Pressure Symptoms

Something odd happened this month with my symptoms.  I have had an odd pulsating pressure in the roof of my mouth off and on, on the right side. Usually associated with not sleeping well or working too hard, and related stress.  But it recently upgraded itself to now be a pulsating pressure behind my right eye, as if it moved up a bit.  Its pretty alarming this move.  I hope this does not mean its going after my eye all of a sudden, *sigh*.

Brain Fog

Its odd how my brain rebels...

Granted its dealing with the cavernous angioma displacing bits on the inside, but its brainstem, core physical wiring type stuff, not cerebral.

So when I start studying for this real estate brokers license that I have been putting off for about 20 years ( I know I have been busy :P ), its strange that I do so through some sort of fog.  Generally I don't react well to stress, and now when I am fairly leisurely reading these books to study and taking some online exams, I can feel my head get all whacked out, sort of what you would think a sinus headache or head cold to feel like but not quite.  Some odd generalized pressure around my mouth, sinus, eyes, etc.

This is not new, I have been dealing with this all year, stress helps create a physical sensation in my head I have to cut through to do what I need to do, but what is striking is even a simple act of studying new material is triggering it.  Boy am I sensitive!
