Dear Doctor, I have been experiencing headaches for abou
Patient :Dear Doctor,
I have been experiencing headaches for about 5 years now ( I am 18 years old). They have been getting worse over the years and the intensity is unbearable at times. I have been suffering from other things along with the headaches, like blurry vision, dizziness, lack of balance, stress, hallucinations, tremors and I fainted a couple of times. The hand tremors happen all of a sudden and the muscles in my body tense and start twitching (Especially my face and thigh). I sometimes see in black and white as well. Over the past two weeks, my headaches have been getting even worse and I am ALWAYS tired and sleepy. I am sleeping all more than usual and I still feel like I want more. I can no longer exercise as week because my head starts aching 5 minutes after I start and I everything becomes blurry. I have seen doctors and done tests. They haven't found anything yet except a small cyst on my pituitary gland which is too small to be causing these problems ( what they said). It is 4mm I believe. Now I am taking medications for migraine and they are not working. Also, pain killers don't work. They rarely make it any better. Any suggestions ?
