Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you have normal pressure hydrocephalus and severe strangling pulsing at the base of your skull.
do you have excessive anxiety or stress or neck tension symptoms? this can cause stranglling pulsing at the base of your skull.
your medications would not be causing these symptoms for you.
your fibromyalgia could also be causing these symptoms as well.
if you have excessive stress or anxiety, you may benefit from medications to help decrease anxiety such as diazepam or clonazepam or hydroxyzine or propranolol or other medications.
