According to Canary club, headaches in A.F. are caused by blood pooling in the abdomen and not getting to the head. Your scalp massages are increasing the circulation there.
If you do not have high blood pressure, Veg, try a variant of the yoga posture The Reverse posture.
A photo and description of it is included on this page (you will have to scroll down): http://www.yogapositions.net/yogapositions12.php
Do not stay in it for more than a minute at a time, though you can do it several times a day. In the future, you will be able to increase your time in this posture.
If this is, indeed, an issue of blood circulating to the head, you will feel some improvement very quickly, if you are able to relax in this position and keep your mind clear of any thoughts. Just breathe. Direct the blood to the head.
If you want, you can put a roll or pillow under your ankles and if your arms want to change at some point, you can put them straight out in front of you for a bit.
One thing good about this posture is that you can do it for as long as you want.

This is one of those things that you have to trust your instincts on. Add salt when water feels like it makes you more thirsty. Don't, when it feels good by itself. If you add too much your taste buds will say "gross!". Look for that juuuust right place. I pretty much add salt to my water all day, although sometimes I don't want it.
Again, if you are getting up to pee at night, I think
it is important to add salt to the water that you drink before bed.
And yes, you can drink too much water when you have AF. Tune up those listening ears. You can crash your sugars and salt by drinking too much.
Oh, how fun will be the day when just drinking water by itself is satisfying.... Sigh.
At least, of all the AF sypmtoms, this seems the easiest to rectify, at least in my opinion it is..., once you get the hang of it, of course.
I have had very bad headaches for the past 2 years since the onset of my adrenal fatigue. It has only been a few months since I found out I had adrenal fatigue.
There are different types of headaches, with different causes and that are addressed differently. The first thing you need to do is to determine the type of headache so better suggestions can be made as to how to address them. Migraine, sinus, cluster, tension.......
NOTHING works for my heart palpitations/anxiety!!!
Ok so this whole BS ordeal started since the beginning of this year and nothing is working for me! I keep having heart palpitations almost nonstop, if I sit still and try to relax I can feel my head and upper body vibrating b/c of the heart pounding/thumping feeling (I have normal range pulse). it's so annoying and disruptive it's pissing me off
there were a few days during the holidays when I ate caffeine foods (dark chocolate, coffee beans etc). I've never been much of a caffeine consumer, only some chocolate here and there, otherwise I never drink coffee or take stimulants
I've never had adverse reactions to caffeine before except maybe slightly noticeable heartbeat and feelings of bliss/contentment.
then eventually last year there were a couple days where I probably consumed 'too much' caffeine & developed panic attack symptoms for the first time in the evening (I'm a slow caffeine metabolizer). symptoms like pounding heart, tight chest/throat, shakiness/chills. It happened twice last year and after those symptoms went away I was normal again, calming down helped
however on the new year I again consumed too much caffeine again plus a margarita one day (I think I'm sensitive to it as well) and had the worst time ever that evening, panic attack symptoms, awake all night, afraid to fall asleep, afraid of dying/having a heart attack, just in fear and terror. my blood pressure fluctuated a lot, however my pulse was in normal range. this lasted over 24 hours. eventually this subsided but ever since that horrible day/night I never fully recovered from this anymore! drinking lots of water didn't work. one time I woke up with anxiety attack symptoms again for no reason, and had an elevated pulse too for a moment (115 bpm). now I'm getting these anxiety attack symptoms for "no reason" or out of the blue
I was also frequently angry/frustrated about something during that time so it must've been stress + caffeine combined
On and off I'm getting symptoms of tightness in chest or collarbone region, but mostly heart palpitations (pounding feeling)....same anxiety attack symptoms but for no reason! they seem to happen more in the evening/night. I know anxious thoughts cause those symptoms mostly but still also for no good reason
Now I hate going to bed. I go to bed late b/c I'm guaranteed the same f***ing palpitations nonstop. they prevent me from sleeping well...if I'm finally dosing off I'm suddenly jolted awake from a muscle spasm or whatever
I avoid all caffeine, alcohol, reduced Sugar a lot, gluten free, mostly grain free, take Sea Salt too for electrolytes. I was suggested & given GABA and chamomile tea from an ND after a random panic attack one morning...but they don't stop the tightness/palpitations even when I'm drowsy
I tried: Epsom Salt footbath, magnesium supplements, Iodine food (seaweed), sublingual B12, accupressure massage on the wrists, heart mudra, just trying to get my vitamins etc etc but NOTHING is stopping my palpitations.
I think they're from underlying stress/anxiety...but I've always been anxious/Type A and never in my life had these symptoms until this year ever since that one horrible 24+ hour panic episode.
What's worse is that whenever I notice the palpitations are gone...just noticing this, or even thinking about having them makes them start again!! I can't stop this cycle
why is nothing working for me?! my heart keeps thumping or 'pounding' WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?
PLEASE can someone help! did I develop a panic/anxiety disorder that's causing palpitations for the first time ever? Can caffeine cause this disorder even if from just a single use (I've never been a coffee drinker)?
WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME? what can I f*cking do to stop the damn palpitations for good even when I think about them (this always triggers them again) even relaxation exercises don't help much, either they gradually go away without my awareness until I think of them again
someone please help :``( is there a cure for me?!!
I'm curious can a caffeine induced panic episode cause 'damage' with heart function? during my all night panic my highest ever BP I measured was 170/110, but also fluctuated down to 100 lowest systolic & 53 diastolic while trying to calm down..my BP was pretty erratic. I was told by ND this is due to electrolyte/brain chemical imbalance or something. however my pulse was normal range mostly 60-80 bpm. my typical 'normal' BP has always been around 100/60 range

