I have a veritange symptom. The doctor doesn't even know what I mean when I describe it, and says it is all in my head (well, yes - I suppose she is right!)
It is basically a strong throbbing sensation in the arteries at the back of my neck and head, sometimes with a slight headache feeling and often with tension in upper back/neck. I am not sure quite what causes it although I believe some foods, stress and tension make it worse. I don't get it every day and when I am sitting or standing it is much less noticeable, but it makes it impossible to sleep when it happens as it is much worse lying down.
Its often accompanied by feeling too hot but having a low core temperature (below 36 C).
I figure it might be high blood pressure or some weird type of migraine.
The only possible reason for it that Dr Google came up with were slightly terrifying things like a blocked artery, encephalitis, etc which concerned me initially but then I thought, well I'd probably already be dead if that was the case
As I say the doctor thinks I have a good imagination and tension headaches didn't quite fit the description, so I am not sure.
So I thought I'd give it a shot and see if anyone else has had this and or knew anything about it.
Thank you loads
