Hello My name is Gaurav I have this strange headache problem for which I am trying to find a solution. Problem started almost 5 months back, In the mid of night while sleeping, I heard a bang inside my head. The moment I got up I was sweating and felt like I have a heart attack or something .Somehow, I was stabilized in next few minutes. The next day I had this strange headache on my temples,as if I am wearing a tight band over my head. This head ache continoued for almost a month. My doctor said, it is simply stress. Since that day, I feel fatigued . It has become really difficult for me to concentrate or focus on something. Harder I try, more is headache plus a whistling sound in my ear. I had few more sympotms such shortness of breath, felt like raging pulse/high blood pressure but again the test conducted by doctor were negative. From past 10 days, I am having headache..I would rather not say it as headache but a heavy head, Every morning I get up, my eyes, cheeks and head are really heavy .As the time passes it becomes a bit normal but it starts to worsen by evening. So It becomes difficult for me to even sleep properly as well as get up.Also I noticed that this headache increases whwn ever I sit at home.If go outside, pain is relieved and pressure is also reduced. please suggest what does these symptoms points towrads? What should I do, I am in a terrible condition at this moment. Thank you Gaurav Mehta YYYY@YYYY

My youngest son is 3 years 6 months. On Friday when we got hom efrom daycare my family and I noticed his eyes were crossed. There we no accident reports from daycare. We thought since my 6 year old had just learned to cross his eyes that little brother might be mimicing. It is Sunday his eyes are still crossing. He complains that his right eye hurts. The right eye is the one that is not focusing correctly the other eye seems fine. When covering each eye he can see out of both. He doesn t seem to stumble but has run into the wall a few times. Should we be really worried? OUr other kids eye doctor is just that not a specialist, should we try to find a pediatric optomitrist to take him to right away? Very worried please help.
