gotcha,now it makes more sense to me,thanks.what i was referring to was taking your BP DURING the sensation and doing it when it isn't happening?just to compare the two.sometimes a raise in BP can create that same type of sensation.i know exactly what it is you are describing as i also get this.sometimes it is a raise in my BP and sometimes there doesn't really appear to be a 'good' reason for it.it wouldn't hurt you tho to at the very least,only becasue this appears to be an ongoing thing,to obtain an MRI/MRA type of scan?the MRI would look at all structures within the brain and the MRA looks strictly only at the arterial structures within the brain without all of the other stuff in the way to hide some of the arteries from view.if nothing shows on these types of tests,at least many many possibilities for what you are feeling can be ruled out and you would know with pretty good certainty that this is not a brain realted issue,ya know what i mean?

the c spine or even the neck area(the arterial structures within it)could also be spots where something is changing the velocity of your normal blood flow.this could present with your exact type of symptoms.just something else to look at.you could actually have the brain and the c spine done at the very same time too.you just need to start testing things to just rule them out if nothing else as possible reasons(this is just how any real Dx is actually made with anything).sometimes this type of senation can be there without any real good reason(unknown etiology).its just the way your vascular structures are.but you do need to know for certain what may or may not actually be going on inside the areas i mentioned.you just need to know.i would have a chat with your primary about this and tell him you need some answers soon.he is the one who has to give you that referral for the MRI/MRA and c spine.if this were me, this is what i would do to.i have already had my brain and c spine scanned to the max and angiograms.i did have an actual aneurysm confirmed inside my brain but that particular symptom was not actually related to it.my only real ongoing symptom that was related to my particular aneurysm was these freaky 'heat rushes" down the back of my head into my c spine.very strange.never had one headache with mine.you just need a full eval done on this symptom.could be a something or nothing,but you wont know for sure til you get that look inside ya know?i wish you luck and hope they can pin down what is actually causing it for you soon.please keep me posted.marcia
hey rod,the more i hear about this the more i am starting to wonder if this really isn't a muscle type issue.women tend to carry their stress in there upper back and neck area while men carry it more in their heads,around the head? so the forhead and the 'banded" area surrounding it,the muscles there can tense up and tighten and create all kinds of problems.i know i get certain types of headaches in my temple area and the only thing that really helps is when i take a half a valium.it calms down alot.honestly?i think you should really try and get into see someone who does massage and have them concentrate on that head area and loosening up the muscles there and just see if anything actually changes for you.it would be worth it to just try it.if you do get relief,this could all be being caused possibly just by stress and over tensed muscles and spasms.just give it a shot,i mean it wouldn't hurt to try ya know?let me know if you go ahead with this,i really want to know if it helps at all.it "could' really be that simple.good luck,Marcia
