Compress IJV almost without Eagle syndrome(basic large transverse process С1 ) in triangle atlas C1 and digastric muscle and Musculus stylohyoideus, TOS and hyoideum bone identify on your own despite doctors’ diagnoses

I was 14-15 years old, they gave me age-related and psychological diagnoses. As a result, after almost 20 years, I began to study aspects of medicine, the structure of the vascular system, pictures, and figured it out on my own.And I even independently found compression of the IJV in another patient. But he has a straight bone, eagle syndrome. I have segmental calcification and to see it on CT I need to change the spectral range. but for me this is not the main reason. This year I already had my own opinion about the presence of compression of the IJV, our doctors believe that there can be no problems with the veins and do not even examine it. Yes, and ultrasound specialists do not know how to make mistakes in the angle, false compression of the vertebral arteries in TOS syndrome, Kimmerle. And they don’t know the basics of hydrodynamics, but I noticed that ultrasound doctors have a problem with this abroad too)))) In total, this year I visited 7 surgeons, vascular and neuro. As a result, the first two did not see IJV compression on CT scans. The third one was tired (they are all tired and grumpy, it’s hard to talk to them))))) and the conversation did not reach the compression of the IJV, but only supposedly hypoplasia of the transverse sinus and sigmoid sinus, they say it’s congenital in you, get out of here, but in the end this hypoplasia is due to blood flow The fourth vascular surgeon from the Filatov hospital saw compression on bad images, but said that there was no such practice in Russia, go to the institutes. Further to Burdenko neurosurgeon,questioned the compression of the IJV and sent him for an ultrasound and it was his mistake. There was no such practice in Burdenko either. Then, at the Sklifosovsky hospital, a neurosurgeon confirmed compression of the IJV and prescribed surgery. They also did not have such practice. But two months have already passed and there is still no decision from the council of doctors and I have not yet had the operation. I have no money, I can’t work, I start to choke, hyperventilate if I work mentally and motionless at the computer. I can’t argue, he’s getting acquainted, he’s so half asleep. I don’t know what to do next. 20 years and now I’ve found the reason and it’s still useless.
I still understood a lot. For example, during an operation on TOS, the external jugular veins are dissected, and the scalene muscles are dissected and the load increases on the deep muscles of the neck and thereby increases in volume, hypertrophy and compresses the vessels, namely the vertebral plexus of veins. And a person with venous insufficiency will get worse after TOS surgery. TOS and transverse processes of the atlas are comorbidities. Both due to heaviness,from lifting weights. I think that kimmerle calcification is also caused by from lifting weights. For example, in Thailand or Malaysia, kimmerle is found in almost 50-60% of the population versus 30% in other countries. And what is there - hard work from an early age. If you look at the edge of the transverse process of the atlas, the levator scapulae is pulled down at an early age when bones grow. And yes, there is also such a thing as subluxation of the atlas, but this is easy to detect on CT and xRAy. And the pain will be on that hemisphere of the head. In this case, gerotraction, a hard collar or surgery are practically impossible to correct. Only immediately after the accident.There is also a displacement of the atlas relative to the skull by 2 mm and will compress the IJV. But this is the tip of the iceberg, not the main problem, and you will get some relief if you move it a little. The main thing is the large transverse processes of the atlas. This can be seen on CT scan.
***strong text It’s hard to concentrate while driving, so I don’t drive the car. You get lost in the crowd, at night, when it’s noisy. Something like a phobia, but the brain simply does not have time to process information due to lack of oxygen, less blood flow. With venous insufficiency and compression of two IJVs, volumetric blood flow decreases by 20-40% of the total volume, and also intracranial pressure. Symptoms:
Main: Tinnitus, nasal congestion, eye floaters. During the physical activity and lifting weight the tinnitus gets worse, the limbs and lips feel numb. During prolonged sitting (like working at the
desk) - shortness of breath. constant whistling/ringing in the ears, which increases with the tone of
the neck muscles
(immobility for more than 40 minutes, heaviness), with it, nasal congestion and a feeling
of intracranial pressure increases, can lay ears during physical exertion, numb hands, lips -
after exertion, suffocate often, nasal congestion, midges in the eyes, a condition like after
a blow to the head,fatigue, absent-mindedness, a little slowness, limited
head rotation, you wake up in the morning as if you were being strangled, there is a grid in your
eyes, like with a hangover(alcohol is extremely difficult to tolerate from 1 liter of beer,
I rarely drink alcohol), I drink a lot of water. In general, in order to feel more or less, I need to
move,even in pairs or at work, I tried to stretch my neck and shoulders every hour, because
intracranial pressure, nasal congestion, whistling and a feeling of lack of breath gradually increased,
I began to breathe hard, everyone pays attention to it. Or I wear
a bag of 15-20 kg, and then I will feel bad, nasal congestion will increase, whistling.
After heavy ones, I will generally suffocate there and sometimes it is easy
dizziness, the whistling-ringing always increases, and in parallel with this intracranial
pressure and stuffs the nose. Also, when strong neck muscle tone and hyperventilation
lie on my stomach, face down - it helps.
With little physical activity :During push-ups, pull-ups, the feeling
of intracranial pressure, nasal congestion, whistling (ringing) increases, blurring, numbness behind
the ears, lips, hands, lack of air, hyperventilation and then fear may occur.When pulling
up , there is a darkening in the eyes, a pre-fainting state in waves to the beat of the heartbeat with
increased whistling (ringing), midges, nasal congestion, after 1-2 minutes numbness of the lips and
spots- turbidity in the center appear almost always, if the numbness is stronger then
the spots are green and suffocation is stronger. Therefore, I don’t do a lot of 2-3 sets of 10 push-ups
2-3 sets of 4-5 pull-ups, if I feel numb and feel unwell, then I do
less. And if I enter this state, then I get out of it by warming up my shoulders, neck and
walking. While running, the nose lays yes, but I feel good, but after running after
5-7 minutes, it’s also bad. I run a little 1000-1400 meters
Here are some more important symptoms: At night you fall asleep on your back, you wake up from
feeling unwell, lack of air, ripples in your eyes, there is a slight dizziness that
passes 20 seconds after movement, feeling unwell - 2 minutes later. And so
you spin around every 30-120 minutes, you can’t find a comfortable position for your head.In the
, there is a broken mesh in the eyes. There is tension on the back of the neck and the nose begins
to lay, the whistle increases, as if the intracranial pressure rises. Lying on
your back, the neck muscles are reflexively tense to facilitate oral breathing (presses on
the larynx).
And as I do not have to work I can not, physical labor becomes bad choke. Mental work sitting at
the computer, podrobnee after 2-3 hours pray pray computer, everyone pay attention . On the way to
an appointment, if it lasts an hour or more, intracranial pressure gradually increases
and I start to breathe hard, and at the end they notice everything, I go out to warm up for a few
minutes and it calms down a little and I come back.
Background. The beginning of symptoms . In the period from 14 to 17-19 years: From the
age of 14, a weak
whistle that sometimes intensified, the head ached terribly for a couple of months, the left
hemisphere was just where the venous sinus was (there was a pulsation where the fontanel was),

