> Well with that..you're diagnosis probably is different then mine..it's very strange to all of a sudden become spontaneously stricken with brain fog , memory problems ,and general cognitive problems, in you're late teens.. The only variable that changed was that I was put on paxil..so I immediately attributed it to that...Maybe theres other things it could be.. but from teh research i've done though it makes the most sense it was from teh meds..

The pressure subsides sometimes, but never completely. I can sort of tell that its still there by applying light pressure to my cheek bones or forehead. When I do this, I can feel the pressure flare up on the upper sides of my head. I'm not sure exactly what makes it better or worse. Exercising daily helped for a couple weeks, but then it started happening regardless.

I guess I'd like to investigate the possibility of migrains (a few people in my mother's family have them), and perhaps endocrin malfunction (my mother had an adrenal tumor, which screwed up her hormonal system). An MRI is probably worth while, given the persistant pressure. I sometimes suspect I have sleep apnea too, since I have bad chronic nasal congestion and tend to wake up frequently.

I have trouble spelling things sometimes, but I guess its forced me to be more cautious when I type.
