I have been wearing the neck brace for a few months now, and I felt 75% better as soon as I put it on. However, I think it is losing it’s effects. I am in such a period of exacerbation with ALL of my symptoms (especailly PTSD), that the neck brace seems to be having very little or no effect at this time. I’m not even sure that it is helping with the pain. My stress levels are through the roof, I’m extremely irritable and I have also experienced rage. I believe it is because of the pressure in my head. Any advice (can’t get to the doc’s b/c of PTSD)?
I noticed after I reduced my intracranial pressure with Diamox, that after about 1-2 months, I just didn’t need the collar much any more. Are you on any medications yet? Diamox? Mast cell treatment? I agree with you that your intracranial pressure may be to blame for your symptoms. There’s a fair amount of research out there that would agree with that. Dr. Franz Schelling has researched a fair amount about this subject, and with what I learned about the effects the resulting inflammatory cytokines (from stress, trauma, viruses, etc) increasing inability to drain venous blood and CSF, I think you are spot on. I’m guessing that it is not an “immunity” to the collar, but an exacerbation of your intracranial pressure and thus your symptoms. Can you get some help getting to the doctor? I don’t know of much to help (beyond meditation, etc) to help until then. But music, meditation, etc CAN be of some help. Big hug…
