Hello -

How old are you?

Do you have anxiety?

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
I'm 38 and I don't suffer anxiety
Expert:  neurosurg replied 20 days ago.

OK, thanks.

Do you have any heart conditions?

Blood pressure issues?

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
No I've never had either of those
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
It feels like it comes in waves, a constant kind of fog/dizziness
Expert:  neurosurg replied 20 days ago.

Thanks.

It's a bit hard to know here.

This sounds like it could be related to an issue with lower than normal blood pressure (which could cause lightheadedness). So if you're a bit dehydrated, then increasing fluids would be helpful here.

Tingling in the face and trouble focusing could be related to anxiety/panic attacks as well.

But to get this further evaluated, seeing your GP in person and having your heart rate and blood pressure checked would be helpful.

I have been trying to get an appointment with my doctor and can't get through so far today.I have been drinking plenty of water and will continue to do so.My head as well as my whole body can almost feel like it's pulsating if that makes any sense
Expert:  neurosurg replied 20 days ago.

Sounds like a bit of a tension headache as well? It's hard to know, but please get checked out by your doctor.

Best of luck.
