I am like that after almost three years. I had two brain bleeds after a TBI during a car accident. Shopping brings it on, especially a store where one must scan items visually or be moving while looking around. First, my head feels like it is twice its size, tinnitus starts, my eyes feel blurry and I begin to feel completely overwhelmed with my shoulders tightening up. Often feeling sick to my stomach. I have a complication: my neck was also broken and a bony bridge never healed. Each day some part of it is given over to dizziness, although after this long the periods of not being dizzy are increasing somewhat.

My Neurologist told me that my head and shoulders tighten because of Nystagmus in my eye – my head and shoulders are trying to hold my world in focus. I get a humming sound in my ears (sounds like the recycled air noise on an airplace) before the headache begins.

I have to shorten the amount of time I go out shopping and I used to love heading to outlet malls to shop-for-sport for a day. No longer!

it has improved from the early days after my stroke but I can maybe shop for a couple of hours at the mall but not during crazy busy times.
