Hot head

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Hot head

Postby moochsid » Fri Mar 05, 2010 3:27 pm

Sorry if this has been dealt with in another thread but I couldn't find anything in a search.
My partner with SPMS has pretty severe cognitive issues and her brain fog can get quite intense at times. I have noticed that at these times her head is very hot, comparable to a flu level fever. (Whereas her hands and feet are still very cold). This is not necessarily related to room or ambient temperature either, although extreme warmth exacerbates the issue.. Sometimes this can subside within minutes and her brain clears somewhat too. She is at her best, temperature-wise, when she is horizontal in bed (inclined as advisede). Is this something I wonder that CCSVI can shed some light on?
In general one would have thought that being vertical should help 'drainage' doesn't it or am I (probably) missing a trick somewhere?

A lady with MS where I live, was having very similar issues: Terrible fog and she felt as if her back of the neck was boiling. We discussed about her issue and I told her about CCSVI and that she has nothing to lose by having herself scanned.

She has found multiple stenoses, so obvious, that they were directly visible by the ultrasound itself, without even using the echo doppler to have the blood speed measured.

When you are uprigt, the IJVs collapse. If they are already narrow, they will block completely, making it even worse.

Good luck!

Shortest joke: "We may not be able to cure MS but we can manage its symptoms."

I often have the impression that the right half of my head is very hot, especially my ear. I don't why.
