Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

Since mid 2002 I have had a strange and frustrating problem whereby the left side of my head, forehead and neck constantly has a tight or spongy feeling (especially the left side of head and forehead) and I have tried many things over the years to solve the problem such as hayfever medication, eye specialists, nose specialists, chiropracter, physio, accupuncture and a MRI scan that was clear (because of the tightness of the forehead above my left eye it has distorted my perception of my nose, (strange), which always appears shadowy and transparent to me).

Recently I've also started to realise that I often have a similar tight/tingly feeling along my left leg and the lower left side of my back (and i suppose upper left side as well) often feels tight and uncomfortable.

I was wondering whether its possible that these symptoms could be caused by a damaged vein(s) I've had for quite a while along the lower left side of my abdoment/navel and whether that could have caused some circulatory problem that has affected the left side of my body (most acutely would be the left side of my head, left side of forehead and left leg).

I have seen many different health professionals over the years and both the symptoms and the mystery of the health problem have been very frustrating for me however I have another appointment with a different specialist in early April to have this addressed.

Am I now finally heading in the right direction?

Thank you.

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

just exactly what type of damage do you have to that area to the veins?generally,depending upon what your actual damaged area is,things happening that far down would not really affect the head,you know what i mean?if the damaged area were ABOVE the head,well then it could possibly be a problem.unless you have some level of huge damage down there,i seroiusly doubt they would really be possibly connected.i am thinking spinal problems.there are sooo many different types of c spine and upper thorasic problems you can have that would definitely affect the facial areas because of cranial nerve involvement.if something in the spine is irritating the heck out of nerves(which would then affect the muslces to them)it could be a possible source.what you described with your neck?have they ever actually done an MRI on at least your c spine?just what exactly did they do that MRI on,just your head/brain?do you have a copy of the results,the radiologists report?if not,get one and read thru it for yourself.sooo many docs just simply do not actually tell you everything that is actually found in an MRI or other reports.its a sick thing to do but this happens over and over to people everyday.it also happened to me.specialists tend to do this the most.i would also gather up every single record that has been generated on this problem from every doc who has treated you and get every test result and keep this all in your own set of records.i HAD to start doing this just to try and stay on top of all my medical issues.it does help,plus you can read thru everything yourself and then ask questions about possible issues you were never told about.unfortuently i can almost guarentee you that you will find something in those records that no one happened to mention to you.it happens that often.

but i would seriously start looking at the c spine as a possible source if the head MRI came up clear.but you do need a copy of that in order to really know what actually did or did not show on that MRI.while it is indeed possible that your vascular damage 'could' bethe source of your leg issues,this could also be stemming from the c spine or some other spinal level above the legs too.it all comes down to testing and ruling out things.but DO get all of your records.let me know what you find out.

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

I did see a local chiropractor for 7 months between December 2006 - June 2007 yet over that time he kept assuring me he understood the problem and showed scans done via his lap top of my spine which showed the big "red lines" being reduced over the months especially on the left side of my body.

I ended up leaving them because I was running out of money and because I didn't believe he quite knew what he was talking about.

I hope I didn't leave something that could have potentially have helped me but initially he said the treatment would be 6 weeks and 7 months later I was skeptical and running out of money so I left.

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

the one BIG thing you need to always remember with going to any chiro,espescially when it involves the neck/c spine area is that unless they or you have had an actual MRI done of that area FIRST,whatever that chiro does to you as far as any real adjustments,are pretty much 'blind' as far as him not really knowing just what lies under the vertebrae or even IN your actual spinal cord that could in some cases,spell disaster for you in some way.you just really have no clue as to what lies within the spine til that MRI shows it to you.the situation i had with a vascular malformation that was just there from birth,but i had no real clue it was there,well if i had gone to the chiro like i had contemplated for a bit there,without that MRI,this thing would have bled in a really bad way and possibly paralyzed me from even one adjustment.you just wont know what you are really dealing with til you look,you know what i mean?alot of people,espescially when dealing with the much more highly innervated c spine area,have suffered some pretty devistating consequences only becasue of the chiro adjustments that were done without them knowing what they even did to a particular area til the crap hit the fan.personally,i would never ever seek out a chiro til i had had an MRI done on that area and also a consult with either a neuro or an ortho,just to be certain something couldn't possibly be made worse by adjustments.you just need to know BEFORE seeking out a chiro.they can do great things with the right type of problem or cause you many more problems than you would have had had you NOT seen them for adjustments.each individual case is different.did you actually ever have a c spine MRI done?

