  1. I feel a weird feeling in my neck, it'd so hard to describe, I'm always dizzy, brain fog, out of body experience, head pressure, when I swallow its like a jerk in my neck. It didn't start until I had covid though, but I do have Renal Nutcracker Syndrome, I wonder if it's related? I hope you answer.

  3. Been suffering from head pressure, tinnitus and some vision issues for almost two years now. Countless doctors and tests. Finally saw a neurologist who did an MRA / MRV and found stenosis on both my IJV. We then did balloon angioplasty and cerebral angiogram and discovered that my left IJV is completely occluded by my C1 transverse process.

    I am now working with a neurosurgeon who is looking into the option of doing C1 transverse process resection and then if needed we can do a stent. The occlusion is so bad they couldn't even get a micro catheter up my left IJV.

  4. I have EDS, cranial cervical instability, brain fluid leakage, POTS, venous insufficiency, autonomic system issues. Trying to watch these videos if there is a solution. I’m about ready to go on disability and loose my business and just about everything.
    So many other symptoms I didn’t mention because I didn’t realize could be replayed or forgot. Headache, eye pressure, tinnitus, nausea,

    I’m unaware of a specialist in Utah that does this level of testing. I had to go to Colorado for my Chiari check. Where are you located.

  5. So I've been having swallowing issues, a feeling that the hyoid or thyroid cartilage is jabbing my throat. Tension from the throat to the collar bone when swallowing. After watching this I realized I had a period of time where just rolling from one side to the other in bed would cause dizziness and anxiety that would go away in about 5 seconds. I'm becoming more and more confident that I need to come see you.

  7. Great video. Thankyou. As someonr with POTd swollen right neck lyphnode severe pressure in eyes, memory issues, neck locking up and seeing smoky floaters in eyes and autonomic dysfunction is worsening. Anyone in Australia Victoria that can help with this. Noone seems to know how to deal with cervical instability. Chiro and oesto isnt helping and neurologists trying to treat symptoms instead of root cause. Thankyou

  9. I know this video is a few months old, but I wanted to share both how helpful this video is to so many people, and also to share some encouragement for anyone struggling with these issues. I had surgery March 25, 2021 to decompress my jugular vein at the age of 24 and it has been lifechanging. My cranial surgeon and vascular surgeon both said that there were some unique aspects to my compression that they had not seen prior, which is interesting because the both do a lot of these procedures. I hope sharing my story can give someone hope that their symptoms may be treatable at least in part and to keep searching for answers. My story is quite long but I tried to share as much of my symptoms, journey to diagnosis, surgical process, and recovery as I could.

    My story: for background I have a degree in neuroscience with a focus on the overlap/meeting of psychology and neurobiology, and a strong personal and academic interest in this field. I had symptoms of intracranial hypertension and jugular compression for most of my life – I remember being kept awake at night due to the pulsatile tinnitus, and I struggled with dysautonomia from a young age, however it significantly worsened over time. At 19 I was diagnosed with retrobulbar optic neuritis, later clarified to papilledema, and suspected intracranial hypertension. I had treatment resistant "migraines" my entire life which we now believe were high pressure headaches. The pressure was agonizing, and I had severe memory, executive function, attention and focus, and other impairments – during high pressure episodes, I would call my boyfriend "mom" or make other really weird word placement errors – I knew who he was but my brain kept saying the wrong terms. I was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, severe mast cell activation syndrome, dysautonomia (POTS, innapropriate sinus tachycardia, and small fiber polyneuropathy secondary to autoimmune disease which I was also diagnosed with) at 21. Until this point I had been told my symptoms were psychosomatic or consistent with hypochondria by half a dozen doctors and had been in psychological treatment for over a decade without any significant improvement in my symptoms.

    I had significant dysautonomia my entire life, but in my early 20's it began worsening rapidly and became potentially dangerous. I would have bouts of severe hypertension of 180/140 or higher with my pulse being close to 200bpm at rest, but if they gave me even the lowest dose of beta blocker I would plummet to extremely low stats (ie 25mg of metoprolol tartrate inpatient dropped me to 60/40 and 45bpm) and the many specialists consulted while I was in hospital could not identify why my blood pressure was so high, or why very basic positional changes – or even just turning my head – would radically change my pulse and blood pressure, far more than consistent with POTS. I also had steadily worsening, agonizing nerve pain in my throat along the innervation of the left glossopharyngeal nerve, radiating down my left arm to mimic thoracic outlet syndrome (interestingly, a published abstract found a significant percentage of patients with TOS symptoms but negative in testing for TOS did in fact have significant jugular compression), and a sensation I described as scraping or grating feeling and sounding, any time I swallowed, sang or talked excitedly, or touched the middle of my throat. I had to drop out of my vocal performance program as a result of singing causing agonizing pain and causing me to almost pass out. Likewise I could not bend over to grab something I dropped for instance without almost fully passing out. My PT's and I noted that the muscles down the left side of my neck and throat were essentially permanently contracted and stiff, pulling my hyoid and everything near it to the left, and no amount of manual physical therapy work (3x a week for 2 years) was able to get the muscles and fascia to relax.

