What causes shocks in the head at higher altitude?
Acute Mountain sickness!
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I a so sorry to hear about all what you have experienced. It is rather unfortunate that this is happening at a tie you are visiting and probably not letting you make the best of your time.
These symptoms of shocks in the head are typical of mountain sickness. The difference in altitude means that he body needs some time to be able to adjust to the new atmospheric variables of pressure, oxygen, carbon dioxide, etc. This needs time. There are medications that can help speed up the acclimatization
process like acetazolamide. Talk to your doctor and see whether this is something that he would love to recommend for you.
I hope this addresses your query fully. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
