I am searching for the medical term or explanation to a condition that I got ever since the following happened:
I was renting for a couple of years a flat (in a relatively new development/house) from a landlord, who refused to fix anything in it, including the heating, which was not working at all (from the very beginning) all winter long.
(I live in Europe by the way)
I was forced to sleep in a room with cold air. And then would get up with horrible headaches and migraines, because of that.
The thing it, it is now already a couple of years after I no longer live in that place, but the health damage still remains!
I am now sensitive to any somewhat cold room temperature (I believe already anything below 25 degrees Celsius), and still get up with forehead pain if having slept in anything but a warm room.
It is always the forehead that aches afterwards.
Please could you advise me what this is, if there is any medical term for this (it’s not hypothermia is it?), and if there is anything I could do in order to reverse the permanent damage which was caused.
(I never before, prior to living in the said flat under the described conditions, suffered from this phenomenon)
It is very impairing and debilitating to me and I cannot have a normal life (without needing to worry about if a room is warm enough, and without suffering forehead pain) anymore due to this.
Thank you very much in advance for your help and advice.
Your problem is migraines caused by cold. Blood-flow changes to the brain caused by cold temperature may cause, in some individuals, blood vessels to dilate and this affects how the body responds. It is possible to relieve sinus pain and pressure using a device that emits micro-current waveforms. Microcurrent and microlight works to relieve blockage and pain in a similar way as acupuncture by clearing stagnation and poor circulation of qi (vital energy) and blood. First, consult with your personal physician, doctor, MD to rule out any other cause. If no cause is identified for your problem, then consult with… Read more »