    My symptoms became so severe that I required a custom wheelchair as just brief periods standing would skyrocket my blood pressure and pulse, and placement of a central line for fluid maintenance as my body did not seem to take in the right amount of fluids by mouth, and without large volumes of IV fluids my tachycardia was constant instead of positional. I couldn't tolerate even light, reclined exercise at this point, had stopped pursuing my academics due to brain fog and increasing difficulty with cognitive function, my mood and emotional states were unpredictable, and my sensitivity to light and sound were often intolerable. My EDS specialist referred me to Dr. Edward Hepworth, a cranial ENT who specializes in disorders of CSF and blood flow such as cranial leaks, IIH, Eagle Syndrome, etc., and who I am very lucky to live just 30 minutes from. He began performing testing as he noted that adding up my symptoms of IIH and optic nerve damage and my symptoms of severe and positional autonomic dysfunction, this suggested some kind of problem with my circulatory system. He had me tested for a PFO first and looked at my cranial veins. Unfortunately my only drug allergy is a severe anaphylaxis response to iodonated contrast even with extensive premedication, so this made identifying vascular involvement in my case more difficult, as contrast CT is often the gold standard for this kind of diagnosis.

  14. Thank you so much for the information.
    I feel extreme pressure in my head after having sex. The more sex I do worst it gets, and the muscles behind my jaw and just the front of my ear starts swelling or getting hard.
    This situation changes my behaviour, I start getting angry very quickly, and start isolating myself.

    I have been to too many doctors, have done MRI, CT scan of my brain, used tryptanole medication to relax. But nothing works.

    I seek advice from you, I can have an pay for your time if you can consult with me about my health issue.

    I will be very grateful.

  15. We need to get Dr. Hauser on The Dr. Oz Show! Can’t believe NOBODY else in medicine is talking about this topic or specialty— and how much time, money, and stress it can save so many people with “mysterious” symptoms who can FINALLY get themselves diagnosed + treated properly!

  16. Anyone you can recommend in the Miami area? Everytime I stand up after sitting for awhile I have pressure on my entire head that feels like its going to explode.

  17. I've had injections I've had two neck surgeries. I also did fall not that long ago maybe a year ago smashed my head into the floor I thought my whole head busted open. I've had a lot of trauma to the neck. Please continue to read I beg you…… I felt like the healthiest person ever even after that car accident in 2005 where I flew 100 ft out of window of a vehicle. One day I fell down to the ground on one knee and I got up and stretched in the next morning I woke up with pain in my neck I went and got it checked out and there was a small pea size lump. It's grown over the years I started experiencing a burning pinching stabbing every pain you could think of in my neck to the point where when I flares up by midday I feel like I'm going to lose my mind. It's like having dry socket in your neck. I'm begging you I want to know if I could start to go fund me but I need help I feel all alone nobody understands. Over the past years I do so much around the house but I can't hold a job because I can't sit too long. I used to get comfort when I stood up unfortunately after a visit with physical therapy where the woman yanked my neck really really hard and put her knee on my shoulder which I know isn't normal. I started having an numbness in my thoracic. I get very bad muscle spasms there. But the pain and my spine and my neck and the back of my head never ever ever goes away. I need to take care of my son He is one kidney and stage two kidney disease. I watched all your videos You seem like the only doctor who understands

  18. I've been going through this ever since about 6 years ago I did fly a hundred feet out of window and I was 19 I'm 35 now. I have four kids and a four-year-old son. My relationships fall apart and I've gotten off all the meds before nothing makes the pain go away not even being on meds.

  19. I need to get into your office like ASAP. I've been being passed around from doctor to doctor and I know my personality and I am not the same person I used to be. Can you please give me the address? Everything that you've been explaining in these videos is me.
