I have IIH, migraines and carotidynia. My carotidynia is extremely bad at the moment. Why do I have all of these conditions? What's the common theme?

In brief: Theme=good question!

All artery behavior/control issues; common theme.
BP determined by heart output vs. total peripheral resistance (determined by split-second degree of arteriole contraction). Migraine due to relaxation of larger arteries within cerebral meningeal membranes. Carotidynia pain within the carotid artery. Medicine=low tech labeling, symptoms & Tx by many who promote they know; http://goo.gl/Blh6rW.

As embodied Soul↔Mind↔Brain↔Body creatures sending >1,000,000 orders/sec brain→body with similar feedback, all issues=a constant integration of mind↔body interaction responses. Yet the vast majority of control is not conscious, but below conscious awareness.
