Default Prressure/fullness in head when bending

Does anyone else have this? I was diagnosed about 4-5 years ago - am currently on Mirapex since last June.
When I bend over blood ? seems to rush to my head and my ears pop and my face goes very red and hot. I don't have high blood pressure.
No headache with it - it's just very uncomfortable, and not so enjoyable doing my exercises either (pilates).
Anyone else have this - it's quite new for me

Hi JD2008

Welcome to Forum. Have you been checked out for sinus/ear pressure problems? I am also on Mirapexin and also have problems with ears and pressure problem but no connection ever mentioned as being relevant to PD or meds just an ear problem. Be interesting to see if anyone else has similiar problem

Mary,

Thanks for your reply. No - I haven't been checked out for sinus/ear problems specifically. These symptoms seem to come and go - everything seems to have a connection to PD...you never know when a symptom should be checked out or ignored - you start thinking of yourself as a hypocondriac.

Hi
I fully agree with you but when I was first diagnosed my specialist warned me " from now on everything from a spot on your nose to a brain tumour will be blamed on Parkinsons" so I probably go too far and don't blame PD for anything.Hope you get it sorted I know my ear problems at times cause me more grief than my PD does

HI JD
Hope you are on a good day
never take it for granted that it's PD

you should have everything checked out, as if it's not PD you can have it treated, and then another thing less to cope with.

Hi I do apologies I never saw this post so that is why im just replying now to you

Mirapexin can and may lower your blood pressure on occasion for some parker patients.

The fact that you bend over means the blood that has been trying to pump out through your system now has gravity giving it the speed and volume to fill the area. Hence the popping of ears and the skin being heated by the sudden warmth of all that fresh blood .
The popping is the pressure of the capilaries being filled.

Just take it easy when bending, remember never stand up too quickly either. Becarefull because it is usually a constant guest.

Thanks for your answer - I haven't looked for awhile either.

I have a question about your balance/centre of gravity correction idea of wearing high heels as high and as much as possible. How is that working out? I can't help but try to picture this at work......
I asked my Neuro about Conductive Education and she had never heard of it - Jennifer

Hi JD2008

Ha ha i got to admit it my high heels are working wonders, mind you I do tend to totter first thing in a morning until I have stopped borrowing Douglas Bardot's false legs !!!

If you have a nintendo wii and have the sports board then you can do the yoga and find your centre of balance

I am having an amazing time walking
Conductive Education is on the Peto institute web site
The peto institute was set up in the 1940 by Hungarian Physiotherapist and Neurologist. They knew that muscles have their own memory and if you remind your muscles how they should move by the use of showing them by over exaggerating how they should move, they start to react instinctively instead of waiting for a reaction.

I can get up out of bed now without the excruciating pain I was in before. Conductive education is a way of life, if you use your right hand don't forget to use your left hand. Remember to use it or lose it. !
