Complicated question: All of your symptoms may or may not be related. Headaches could be tension HA and/or migraine. Dizziness could be due to anxiety and hyperventilation or other causes. Difficulty falling asleep likely due to anxiety. Problem staying asleep (early awakening)likely >depression. Sleeping pills not a good idea. Discuss these symptoms with your Dr or arrange a Virtual Consultation>http://bit. Ly/1OiIRcI ...Read more

The first thing you: Need to have checked IS your blood pressure. This could all be related to high blood pressure. And what might cause rapid heart rate: things like hyperthyroidism, medication effects, etc. Get good ENT exam, too. But once those things have been checked, I would really look at anxiety as a potential cause. You may not even know why you feel anxious...but help is available. Pursue an evaluation now. ...Read more

Other things?: Have you checked your blood pressure? A lot of these symptoms are seen with high blood pressure > 140/>90. You can check at any drug store or grocery even without seeing a doctor. If findings are high, would recommend seeing someone quickly as this can cause stroke, heart attack and death even in young people. Also worse if you are a smoker. ...Read more

Have been having pressure in right side of head behind ear for 2 months with dizziness and stiff neck on that side. Ct w/o contast?

Scan, yes: Because you are young the statistics shift toward less serious problems. However, a lesion of some type involving the mastoid or skull base near the mastoid might give you these symptoms. So, yes; you should have scan. Type of scan questionable. For bone CT is best. For other structure MR is best. Talk to your doctor. Contrast helps but we avoid in some conditions. ...Read more

Eustachian problem: The eustachian tube's purpose is to allow air to pass freely between the throat and the middle ear. When this tube gets blocked by a cold virus or allergy, then air can't get into the ear and pressure or even pain results. In kids this often lead to infection but that's much less common in adults. Only time will make this better. If not improved in 2-4 weeks, or if pain is severe, see a doctor ...Read more
