So, I have POTS + migraines + craniocervical instability so my suggestions may not be a perfect match for you as I am not 100% sure which symptoms come from what. However, the symptoms of nausea, dizziness and headaches are very familiar. When symptoms were milder I got a lot of relief from using a craniocradle.


I also found an ergonomic work set up to be crucial. At fist all I could afford was a separate keyboard and mouse so I could stack my laptop on boxes and have it at a better height for my neck. Then I upgraded to two screens on stands and finally a sit/ stand desk. Not sure if you work with computers but if you do some of that may be useful? I also found the right pillow to be crucial. I think pillows are super personal though, I’ve gone through a lot of them.

As symptoms progressed those options were no longer enough, to figure out how much the instability was impacting those symptoms I got a neck brace that was suggested by a YouTuber with EDS and craniocervical instability.

Neck brace:

It helped a lot with the dizziness and base of the skull headaches/ tightness, but it did put pressure on my shoulders. So my symptoms didn’t get worse my doctors cautioned me to only use it for 2 hour periods and to prioritize using it in cars or when I’m bending (dishes, laundry, etc.) I am now going to aquatics PT, working with a manual therapist and getting cervical PRP injections to try to strengthen ligaments as a last step to try before fusions. The manual therapy and PT really help.

My PT office recommended this book to me “Living Life to the Fullest with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome: Guide to Living a Better Quality of Life While Having EDS” by Kevin Muldowney:


Final thought — I found a CBD cream that really takes the edge off and helps with the neck/ back spasms, but holy moly does it smell of menthol. Currently I believe the company only ships to the US — not sure where you are located so this my not be an option, but maybe you can buy CBD cream locally?

The cream is expensive, but they offer a 30 day money back guarantee. It’s more of a bandaid than a solution, but if you’re interested I can send you a link and a coupon. Full disclosure, I signed up for their affiliate program so if you use the $10 coupon I also get a coupon. Only did it to try and help offset costs on a product that really works for me but I don’t want you to feel like I’m pushing product because that’s not my goal. All the other links above are just links and since I’m not sure if I’m allowed to post a coupon/ affiliate link here just DM if interested.

I hope some of that helps! Good luck!

You might have a combination of slight tension in the head/neck but then your mind is literally creating the problem.

Instead of pushing against it (which is gasoline on the fire) you should literally accept that it is there. Actually open to it and say “If this is the best it ever is, that’s ok.” (This is a paraphrase from Joseph Goldstein.)

Once your attitude towards it is amended, you can look into craniosacral therapy to see if it loosens up.

You can also get this or this for some gentle stretching/soothing.

All of that said: it’s the aversion in your mind that is creating this issue.
