likely cause can be migraine with vertigo, which can explain the headaches and dizziness.

However, in view of other symptoms, MRI brain may be required to exclude other causes, such as multiple sclerosis.

Please also get the vitamin B12 level checked for any deficiency.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,

I have an ache in my calf that started last evening. I injured the knee on the same leg two months ago, had an MRI, have a torn meniscus. Was going to have a surgery but decided to wait as it was getting better. But last night the calf started aching and I wonder if it is related or could i have a blood clot?

I was recently told I have empty sella found on a MRI. Also found low testosterone. I feel very fatiuged and can't handle stress very well. This has been going on for 3 to 5 years. Could I have a pituitary problem affecting other hormones such as cortisol. Thanks Jim C.

Can HCG cause tumors on your liver? I went on the HCG diet for 43 days FEB. 2010. Went in for a ct scan for something unrelated and they found a growth on my liver. The size of a large orange. The doctor does feel that it has been there for a long time. Just wondering if the HCG could have made it bigger. I am getting a MRI next week. Hopefully it is not cancerous.
