Help! For about the last 3-4 weeks I've been low level under the weather. Started with very swollen glands behind one ear (50p size) and extreme associated pain. This then manifested into a light summer cold.
The following week I had when I can only explain as pregnancy tiredness (I'm def not pregnant) every day I would be in bed at 8 sometimes without dinner as I was so exhausted. Falling asleep at my desk etc in work, basically not normal.
The next week (last week) I've been experiencing migraine like headaches every single day, they start around the same time, 4.30 every day bang, a hideous headache starts.
I wake up feeling a bit headachey but once I'm up take a couple of paracetamol generally I'm ok til later in the day.
My last symptom is for the last 4-5 days I am continually smelling burnt toast, doesn't affect my taste but it's just there, all the time and is driving me slightly mad.
Any ideas? Is it all linked to the headaches, will it just go away?
The symptoms you describe can be linked to infections and migraines. However (I don't wish to be alarmist) they can also be a sign of a brain tumour or other neurological disorder. You should be properly checked out asap.
