My dad has been suffering for over a month with loud pounding in his head and what he describes as throbbing throughout his body. He said that he also will be standing still and feel as if his body is jolting. Like he's experiencing an earthquake. Does any of this make sense? I tried searching the net for similar symptoms but didn't find much. My dad said it seems to be worse today after he flew on a plane to see me. Could it be an ear-related problem?? I would so appreciate any help with this as it's got me very concerned. Thanks!

For about 8 years be4 I was diagnosed with high blood pressure I knew I had it and every time I was checked at the dr's it would be fine. I got migraines atleast 2 times a month for 3 days at a time. Anyway if it is not high when they check it they say its not there. But the thing about it is, it goes up and down, and if youre like me and had low blood pressure first, then a normal reading for most pple is already hi for you. I found pounding in the head to be associated with my hi blood pressure, cooling off my head with cooler water helps a great deal. And the back of my neck.
I stand on the floor by the shower and bend over let the water from the shower just flow on my head as cold as I can stand, as long as I can stand it. It helps me a lot, especially when you live in humid climate.

These post are old, but just in case anyone new comes through... I think it's Intracranial Hypertension, aka, Pseudo tumor Cerebri.
