Thank you for asking!
How do you know there is pressure in brain stem area.Your presentation is an ambiguous mix of psychiatric and neurological involving cranial nerves malfunctioning and motor response reduction.Association with eating makes it a bit more interesting.Get to a neurologist and do some brain scans and electrmyographic studies with cranial nerves assessment specially brain-stem area and then seek a psychiatrist help.It needs work up and in depth analysis.Your history is leading to two completely different routes simultaneously.
Take care
