Brain fog / band around brain

I have had a constant band feeling around my brain for more then four years. It literally feels like my brain isn't getting enough oxygen or blood. It's literally so strange everyday I wake up and don't feel there all day. It's not painful, but I guess the closest feeling to being stoned or restricted mentally. My focus when on computers or my phone is so limited. I can't feel anything in my head - de realisation. What could this possibly be. MRI and ECG all fine I honestly feel the doctors have missed something. My brain isn't being supplied enough

By 'band feeling' do you mean as if you were wearing some kind of head band that's too tight? If so, that sounds like a tension headache.

I mean for four years ? I'm not in any awful pain it Dosent hurt or cause me to moan, but it's dull and it's constantly so foggy in my brain that's how I describe it a barrier in my head I'm not fully there or any mental clarity I haven't worked for years because of it

Thank you for your response and time x

You're welcome. Hmm, well from what you've said about having a 'fogginess' and a 'barrier' then that's most definitely not tension headache territory. Do you have this feeling with regards to any things in particular or do you find that it's something that is there all the time?

yes i had brain fog for a number of years. i couldnt tell you how long as i think i had always had it. it just got worse and i noticed it more. and then a friend encouraged me to go and get some help which i did and right in that first appointment it went and has never come back. your post reminds me of that time.

do you also get what i call very heavy eyes like you have been awake all night/ a kind of stinging tiredness as if from too much tobacco smoke
