Hi doctor,

I am having brain fog. I cannot think properly even a single sentence or numerical or complex problems. I have some blockage and pressure in my head. I feel dizzy and foggy in my eyes. While reading, I have palpitation in my head and overall body. My eyes become blurred. Frequently, I have palpitations again and again. I have uneasiness in my gut area. My body seems to be stiff. Along with it, I have stiffness in my jaws, neck, and back area. I have pressure while speaking and it creates uneasiness to speak softly. I have some aggression in my facial area and I have some uneasiness in my whole body. I have tried to use different psychiatric medications, psychotherapy, and homeopathy medicines. But nothing helped me. My MRI and EEG were normal and other blood tests were also normal. I have a sinus problem too. Please advice.

Please mention the antipsychotic drugs used to resolve this issue. Yes, sinusitis patients have foggy mind and heaviness in the head. It gets aggravated while the head is in a bending position. Few anti-psychotics can also cause a cloudy mind with confusion. For sinusitis, you can use water vapor inhalation thrice a day for five days. Avoid drinking cold drinks and ice-creams. You can take tablet Montelukast and Levocetirizine once a day for five days. Do yoga and meditation regularly. If there is no improvement, you can consult your treating doctor and he will change the dosage and treat the condition accordingly.
