Brief Answer:
not to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir and welcome to healtcaremagic,

There is a tube called the eustachian tube that connects the ear to the nose. It maintains atmospheric pressure in the ear. When you suddenly get exposed to cold air, the muscles surrounding the tube undergo spasm leading to closing of the tube. This causes fall in the middle ear pressure which is responsible for the pain. The only solution to this is to avoid going in cold weather suddenly. You should let your body acclimatise to the cold weather slowly. Alternately cover your nose when you suddenly have to venture out in the cold.

Headache while sitting under the fan also can be explained. Turbulence of the air caused by a fan is transmitted to the nose when you breathe in. This causes the sinus openings in your nose to get blocked which gives rise to headache. The only solution to this problem is to avoid sitting directly under the fan.

I hope I have answered your queries.

Regards,
Dr Rajkishori Godhi

Brief Answer:
difficult to explain.

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir,

The ear canal is innervated by many different nerves. The skin in the ear canal is very thin, delicate and sensitive. Irritation of the skin by sudden cold wind can act as a trigger for a migraine attack. Other than that I cannot think of any other possibilities. Keep yourself warm is all I can say.

Hi! So recently I ve been having some strange symptoms. Sometimes parts of my body will start tingling & go numb. & at other times I ll experience sharp jabbing pains in my ribs which cause me to not be able to breathe or walk for a few seconds. I get extreme migraines & my most scary symptom is when at night always around 3 AM - 7AM I ll wake up, lounge around for an hour or so, just lay in my bed when suddenly this overwhelming ringing fills my ears so I can t hear & I lose all inability to move. Could you tell me what s happening to me?

my grandson is 4 and has cortical dysplasia. He has been off his med s phenabarbitol for 2 years now. He was playing around fine this morning and all of a sudden he started squinting his eyes and got on my shoulder and within 5 mins he threw up and is now sleeping. This has happened twice before and lasted 2 days of staying in a dark room and having to go to the ER from dehydration from not being able to keep anything down. It s like a 2 to 3 month period between episodes. I was just wondering if it s headaches doing this? Can cortical dysp. cause migraine headaches? Each time we go to hospital they don t tell us what causes this. Please help !

A 54-year-old Type-A male business executive had been experiencing migrainelike headaches. One afternoon he also experienced light-headedness, slurred speech and mildly impaired motor function on his right side. One of his colleagues rushed him to the emergency room of a nearby hospital where blood pressure, blood gases, electrolytes, and an ECG were run. His blood pressure was 195/100 mm Hg, which he said was typical of what he had experienced during the past two years. Blood gases and electrolytes were normal. The ECG showed no arrhythmias but did demonstrate a left axis deviation. The gentleman was admitted to the hospital and a cerebral angiogram was performed which showed left cerebral hemorrhaging. 1. What is the diagnosis of this individual s disorder?2. What are the major contributing factors to this disorder?3. What could have been done to prevent this problem?4. What are the early warning symptoms prior to the complication?5. Why did the ECG show a left axis deviation?6. Why was there impaired motor function on the right side from cerebral hemorrhaging on the left side?

I had an MRI which showed stable microvascular ischemia white matter changes without demylinization. I am a 34 year old, 284 lb woman with a hx of migraines with aura. The MRI was done because the aura prior to a migraine changed from the electrical current type to seeing tracers. For the past few months I have had chronic headaches, not just the hormonal migraines I typically see. I take Fioricet for my headaches because nothing else has seemed to work. I do not have high blood pressure or cholesterol issues despite being morbidly obese. I do not have pre-diabetes or other blood sugar issues. My mother has a hx of TIA s, diagnosed when she was 40. I am still waiting for a neuro appt because the neurologist wants to review all of my medical files before setting the appointment. 1. How does the radiologist know the changes are stable when I have never had these show up on an MRI before? 2. Could this be migraine related as opposed to TIA s? 3. What can I do to prevent the changes from becoming chronic?