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

I've had a regular head MRI scan but I've never had an actual C Spine MRI Scan.

When I originally went to the chiro in December 2006 he did a back X-Ray and every 6 weeks would scan my neck and back using his lap top which would show "red bars" on either side of my neck and back and how over time apparently they would be reduced but my symptoms never changed (in fact the tight/tingly feeling in my left leg has become more pronounced lately).

If an MRI scan of the C Spine would have been so important surely he would have brought it up? Sounds strange that he didn't considered that apparently would have been able to pinpoint the problem.

I have an appointment April 3rd to see a specialist regarding whether it is a vascular problem and failing that I was told I might just have to go to the emergency department of a hospital and wait to be seen to complain about this again.

I suppose I could get a referral to get a C Spine MRI scan done?

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

Feelbad is correct.
As a back patient I would neverlet a chiro touch me without a mri and an OK from my spine doc with specific directions as to what he wants him to accomplish.

I watched my mother spend more money than i care to admit and she ended up with surgery after this guy promised to "make her pain go away." The surgery ended her problems once and for all. and cleared up the damage that the chiro did.

Go to a good back doctor, get an MRI and see what the issue is that is causing the problems. Good luck.

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

the thing about chiros is they really have no real reason to want to have you have that MRI since what they do is just 'structural' adjustments,despite the fact they DO know there are certain risks involved in what they actually do in certain patients with certain conditions.the more reputable ones would probably at least recommend it tho.afterall,this could be a huge liability depending upon anything that could happen.but most never bother to do that MRI referral or even tell you to get one.i would really highly recommend you go that route just to see what i really going on in your c spine area.just what exactly is the nature of that vascular damage you are having checked out?what caused it?

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

In December 06' the chiro did an X-ray and said something about the bottom of my spine not being entirely straight but a C Spine MRI scan would specifically show what the problem is and how to solve it?

I feel like lately the heavy/tight feeling in my left leg has been worse as has been the lower left side of my back yet it is the tightness along the left side of my head and forehead that has been the most consistent/noticeable over the last few years as the tightness along the left side of my forehead has distorted my perception to an extent. So a specific C Spine problem could be causing all this?

The vascular problem I think has been around since about 2002 and originates at the lower left side of my navel/upper part of my left groin and I never thought previously it could have been the cause because I didn't think it was possible but now that its 5 years on I think anything is possible. As I believe it runs into my left leg that why maybe I was thinking that led to how the left leg feels and perhaps also the other "left side" symptoms?

Thanks again.

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

is that vascular problem something thatwas actually a diagnosed condition,or just something you may think is wrong?has it been evaluated by your doc at anytime?if so,what did he say about it?if the chiro recommended an MRI of your c spine why didn't you have one?i really don't see quite how he connceted the c spine and the lower spine tho.thats a pretty wide area.it is al connected but i just don't quite get that logic.

the c spine just carries some of the actual nerves(cranials)that start up inyour head,go down thru the c spine area and then loop back up again.this is how it is entirely possible to have a problem in the head/face and have it stemming froma possible problem within the c spine somewhere.there is also a junction of some of the nerves that meet right between the c 7 and the T 1 vertebrae.i would just really try getting the MRI done up there and see if it shows something.FB

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

Last week I had 3 separate back/spinal CT scans done and two of them were clear one of them said I had a 'small herniation' but my G.P. said that wouldn't be responsible for the symptoms I've described where I have the constant tight feeling along the left side of my head, forehead and neck (and well as mildly having that feeling along the left side of my back).

