Actually I haven t written here for a while but maybe it is time again. I have concluded a few things about this condition.
First of all, everyone who gets a pain from the head while jumping should go to the doctor. There are possibly life threatning causes to this, including brain tumor, aneurysms and others. So go to the doctor.
Second, even if we all have the same symptoms it is not sure that we all have the same cause of the symptoms. We should bear this in mind.
Third, I have been studying this question a lot and to this date the two best suggestions that I can come up with are the following:
1, Intracranial hypotension. Meaning that some of the cerebrospinal fluid that should be surrounding our brains and keep it in place is leaking out, causing our brains to be more sensitive to movements. People who suffer from this generally have hard times coping with G-forces. Many of them can not even stand up ( that is, can not even take one G-force). This is because their brains ARE literally moving to much in their skulls. This condition is unfortunately very hard to diagnose in less severe cases. It is diagnosed with a MRI with gadolinium contrast. If you do a MRA (with or without contrast) it will not show. If you do a ct-scan it will not show. If you do a MRI without contrast it will not show. MRI with contrast is the only way to spot it. And you will also need a skilled neurologist to look at the pictures because otherwise it will be missed.
2, It is some kind of migraine-like strange behavior among the cerebral blood vessels. For example, the arteries could be too narrow at one point causing the blood vessels there after to open too widely to compensate. This could be treated with propranolol or other preventive migraine medicine which besides from lowering your pulse also regulates the diameter of your blood vessels, bringing back any abnormality to normal (kind of like a reboot of your blood vessels). It can be worth a try.
The last thing I want to say is that if you do find a solution to your problems, please remember to post it so that as many sufferers as possible among us can be helped back to a normal life.View Thread
No, it is not caused by stress. I have had this for a long time and during that time I have been stressed, I have been not stressed, I have been worried, I have been not worried; no matter what, the symptoms stay the same.
It is a low pressure head pain. Everybody who has this knows that it gets better if you hold your breath and increase the abdominal pressure (like a g-manouver). But what is causing this low pressure, if it is a leak of cerebrospinal fluid, low blood pressure in the head, an inflammation, hormone changes, autonomic dysfunction, early parkinson or a pinched nerve; well we just don't know that yet.
It is the blood moving in the head that we feel, I'll give you that, but this type of blood flow is abnormal and it has an underlying cause. We just haven't figured out which one it is yet. But we will get there, believe me, we will get there;).
In the mean time I can just congratulate you if you no longer suffer from this. I will get there too one day.

Hi Edwards2! Hope your symptoms will disappear again. I think the neck injury could be related. You could have a pinched nerve or a pinched blood vessel for example. Let us know how it goes!View Thread
Don't know if anyone is really writing here still but me. Anyway, today I met a new cool doctor. She immediately put me on the electrocardiogram. She reacted on my low pulse. She said maybe that's what is causing the headaches. Therefore it should be interesting to hear if anyone else here also has a low pulse. Or if you don't, that is equally interesting of coarse:). Later this week I will see the ENT. Anyway, have a nice day!View Thread
