1Hi Doctor - I feel heaviness and feeling of swelling in my head. Heaviness is from last 2-3 months and i prevails for 1 week and then goes. Post that it comes again and last again for 1 week. I consulted one doctor and he gave me treatment of 15 days antibiotic and anti allergic for sinus . It helped me and complete month of January i was ok. But this feeling has again returned. I have observed mild heaviness/swelling in palms and feet too. I am having sound sleep and dont have nausea . I would like to get this evaluated but bit afraid from any side of neuro disorder.

Hello vishalvi2008
Thanks for asking question, welcome to HCM
The swelling or heaviness in head which responded to the antibiotic therapy and again recurred, so there is very high chances of CHRONIC sinusitis of frontal sinus, as it usually present with light headache and heaviness.
Second option we can think is any neurological lesion but usually swelling on hands along with feeling of swelling on head are not features.
If you are in doubt and stressed best is to get MR scan done, secondly visit a good doctor for proper treatment of chronic sinusitis as you have to take antibiotics, antihistaminics for long. MR scan will also show the sinusitis.
Hope I cleared your doubt.
