Where to start with multiple conditions? Symptoms don't add up
Honestly I am at a loss how to proceed.
History of depression anxiety; cancer of cervix and pelvic radiation damage; tinnitus and other ear issues; ibs-d or ?; glaucoma and probably a few other issues mabt of which shared on this site am happy to say I founhd a few week ago, and so helpful.
On and off for half a year on top of almost daily diarrhea (take Imodium and have poor diet)… and on top of occasional tinnitus and ear pain – for which I was given antibiotics a few times for pain, when it was NOT infetction in ears (internet docor as have no family doctor he left town). Thing is I am getting suddenly during day any time what I can only describe as a very woozy, but not dizzy, feeling in my head – like pressure…mostly ear area.
Half an hour ago, sitting at computer desk which I rarely do now, to sort out some photos.. after about half hour, both at same time I had another quick visit to the bathroom for another pasty b.m. and my ears and the area around them gets so painful, have the pressure in same area, yet also have soreness and pressure inside rectal area. Its like sides of head in a vice… 2 problems at the same time?
The last time I checked the end of the bowel and ears/head are not connected!
Years ago I read that vagus nerve can cause problems like tingling in head (which I also get, but when mentioned to my doctor in passing at that time he almost laughed at me so I never brought it up again.
i am fighting my way out of depression but it seems almost every day "something" hurts or scares or happens to me physically and it seems to bring me right back down. I have waiting over 6 months to again see one of our only two ENT's where I live; I turned down a colonoscopy 2 years ago as honestly at that time felt too ill to have it done. Last one was 2008…he said all ok. Is there another site on here that might have some suggestions for me? I had C.Diff (after 6 antibiotics in 6 months) 2018 and never been the same… but what about the ear/area pain and pressure – just a horrible .co-incience? The pains last for hours now…. and every day I get up trying my best, then this happens often… I keep checking but cant seem to find a cause or solution.
Sorry to be so vague and trying to keep short but like many have quite a history of illnesses (am now 77) Any help would be sincerely appreciated. J.s
