I have been feeling as though my brain is swimming around in my skull. I feel like I am in a dream like state, blurred vision, hands are freezing, feeling shaky inside, and I feel as though I am going to fall off of my chair. This past week i have had a migrane from the top of my head to the bottom of my neck.

I just had scans and pictures taken of my thyroid and will have results on monday, but I feel like I should have a scan of my brain because the pressure behind my eyes seems to be getting worse.

Someone help!
