Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.
From your symptoms it is important to rule out any sinus congestion and inflammation (called sinusitis). The sinuses are air-filled spaces lined with mucous membranes surrounding the forehead, cheeks and eyes. Healthy sinuses allow mucus to drain and air to circulate throughout the nasal passages. When sinuses become inflamed, these areas get blocked and mucus cannot drain. This lack of proper sinus drainage can lead to pressure feeling behind eyes and nose.
Diagnosis can be made by examination, transillumination, xrays, a CT scan, or an MRI.
I would suggest you a, ENT specialist's evaluation for the same.
For anxiety, you should start with anti anxiety medicines.Apart from antianxiety medicines, you can resort to cognitive behavior therapy also. Also reduce your consumption of products that contain caffeine, such as coffee, tea, cola and chocolate.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
There are no easy ways to get over anxiety. The most important thing that you need to first do, is consult a physician. It needs to be assessed how severe the problem is and if you need to be on medication
Once, this part of the problem as been tackled, there are several exercises and foods that can be built into your program to alleviate the symptoms and to ensure that you are back to normal and then to ensure that you do not fall back into the anxiety abyss again
According to calmclinic.com the best 7 anti anxiety foods are Peaches, Acacia berries, almonds, blueberries, chocolate ( i bet you need to get the 70% dark one), and maca root (don't know what this is). I for myself, I am doing oil pulling and I had been taking natural supplements like mangosteen and goji berry. I am feeling more wonderful each day. These are natural remedies so they are safe. I got the last two from annwhite.tophealthproductsreview.com. You can do oil pulling with sesame oil and sunflower oil.
First time user in this forum. All new to me. Anyway I have had numerous cardio tests that include the following: EKGs, 48 hr monitor, blood work, echocardiogrm, stress test, nuclear stress test, and echo stress test. Here is the thing: the original stress test came back positive for ischemia, the nuclear stress test imaging came back perfect, but the EKG part was ischemia again. My last test was the echo stress test and that came back with NO red flags of any sort. I do have health anxiety but my cardiologist said everything is fine. I am in good shape and not overweight. BP is good, cholesterol is high normal, and all other tests came back good, that is negative. To add I also have Crohn's disease and feel that there is something wrong (i.e., anxiety caused???).
Anyone out there experience similar ordeals??? Any good stories out there??? Can a bad case of anxiety/nerves affect an EKG stress test???
