Hi Diana, I have been re-visiting some of your videos, didn’t you say in one of them that intra-cranial pressure raises at night (or was that just when you lay down)? If it is raised, then your body will have a difficult job getting the head perfused with sufficient blood. So what choices does your body have, does it raise your blood pressure ? – probably not as effective under the circumstances, so it will have to raise your heart rate ? What do you think ?
Also, I might understand why I feel better sleeping sitting up. I have been watching the ‘SENATE MEETING ON BILL S-204 CCSVI MS Ottowa Canada’ on YouTube which took place recently. Dr Zamboni and a Dr Zivadinov are participants. Dr (Prof ?) Zivadinov talks about the internal jugular veins being ‘open’ when you lay down, whereas they are ‘closed’ when you are upright. I wonder, when they are ‘open’ are they engorged ? Could this be an additional cause of autonomic symptoms gone haywire, at night, as it compresses the vagus nerve ?
I have terrible symptoms when I lay down and I know several others on this forum do too.