accompanied by nausea and, accordingly, a feeling of bursting-pressure in the head —
intracranial pressure, there was dizziness when changing positions, jumping pulse and
pressure, there was tachycardia and bragicardia I don’t remember 45-49 beats /min. In addition,
there were
abundant nasal hemorrhages with normal blowing of the nose, with a frequency of 1-2 times a day
a week ,-lasted up to 18-19 years .Constantly cold hands , irritability, even then
there were some problems with nasal breathing.Pain in the spine from heavy loads, ringing
(whistling) and fatigue appeared in the period from 13 to 14 years, stiffness when turning the head,
whistling (ringing) in the ears and fatigue. I felt pain in the thoracic spine
stiffness and heaviness when inhaling. At the age of 15, I was hanging upside down on a pipe,
something cracked in
my neck and, as it were, liquid flowed into my throat, darkened in my eyes and dizzy (I managed to
get off) and fell to the ground. After this situation, for about two months I had a weak
pulse reaching 50 beats (during the day), tachycardia and, accordingly, after that, strong
fear, dizziness and a feeling of a coma in my throat. After 17-19 years, nosebleeds
gradually stopped, dizziness became less frequent, tachycardia disappeared. Injuries: In
childhood, 6-8 years old, I fell from an attic and a tree: from a height of 2.5 m. on my side, at the
age of 13 they jumped from
a second-floor window -then I pulled my neck (whiplash injury) I was sick for two weeks. From 13
to 16 years old
heavy physical labor (40kg bags dragged), incorrect “swing” of muscles and breathing (max up to
100 push-ups , 50 on the uneven bars, 30 pull-ups, 400 times a 14 kg rotor on the biceps and all
this with sharp movements without breath control) , pain in the spine. At the age of 17, I rolled an
kg barbell over my chest and stomach, felt bad for about two weeks.A couple of years
ago, a radiologist after fluorography said that two ribs were broken, possibly
the consequences after the barbell.
Treatment: Doctors diagnosed intracranial pressure and VSD. In the period from 14 to 17 years
treatment was prescribed-droppers, magnesium B6, cinnarizine, piracetam, bilobil, massage,
electrophoresis and chiropractic.They did an MRI of the brain , no abnormalities were
found .Chiropractic - the cervical vertebrae were set twice, after these
procedures I felt very bad — weak pulse and fear of sweating , etc. The duration
of treatment is 3-4 weeks, but the effect of drug treatment is almost zero
(massage and electrophoresis brought insignificant relief). The headache went
away on its own after a couple of months . Since the age of 17, I have been doing significantly less
physical exercises (sometimes push-ups, pull-ups) at 21 during exercise
, I felt numbness in my hands for the first time, and from the age of 23-24 I led a sedentary lifestyle.
But at
this age up to 22 years, physical exertion , running-were well tolerated and the nose
was practically breathing, there was ringing, fatigue, headaches . In the period from the age of 23,
he began to feel
significant nasal congestion, and tinnitus and fatigue began to progress.
At the age of 24, he performed an operation on the nose – the bridge of the nose was leveled, laser
vasatomy of the nasal
shells and the lower passages were expanded (the bone was broken). The operation had no effect .
Around 2012, I somehow adapted to sleeping for a month on my stomach face down for 2-3 hours
and the neck muscles were relaxed, after that I felt cheerful for a week,
nasal congestion and whistling in the ears disappeared (then I put a small pillow under
the chest, one hand under the forehead, and the fingers of the second hand spread out under the
mouth for
breathing is not very convenient of course). I stopped sleeping on my stomach and doing exercises

