New Reference Page for Headaches Related to EDS

Announcing a new Reference Page with all the articles I researched over the years to find the cause of my own headaches:

Headaches Related to EDS

I discovered that EDS can lead to 3 kinds of headaches:

  1. Intracranial Hypotension from cerebrospinal fluid leaks,
  2. Intracranial Hypertension from interference with the circulation of cerebrospinal fluid, and
  3. Cervicogenic Headaches from pinched joints in the neck

The best part is that I found simple isometric exercises to strengthen my neck and prevent both types of headaches, either by maintaining the strength of these muscles with regular neck exercises or by doing these exercises at the first sign of pain.

Using my neck muscles in these exercises seems to realign the vertebrae of my cervical spine (I can hear it “crack” sometimes and that usually eases the muscle spasm), I feel like it removes any “kinks” or blockages interfering with the Craniospinal Hydrodynamics of the fluid around my brain.
