Had a strange experience today?

Hello all I had a very strange thing happen to me today I had a weird pain in the middle left of my neck/throat. Which made me put my fingers on and I pressed but at that point I felt a strange head rush. Which as soon as I released it, just left a slight dizzy feeling but I have an ache in that spot on the neck still as if I have strained it?

Any ideas? My INR is 2.8 With a range of 2.5 to 3.5 3.0 ideal so I would not of thought a clot was the problem? I have had a long term headache since my bike ride at hospital. They seem to think that is either my back/neck arthritis or a bad migraine? Last time I had anything like this was when I had an angina attack but that was in the middle of my throat and affected my breathing with a few other pains in different places? This is specific to one spot?

Be Well

  • You know Offcut, I think you should telephone your surgery and have a talk with someone re this, especially as it has left an ache in your neck now. It will put your mind at rest.


  • I am seeing heart consultant tomorrow.

  • Was that an already booked appointment? I sometimes get the head rush feeling and just when I think I'm on the point of passing out it passes. Do you still have the neck ache?

  • Yes in a very specific spot as if I have been bit?

  • Hi Offcut. It soinds like something might be resting on a nerve or a strain in that area which has been pulled. It's only us with AF who think everything is clots or heart related.

    As have said before I am not the doctor speaking, but get it checked out with health pro.


  • It was the head rush that got me uppity. I am seeing consultant tomorrow but it just seem to come from nowhere.

  • Good you are seeing consultant tomorrow I wondered if by pressing your neck you'd triggered the vagal reflex?

    Hope it's nothing serious.


  • Vagus nerve is a thought but good idea to be checked out. Hope it all goes well for you, keep us updated.Best wishes CD

  • They can use an external hand held monitor to rule out a clot. I had a clot diagnosed in my leg late in 2001 by a specialist thewhiteleyclinic.co.uk using one. Either way get checked out fully.

  • Insist in it

    It's only you who knows how your body felt.
