I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Why do I feel contraction and expansion of the brain while breathing and twitching of eyes ?

With every heart beat it feels like my brain is being squeezed inward, with every breath it feels like my brain is being pushed outwards, it s horribly painful, worse than any headache or migraine i ve had before, my eyes won t stop twitching when I close them and the pain gets worse when I do. I can t sleep, what s wrong with me????

Hi Ambert Farrell
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

From the description you have given , it appears that you may be having Glaucoma.A condition where the pressure in eyes is increased.I advise you to visit your Optholmologist initially and get evaluated.If needed further investigations can be done to rule out any CNS problem.
Wish you speedy recovery.

Take care.

Dear Sir, My sister suffered a brain hemorrage and now is still in a coma after 72 hours. Doctors said pupil in one eye is responsive and the other is not. Her body is able to maintain blood pressure and her internal organs are functioning normally. She is taking one breath by herself while the remaining 14 is being done through the machine. Do you think there is still hope of survival or is she brain dead?

I am having several issues and am concerned. I have electrical zaps like a short in my brain, a headache behind my left eye that travels over my head to the base of my neck, I am sweating profusely, lightheaded, have difficulty sleeping, fatigued and have difficulty breathing. I am on high blood pressure medications: Metropopol;Lisinopril; Cymbalta; In January the pharmacy switched my Cymbalta to a generic form. These symptoms started about 2 weeks after I switched to the generic. I have heard that other people have had similar problems when withdrawing from Cymbalta. If that is the case how long will it take until I feel normal again? What can I do to stop the electrical surges in my brain? I seitched back to Cymbalta 2 weeks ago thinking it might help.

Hello, I am having trouble with...I get headaches from the seasonal allergies, the one thing I ve found that prevents those headaches from going into migraines is Excedrin migraine. I have Mitral valve prolapse & cannot take decongestants. I have taken the Excedrin for years with great success. Last summer I began taking magnesium and I starting breaking out in hives. I stopped the mag. & started it again, every now & then I still break out. I stopped the mag. again. I m concerned about the Excedrin but feel I have no other option. Can I all of a sudden have an allergy to Excedrin after all these years? Also, how long does it take for the magnesium to be out of my body?

hi im 29 after suffering a miscarriage i started to experience what felt like severe fatigue tested bloods slightly under the norm range for Vitamin b12 def so now have the 12 weekely jabs. i then had what doc said was a migraine aura could not see out of left eye this lasted 6 hours and returned back to norm however still had partial vision seemed blurred spoke to doc who recommended a sight test which came back norm. then after the aura i have been having on and off episodes where my i feel light headed, left side of body feels numb and heavy and and also the side of my mouth which at times i have slurred speech, i have had MRI which revealed nothing on migraine/tumours or lesions just a Tornwald cyst in my nose which they say has nothing to do with symptoms. both my mother and gran have MS and this was ruled out from MRI. consulant can not find anything wrong so is suggesting i have Hemiplegic Migraine and has prescribed Topiramate my doc does not think that migraine is the cause but has gave me tablets anyway. this is all happening once a week roughly i have bad days and good days no headache is ever present. doc says i have GAD now but i suppose anyone would if they didn t know what was wrong with them and feeling unable to function normally for a year do you think i should see a ENT cons? could it be caused from the cyst i do suffer with sinus problems and currently have Eustachian ear dysfuntion which drives me crazy!
