There is a Facebook group called POTS and lots of people there discussing all these types of things I'd highly suggest anyone join. But yes migraines even can be related to pots also. But I also get the very crazy head pressure when bending down or over. I never had that before pots.. It is just like you say where it feels like all the blood rushes and will burst. Yes I could have in the past hung upside down but I understand what you mean where now no way due to the pressure. I avoid bending directly over at all costs with head below heart. I try not to bend much period but especially that kind where head is way down. Lots of pots people have migraine and things related to head. Someone else mentioned intracranial head pressure and I think that makes sense. I've also seen many pots people
Have a CSF leak that caused pots also spine related and can cause issues too. This actually makes me want to get that checked out. I've only really had a tilt table test but probably should have these things checked. Csf leaks can happen from car accidents and other incidents.
Did you ever find some answers?! I am dealing with the same exact thing
I have syringomyelia and I get this same feeling every single time I bend over. I've been told over and over by my doctor's that they don't know what it is but my syrinx wouldn't be causing it. I think that's BS cause a physical therapist I know says it's NOT normal to feel that way when bending over. I'm still looking for answers.
I don't think it is normal. Because the days when I do feel normal (happens once or twice per year) it does not feel like this. And most healthy people can hang upside down without problems (at least the young), even though I can't figure out why anyone would have to;). I couldn't possibly do that more than a few seconds. Same with hand standing.
My blood pressure is normal but I have POTS so my body can not regulate it properly. When I stand up the blood rushes to my feet, so it is only logical that if I hang upside down the blood would rush to my head.
Still, not sure if it actually is the POTS or if it is the migraine..
Thank you for your answer though.
I think it's probably normal, happens to me too and doc tells me I'm normal. What's your blood pressure?
