I have sensation like an ice cold blood rush in my head after intracranial bypass

Hello. I am five months post an intracranial bypass and a clip on two aneurysms. I have three that still remain and to monitor. I suddenly started feeling the sensation of what I would describe as an ice cold blood rush I m my head . No pain, just as if there is ice rushing throughout my brain? I am not alarmed but do however respect my condition and wanted to know if there was any cause for concern. Thank you very much for your time.

hi welcome to healyhcaremagic
do not panic..this is cos of the intracranial will take some time for you to feel better..watchout for other symptons like fever,vomiting,severe headache,neckpain and dizziness..your progress will be gradual and do getback to your surgeon if it aggravates

Hi. My name is Jessica. I am 16 years old and already having all kinds of health problems. My main concerns are about my main problem that s been going on for about a year now. One morning I woke up after my cold and everything that moved by left streeks. It still happens 24/7 to this day. I have head rushes and black out about once every other day. I can t see in the dark due to dark green fuzz. I see red and blue streaks when it begins to get dark outside. I have started having vertigo recently along with horrible migraines that move all around my head and throb. I have gone to the doctors but I have braces. So they can t take an MRI. I have seen an eye doctor but he said it wasn t my eyes and that he could not help me. Could you please? Anything will help. I m so tired of all this and I would like some possible answers. Thank you so much! I do not have money but I need help.. I m scared and worried. Please contact me at my email. - Jess

About 2 -3 months ago, the hot water wasn t working and I was in a rush for work so I washed my hair using cold water from the shower head. It was a big mistake - my head was very painful, it felt like the my head was sizzling and I couldn t bear it. I knew it was the veins in my head that were hurting because they were swollen and tender and painful. I dried my hair and got my head warm again , it was tender and sore for a bit, there were small bumps on my head for a little bit but it calmed down. Ever since, whenever my head got cold or hot, the veins in my head are are painful, sometimes unbearable. It has got much worse recently I can t have a shower without my head getting really painful. Over the last few days I have been feeling rough - achey and tired, very sleepy, I think I have a temperature - hot and cold, feeling generally unwell and my neck has been feeling a bit sore. I don t know if they are connected or not (I do have M.E which I was diagnosed with when I was thirteen and I am now 25, it does disrupt my life - in particular, I get very painful legs and I don t have as much energy as other people my age. I have just started a new job which I enjoy but am struggling with a little and finding very tiring). Is this common - the painful veins in my head? I wondered if it was something to do with bad circulation - I get very cold feet, but they aren t blue or anything. Is there anything I can do to calm it down and sort my head out? Thanks for all your help

I had a discectomy 2wks ago for a ruptured disk. Since then I have had several bouts of nausea, vomiting and either constipation or diarrhea. I had my post op followup today but I wasnt given an opportunity to speak or let anyone know how i was feeling. Upright, check- ok see you in a month type appt. I no longer get any hunger pains at all, food smells and tastes bad. Should I be concerned with this plus the vomiting, (I wake up with severe headaches and usually vomit soon after). Is this normal?

I started taking aspiren regimen 3 days ago without asking my doctor I have rapid heart beat and heart palpatations and anxiety disorder. I thought it would help, I felt better for last three days no rapid heartbeat as bad as it usually is but got severe headaches. Should I continue taking it today, also I thought it would be good for arthritis in my lower back, but the headaches terrible. My blood pressure has been low for the last month 110 over 78 and since taking the regimen it has gone up to 120 to 130 I think that s a better blood pressure

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much
