Head pressure, pulsating feeling? Chiari?

Hey I just had a awful feeling & trying to figure out what it was. I was standing up after putting eggs in the incubator. I didn't stand up fast but just as I started to stand I had this pressure in my head. It didn't hurt but it was pressure with a throbbing/pulsating feeling... I stood up & was afraid I was going to pass out or something bad was gonna happen... It lasted probably 30-60 seconds. It wasn't a dizzy spell or anything like that. I still feel this head pressure like in my sinus area. I haven't had allergy symptoms or anything... I looked up something called Chiari & symptoms are familiar but Fibro is like that...

Re: Head pressure, pulsating feeling? Chiari?

Sounds like a sinus thing to me. Are the sinuses blocked at all since this happened? Never heard of that Chiari

I didn't have any probs before it happen. But I have a sinus pressure now. I have had pressure in my head for years, nothing new, but this was so weird, scary.

Maybe try sniffing a little steam to see if that relieves the pressure some.
Hope this passes quickly for you.

Re: Head pressure, pulsating feeling? Chiari?

Tori, I know only too well that feeling. I am pretty sure it is blood pressure related. With me it is. And you don't have to stand up fast either. Sometimes if I am driving somewhere, get out and walk into a store it happens, not just from being sitting, or bent down. It is definitely a weird feeling, but like no other so I am pretty confident I know what you mean. I haven't had it happen to me in a long time. Now I am dealing with vertigo, but I am thinking maybe it is because I increased my BP meds back when my eye capillaries burst. Is your blood pressure usually normal? I know you are hypothyroid, sometimes that can make you feel wonky as you know at times. I am going to look up that chiari stuff, I never heard that before..love ya girlie..xoxo
