Anyone else experiencing what I call head "awareness?"
I'm 73 with 2 Pfizer COVID shots and one Pfizer booster before this condition started. Had it now for 9 months…sudden onset 11/10/2021. Fever, chills, brain fog, fatigue, bad nasal drainage…nothing into chest. No loss of smell or taste. Five days after first symptoms was finally able to get into clinic for COVID test…negative. Was affected for nearly 3 weeks before nasal issues diminished. Brain fog, concentration, balance issues, fatigue continued along with the newly recognized head 'awareness' or 'sensation.' Many of the symptoms of long haul COVID or chronic fatigue syndrome. I've had numerous blood test, seen neurologist, had a brain MRI. No indications of the cause.
Sensation covers the area of the head roughly outlined by an old fashioned lady's swim cap with a chin strap. It's not a pain, a pressure or a tension; it's just an unending, irritating…sensation. It is aggravated by concentration, physical activity, bright light and alcohol on the rare occasion when I imbibe.
The docs don't seem to have a clue what's causing it. The neurologist put me on the pain med, Gabapentin (600MG 1x/day), for possible nerve pain. Hasn't helped.
Any of you folks experiencing this?? It's about driving me crazy.
P.S. I mistakenly posted this on the "Just Want to Talk" group first.
