FROM OUR EXPERTS
Since July of 2006, I have been experiencing very strange visual sensations (deja vu - seeing repetitive visions of experiences or thoughts regarding insignificant people that I have known in my life as well as physiological changes (a perceived drop in blood pressure, face paling, etc.) during numerous very short 20 to 30 second episodes. These episodes occur 4 to 5 times a year - usually seasonal and I experience about 10 -15 of them over the course of 2 days or so each time. A headache usually precedes them as does a change in my taste buds (things are tasteless or metallic tasting for a couple of days). After the episodes begin to wane (very few after a day or so), I experience a heightened sense in everything (an alertness, a heightened awareness of life).

I am experiencing them today (it's a weirdness I find difficult to explain but at times they are very fear provoking)...
Full Question: Normally, my blood pressure runs 105/65, but during a migraine it goes up to 185/120 (average) with my pulse rate approximately 120-140. I understand the correlation between my migraine causing my blood pressure to go up, then the pain causes my blood pressure to increase more, then my high blood pressure makes my head hurt worse, turning into a vicious cycle. I've tried all the beta blockers, calcium-channel blockers, and ACE inhibitors but they do not control by blood pressure during a migraine -- the only way to bring it down is to get control of the pain and end the migraine. My question is why when my blood pressure goes up so high, I feel so cold and shiver uncontrollably. My teeth will even chatter. I feel like I'm freezing, even if it's 90 degrees. I'm sure there's a vascular explanation. Can you explain? Answer: Hello; Sometime, overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system during a migraine can result in cold extremities and increased blood...

High blood pressure or hypertension is a cardiovascular disease that is very difficult to detect. Medical professionals often diagnose high blood pressure when they are conducting regular annual checkups. The symptoms and signs of high blood pressure are extremely subtle; therefore, you may live with the disease for many years without knowing that you have it. Unfortunately, without detection, it can result in excruciating damage to your heart, blood vessels, kidneys and other parts of the body.
The damage that high blood pressure induces often leads to coronary heart disease , kidney failure or stroke . Medical experts sugge...