I've been tested before both by conventional doctor tests and & by two naturopaths and they all found my liver is normal. I don't feel there's a problem there, unlike my mother who has multiple chemical sensitivities and fat digestion issues.
I do know I'm a slow caffeine metabolizer, found out through a genetic test my sister took, we're twins
we all 3 got tested before by a naturopath with a program called Accugraph, (vaguely) checks the general state of your organs through accupuncture points and I feel it is a dead accurate test, it found my problem organs which I knew about all along, stomach & small intestine...and apparently low kidney function which I didn't know about.
But this had nothing to do with causing my anxiety symptoms/palpitations. It started with the caffeine consumption over the holidays and probably left me with some kind of chronic anxiety disorder

"I've been tested before both by conventional doctor tests and & by two naturopaths and they all found my liver is normal."
"...Accugraph, (vaguely) checks the general state of your organs through accupuncture points ... it found my problem organs which I knew about all along, stomach & small intestine...and apparently low kidney function which I didn't know about."
I'm not critical of anything above but I suspect you are reading too much into the results.
I would not expect your liver results--enzymes-- on typical blood tests to be problematic. I'm not refering to that type of liver problem.
I'm also not referring to the "electrical" problem that is most likely being tested in acupuncture. Dr J Tennant has a facinating video on that subject, including his own recovery from a terminal illness. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XicmDDmVBs
I suspect it is somewhat like a person who complains that their diswasher is not cleaning dishes well. They get the electrician in and he says the dishwasher is fine--from an electrical standpoint.
A repairman from the manufacturer comes in and says the machine is not breaking down mechanically--like the liver enzymes test.
However the problem with the inadequately washed dishes is that you are not adding dish washing detergent! That is a chemistry problem, not problem with the electrical system or mechanical functions of the diswasher.
I'm suggesting that you could be deficient in normal, helpful chemicals that your liver needs to detoxify natural and other chemicals that tend to amp us up. This includes sulfate, methyl donors, etc.
I'm not pretending to know that this is your problem. I'm just sharing leads with you that I've heard from others, from my own experience and from the theoretical chemistry.
I'm surprised that the naturopath did not discuss sulfation, methylation and other Phase II liver processes with you.
Acetylation might be the Phase II process involved in breakdown of caffeine. I too have that problem and it runs in the family.

These symptoms are also the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Have your furnace checked and consider that you may have an exhaust leak in your car.
You can't smell it or see carbon monoxide. Constant exposure to even small amounts does long term damage.
Try to correlate when the symptoms occured and what you did and what you were around in the 24 hours before the symptoms. The only treatments I know of is oxygen and hyperbaric treatments.
A DX can test for the CO in your blood but it is painful. They take a blood sample by sticking a syringe deep into your wrist to sample the arterial blood. Hurts like a bitch but it would be your only confirmation.
It was the only time in my life I ever experienced panic attacks.
Sorry to say that most DX don't think of it. It would have killed me if I hadn't figured it out myself.

Hmmm Don't you think that is the obvious action???
I don't think it is necessary to spell out each step. People don't like being talked down to. It's a delicate balance to determine how much "help" to give.
I have no clue why you are so combative. If you are not willing to give positive support than SHUT THE HELL UP!! Your negative BS serves no one except your desire to make yourself feel superior.
You had no clue...so you are mad. Narcissistic
behavior disorder. Can't empathize and see others point of view. You feel worth less so you attack everyone else to lift yourself up.
If you wanted to help you could have said:
"Call someone to check your furnace and take your car to service and ask them to check for exhaust leak."
No need to be hostile.
Now, typical of a Narcissist you will go into revenge mode. Badger me every time you can. Maybe if you channeled all that energy into trying to understand the view point of others you wouldn't need to beat everyone else up to feel better. But then, you'd have to admit to yourself that your actions are not always sound.
I hate to think about the abuse and betrayal that got you to this point. You are obviously smarter and better than your behavior displays.

WTF seriously? Do you have to scare me like this?
No one else in my family has these symptoms and we all live together. If you read my post, I said these symptoms started after/during the period I consumed caffeine and had those panic attacks
I get these symptoms even when I'm outside somewhere so it can't be what you said
Idk why these symptoms are recurring everyday now ever since those particular anxiety attack incidences, even long after avoiding all stimulants and the fact that I've never been a regular caffeine user. so it's not like I'm in withdrawal. I can't figure out why this is