I've had this since mid 2002 and I feel like I'm running out of options to check out although I have an appointment to see a specialist at the end of april to ask whether what appears to me to be a 'damaged vein' in a region of the (left side) of the body that may be related to a urological concern so thats the specialist I'm seeing in late april. My theory there is that perhaps a vascular problem on the left side has migrated up along the left side of my body causing these symptoms.

Beyond that, the only other thing I can think of is my left ear which I had a bad habit of playing with when I was younger and now believe it to be 'thinner' than my right ear and feels more sensitive than the right ear and since the 'tight/spongy' symptoms are located along the left side of my head (and occasional "left head headaches") and forehead I thought that perhaps the 'damaged' skin or cartledge of the left ear could be causing it although when I saw an ear specialist and after he had checked my hearing (despite me saying the hearing was not a problem) he was very dismissive of the idea that the left ear was connected with the symptoms. Would it be a good idea to see a dermatologist or something that might know something about the skin or cartledge deteriorating that could cause this or was the ear specialist basically correct?

I had a MRI scan of my brain in 2005 that was clear however could it be a good idea to get another scan done? Is it possible that if a part of the brain was responsible that in 2005, for some reason, it didn't show up but the problem could actually be residing there and could potentially be seen on a new scan? Or is it most reasonable to conclude that if the 2005 scan was clear then why should a new scan be any different?

The last few weeks I feel like my symptoms have felt worse along the left side of my back and the 'tightness' along the left side of my head and forehead goes through periods, every so often, of feeling exceedingly tight thus frustrating as I feel like I can't turn around and look at people or talk to people without feeling weird (especially depending upon how busy or noisy a room is or the degree of light in the room).

I just want to get better and I absolutely hate that I've had this as long as I have and I feel like I simply havn't truly enjoyed doing much for at least 5 and a half years. More specifically, I just havn't felt like my normal self since 2002 basically and it's very frustrating (however, I admit that my mental outlook is also a component of the problem because since I went into 2003 while still having these symptoms I dug my heels into the ground and became very stubborn, stopped reading (although I can still read normally I prefer not to read books while I have this because of the 'tight' symptoms along the left side of my forehead and head which have affected my perception to an extent) and stopped taking things in properly, therefore have been unhappy).

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

glad you had some scans done. just a quick question regarding them? do YOU actually have all copies of them in YOUR possession? if not,get them and read thru them for yourself. the thing here is that most docs(spescially specialists) simply do not actually tell you everything that is actually found in your very own MRI reports. this is where YOU need to be an advocate for yourself and double check everything by getting all your own copies of all test results and obtaining,periodically,your own medical records from any doc who is treating or has treated you. honestly,just going thru all this stuff can show alot of things that you simply were never told about or Dx you had that were never actually documented. it IS very revealing in some cases. i started doing this many years ago when i had a couple of different specialists withhold very crucial info from me that was actually hard Dx that were in my own MRI reports. it is really crucial that you keep getting those copies and keeping everything in a nice little file or expanding type folder. espescially in your case with ongoing symptoms and no hard Dx yet. just keep them and bring that folder to every appt you have so you have all your own info right there.

there could have been things actually found in that MRI or CTs that 'could' possibly explain at least some of your symptoms. there are things that cause problems that if your doc is not aware of the potential or just doesn't have enough experience in dealing with,can be totally blown off by him or her and you not told about. this is why you really need those copies of all of your stuff. what any doc actually knows comes down in many cases to 'their' overall experience and knowledge of a particular condition. believe me, some docs are just totally cluelss in certain situations with dealing with certain conditions/probelms or potential problems.