came back in a week .
At the age of 26, I checked the heart at the FSBI “NMIC of Cardiology”-ultrasound,cardio,trimble
test result the heart is healthy. By the age of 28, the nose was practically not breathing.
Since the age of 25 , they have progressed :whistling, nasal congestion, numbness of the hands and
I doubted the compression of the IJV, there were bad pictures, but then I figured it out and took measurements with a ruler in the CT program, and yes, there is compression of two IJVs. According to the ultrasound, the left IJV is 240 and the right is 350 ml/min, but this is in the 2nd segment, in the 3rd segment less and, again, I doubt that the velocity measurements are correct, but still, MRI venography without contrast also shows a narrowing of the IJV at the site of the transverse process of the atlas. The IJV is compressed in the triangle - the posterior muscle of the digastric muscle, the transverse process of the atlas and the stylohyoid muscle (which is also calcified in parts and to see it in the CT program you need to change the spectral range), on the left IJV is compressed between the hyoid bone - the common carotid artery and the sternocleidomastoid muscle (all muscles are hypertrophied, including the scalene muscles).

The problem is that no one looks at the veins and no one has performed operations on the transverse process of the atlas, on the needle processes. But I think that removing only one stylohyoid muscle will not help or only partially. The main problem is the large transverse processes of the atlas, which are retracted at an early age, when there were soft bones, due to heavy lifting (levator scapulae).

The scalene muscle is there, the vertebral arteries are close to the anterior scalene muscle, the thoracic outlet is small - the first rib is small, but I think they have a greater effect on the chest.

All this is most likely due to the severity of adolescence during the period of bone mass growth.

Another person (Suprun Yaroslav) has similar symptoms, but not constant and not as strong. Although he has a bone spike, the compression of the internal jugular veins is less than mine. Five images are attached. My photos and symptoms in PDF.

There are many problems with color Doppler ultrasound. False, false conclusions (diagnosis) about compression of the vertebral arteries during TOS, Kimmerle. The ultrasound specialist does not see compression above the sensor in the Atlas area (C1) `

It is not visible on ultrasound images, and specialists did not detect compression, but in fact there is compression of the internal jugular veins (IJV). I considered the volume on the right to be 300-320 ml/min, on the left 210-220 ml/min, but there are studies and the norm for the internal jugular veins is from 540 to 920 ml/min, i.e. vary greatly and that the flow rate for a particular person is unknown, and a deficiency of 100-200 ml/min will create pressure in the head. Here is my method how to indirectly estimate the IJV compression in the c1 atlas area (because the sensor will not see anything in this area) /IJV/(VA + CCA) x 100% = %

