It started a two months ago after a cold. I started to
have panic attacks with pressure in my chest and pain in my arms
I went to the ER to rule out a heart attack. That got better
and now I have pain in ears and in my neck. I still have pain in my arms.
My doctor told me that my ears are clear.
” is it one ear or both?”
It varies. first one ear and then the other.
” do you have any change in your hearing?”
No and I have been dizzy.
” can you explain to me exactly what you mean by the word dizzy”
when I lay down flat, it feels like I am on a boat. Things are moving.
” is it brought on by looking up or turning from right to left?”
no, not that I know of. I also feel nauseated and I have had a low grade fever
” what was the temperature exactly?”
100 degrees. when I went to the ER they did some blood work. Iron level thyroid level. It was all normal.
” did they check for Lyme?”
I don’t think so.
“your neck pain.. did you injure your neck. is it sore”
No it just hurts in my neck.
” have you had any ear problems in the past?”
I have never had any ear problems.
” Have you ever had anything like this before?”
” do you have any ringing in your ears?”
” have you had any recent head injuries?”
I had an auto accident September of last year.
“are you tired, do you have malaise?”
I am very tired. I am under a lot of stress. I am moving and my job is difficult
“Do you clench or grind your teeth. Do you hold tension in your face?”
Not that I know of.
” Well, I will examine you and then we get your hearing tested. I will do some
positional testing on you. It might take awhile to figure out what the problem is”