i can't help thinking,in just the way you keep describing the 'head" symptoms,that 'tightness'?,that there just has to be some level of a muscular component going on, this could stem from something that is just irritating the nerves which in turn causes the muscles to contract,or over tighten themselves. this is just what irritated or inflammed nerves can do to muscle. i have this problem in a very huge way in my head(base of skull area) and thru my upper back and shoulders that is stemming from a c spine mess involving many levels and spinal cord injury too. this can create what are called trigger points? these are wads of contracted up muscle and tissue that you can in some cases,actually feel under your skin. they would also kind of 'hurt' when pressed?but this would be stemming from in most cases,the c spine area,even the head tightness. its all connected.

you also really need to find out what exactly IS the level of the possible vascular issue down below. like i mentioned before,it is very unusual to have something "down' that would actually affect something 'above' you know what i mean(tho it 'could' in some cases affect the flow return)? just having a simple ultraound done on that area where you think there is some problem with the vessels would show how well the blood is actually flowing thru the vessels there. i had to have this done on my legs looking for possible blood clots. they use a doppler tool to check this. it would show if there is anything affecting or causeing a lower flow velocity within that area. from what you have stated as symptoms,i really just don;t think these two seperate things could be related,but i am not a doc,just going on my own experience here. it just wouldn't 'seem' likely,put it that way.

to answer some of your questions,i really don't think the ear thing would be actually causing you what you described,mostly since the outter ear is just cartiledge without alot of other structures that would really be affecting what you are feeling. second, the CTs? while thay can be great for certain findings,they just simply cannot see down to the nerve and cord level really well, no where near as good as an MRI could.

as for that 05 MRI? its old,espescially with certain conditions or vascular problems that could have developed with time or actually be showing itself better now. most specialists wont even except any MRIs that are more than six months old,just becasue in some cases,changes can occur that quickly. i would highly suggest that you have that redone and make certain they use a contrasting agent too. this just better highlights certain areas that would not normally show up really well without it.

but the really important thing for you to do right now,is obtain all of your very own copies of everything,from all test results to all medical records from any doc that has actually touched you,this would also include records from any ER vists as well. i can almost guarentee you that you will read something in one of these test results or your medical records that you were just never actually told about, thats just how common this practice of witholding info actually is. it is rather sick,but unfortuently very true.

espescially in your particular situation with ongoing symptoms,testing and many docs,it really IS just crucial to you and actually finally finding out whats wrong to obtain everything that has been generated by visits to many docs and most importantly,the rad results. if you do not have a copy of that 05 MRI,get that too, whoever actually ordered that MRI has a copy of those results you can obtain. it would be a good baseline for any doc to work from if you have that repeat scan done.

it really is important at this point to just start gathering records and test results.really important. i can tell you from my many experiences with specialists and MRI and CT results,you WILL see something in at least one of those scans that you really do need to know about. something is casuing your ongoing symptoms here or you wouldn;t be feeling what you are feeling ya know? even a herniation,depending upon just where it actually is and how bad and what it is affecting could be a good reason too. you just NEED those records/test results.

unfortunetly in this day and age with very busy docs,it is sometimes up to us to just take matters into our own hands just to assure that the right things are being done and we are being told everything we really do NEED to just know about ourselves. i wish you luck and hopefully you will find another possible casue once you have gotten your results for yourself. just post the summaries of those results here and i will try and help with whatever i can. now start making some phone calls to every place that has touched you or tested you.

all you have to do is tell them you need copies of records and they will send you out a release of info for you to sign and send back to them. then in about within a week or so,your records will just start showing up in your own mailbox. i do this like every six months depending on how things have been going. its really rather easy and simple for a person to do. you just really do need them. please let me know just what you find out,K?

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

My G.P. did give me the three C.T. results and the explanations that went with them and only the second CT scan said there was a "small herniation" though the G.P. felt that would not be responsible for my symptoms though do you suspect it could possibly be and I should see an Orthopedic?

