Can ct head/orbit cause : lightheaded dizzy  w/ brief low rumble noise , headache w/ tingling forehead? Dr said maybe anxiety, but no hx panic.attacks

No, a CT cannot: CAUSE these symptoms. In fact, a CT may HELP DIAGNOSE reasons for dizziness and headache, such as sinusitis. Your doctor is correct that anxiety can cause dizziness and tingling, even without "panic attacks". If you have your CT on a disc, I can explain it to you on HealthTap Concierge healthtap.com/saurbornmd. ...Read more

Face pain/spasms, dizzy, neck pain, after doing chin ups and chest dips? Sometimes I get eyelid twitching too. What causes this? How do i fix it?

Face pain/spasms, dizzy, neck pain, after doing chin ups and chest dips? Sometimes I get eyelid twitching too. What causes this? How do i fix it?

Get checked: Clearly, not a normal response after doing chin ups. I would check your teeth, your cranial joints (TM joints, occiput and frontal sinus at sphenoid junction) for presence of toxins, pathoges or allergens. Dizziness is suggestive that your ears may be involved .Muscle spasm and eyelid twitching suggest neuromuscular involvement, so rule out Lyme disease. ...Read more

Been having each ache, sinus pressure, face pain, nasal drainiage, ears feel plugged up, dizzy/lightheaded, fatigue, headache for 3-4 weeks. Dr gave me Flonase 3 weeks ago no help. What is it?

Been having each ache, sinus pressure, face pain, nasal drainiage, ears feel plugged up, dizzy/lightheaded, fatigue, headache for 3-4 weeks. Dr gave me Flonase 3 weeks ago no help. What is it?

Sinus infection : It sounds like you have a sinus infection. Flonase will not be enough. You need an antibiotic that is very effective for the sinus like Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 875mg two times a day for 2 weeks. You also need an sinus decongestant like claritin-d 12 hour also twice a day. On top of that you should use a saline nasal rinse like the neti pot several times a day. Once things settle down then the Flonase will work. ...Read more

Can you be worried an anxious about something without knowing it and then can it cause dizziness or a small anxiety attack?

This often means stuffing distressing situations & emotions deep inside us, so we're not consciously thinking about them. The anxiety may build, though -- and has to express somehow.