Otherwise, if that is not what is responsible, my left ear isn't, and a vasuclar problem possibly migrating north along the left side of my back, neck and head isn't the problem then the only thing left I can think of trying is getting another head MRI scan (I have the 05' scan on disc as I had to get it last year when I went to see a neurologist who said it wasn't a neurological problem, after doing a standard test, and suggested muscle relaxants which didn't work).

Over the last few weeks its felt like the tight/'spongy' feeling along the left side of my forehead, head and neck has felt much more pronounced lately and I've decided I've had enough and its time to get rid of it. And, I'm so sick of constantly perceiving the "two sides of my nose as being two separate 'shadowy' images" which is a result of the tightness along the left side of my forehead and head (And what is so frustrating is no one understanding this or comprehending that the tightness of the left side of the forehead can cause this which I'm sure is what has been causing it).

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

considering that nothing showed up on the CT that really jumped out as a possible culprit,i would really get another MRI done,on your head and c spine(these are just the more key areas for what you are experiencing). the MRI just sees much deeper than a plain CT can. getting the contrasted MRI would be ideal for trying to find 'something'. the MRI can see down to more of the nerve level and the spinal cord level,a CT just cannot give you that clarity. what you are feeling up in your head just really sounds muscle/nerve related. it could be a vascular issue too,but the symptoms would lead more towards nerve which is affecting the muscle. just curious if you have ever seen an eye doc for a full eval done on your eyes?

at this point i would just really push for the brain and c spine MRI,with contrast. the contrast would really highlight some key areas that don;t always show well on certain MRI angles. i still think you are dealing with two seperate issues there with your upper and lower body issues. like i mentioned in the other post,getting an ultrasound on that area you think has some level of damage(if possible) really would help just to show bloodflow thru there. or if it is too deep,an MRI of that area may help to really see if the vascular problems are actually even an issue for you. you just need to really know what is affecting what.

you just need the best types of testing done with the right scans on the right areas to really show what is going on at a much deeper level. an MRI with the contrast would just be ideal for your brain and c spine areas. i really do think this would be the best possible test for what you are trying to find at this point. while CTs are really great at showing bone and hard structures,they just cannot get to that in depth area to see at where you need to see and just what you need to see. please let me know what you find out jerry.

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

I initially thought my problem was either a strange hayfever problem or a problem with my eyes (because of how the tightness makes me perceive my nose) so I had my eyes checked by an optometrist in 2002 and 2005 but everything was fine.

Also, late last year I had an X-Ray done of my neck but that didn't find anything strange.

I believe the scan of my head/brain I had in 05' was an MRI scan (well at the time I thought it was a CAT scan but the neurologist who checked the results on the disc I showed him last november said it was an MRI scan) yet that scan revealed nothing although I didn't have contrast with that.

So you believe that while a MRI scan in 2005 didn't show anything unusual that another MRI could perhaps because more time has passed thus could allow for the cause of the symptoms to be picked up? Or perhaps with contrast something could be picked up that wasn't last time?

So despite an X-Ray showing nothing unusual with my neck it would be good to get an MRI of the neck/c spine?

I'm wondering whether the neurologist I saw accidentally thought the 05' scan was an MRI because generally MRI's are much less frequently referred to here in Australia because of the associated cost so perhaps I could say to the G.P. I think my last scan may have just been CT now I need a proper MRI (or I suppose I could call the hospital where I had the 05' scan to find out whether it was an MRI or CAT scan).

Thanks again.

P.S. Sometimes, when I move my head around (usually to the left) it can feel quite tight at the left side of the base of the neck and sometimes I feel what feels like little 'cracks' at that lower left base of my neck.

Re: Damaged Vein(s) Causing My Health Problem?

Okay, my latest theory is that my symptoms (tightness around the left side of my head, forehead and neck) is the result of a thyroid problem?

Are there any thyroid problems that have symptoms that correspond with my symptoms?

How do thyroid problems arise and how are they usually diagnosed and resolved?

Perhaps it is Hyperthyroidism? And, would a blood test be a good move as they would show if it was a thyroid problem?

Thanks again.