(assuming that

Some patients with scalene SOS experience symptoms of intracranial

hypertension, which I became acquainted with in one of the foreign articles and my detailed

thoughts) Also theoretically with compression of the subclavian artery

(possibly due to a drop in blood pressure, my reading is usually 105/67 on

hand, but essentially another rash on the hands), excess arterial blood

distributed and enters the brain, further worsens venous

insufficiency and increases intracranial hypertension/intracranial

pressure, after physical the load is stronger because the compression of the subclavian artery is stronger, and the muscles

increase in volume and can put pressure on the veins. Moreover, since scalenus

(thoracic outlet syndrome) is caused primarily by severity and enlargement

in the transverse processes of C1, most likely due to the load on the muscle connecting the scapula

and Atlant C1 at an early age, in the bone growth phase, these diseases

will often accompany each other. Also the reason for frequent complaints about

ineffectiveness of the operation and worsening symptoms after removal of the 1st rib

or scalene muscles or decussation, crossing of veins may be observed during

procedure. Conversely, people who developed scalenus at a later age, with

formed bones that do not have problems with the LES in the Atlant C1 zone and with

less intense symptoms may well have a positive effect

from the operation. Taking into account the possibility of compression of the vertebral arteries of the scalene

muscles, then this is possible, since my VA is close to the scalene muscle and the head of the 1st rib.

But I still doubt it, although the symptoms are whistling/ringing, but maybe

almost due to any disruption of the blood supply to the brain, including venous

I’m so sorry that the doctors in your country are not listening & aren’t doing the testing or interpreting the scans correctly…
I couldn’t open some of your images, and I’m not as knowledgeable as some on here with looking at venous compression etc, but one of the images I did see of your right side, the styloid looks small and it does seem to be the C1 process causing the compression, so not necessarily Eagles Syndrome…unfortunately we’re seeing more & more members here with complicated medical histories that one surgery won’t fix, it’s really hard…
There is some useful info about treatments in the Newbies Guide Section where you might find some tips to help you, but a couple of things I would suggest is trying sleeping propped up, as this does usually help with intracranial hypertension, and quite a few members have tried blood thinners like plavix which can help where there’s IJV compression.
At the moment your links to images won’t show-probably because this is your first post, you might have to repost them I’m afraid…

i have good blood rheology , i dont have arteriosclerosis drugs do not help when vessel compressed outside / And no when i sleep in 2012 on my stomach ,face down and my muscle of the neck relax , and thi make the opportunity to expand the vertebral plexus of veins and slightly increase the outflow of venous blood.

Decompression of the Internal Jugular Vein for Eagle’s Syndrome video surgery

I recently found a video on youtube Dr Michael Lawton (Barrow institut) that explains and shows the surgery operation well. And yes, removing the eagle is not enough in some cases, but the main thing is the large transverse processes of the atlas C1. You may not have Eagle Syndrome , but have IJV compression on C1, digastric muscle ,artery and accessory nerv CN 11.

@anon67578920 what a battle this has been for you. I have experienced some similar symptoms and I am glad that you have not given up. Your body is talking to you and you know things are not right. I hope you can find some relief soon.
I have recently been reading a book on Idiopathic Intercrainial hypertension by Kyle Farrgen
Maybe another good resource for you

@TheDude has posted another good link regarding venous outflow disturbance

I do hope you can connect with a doctor that’s willing to work with you to figure out the best solution for your symptoms.
Stay strong my friend
Wishing you the very best today and a pain free tomorrow

How old are you ? How long ago did you identify the problem? In childhood, at an early age from 12 to 16 years old, did you lift weights? At what age did symptoms begin to progress? Did you wake up earlier every hour? Did you drink a lot of water and urinate frequently (brain hypoxia)? sleeping on your back, what does it feel like?Running helps me a little, but it’s hard to bear. I almost gave up push-ups and pull-ups, they make me feel bad (tension of the neck muscles), but there is a positive cumulative effect, but I still settled on running.strong text Regarding the cost of the operation. In Russia, medicine is conditionally free. It is clear that work must be paid. Surgeons, if I perform operations under a medical policy, then practically verbally I have to agree on payment. Otherwise, the quality is not guaranteed :smile: Insurance companies pay significantly less for surgical operations than the market value. Of course, I paid for MRI, CT, ultrasound and some appointments with neurologists. I have spent about $1000-1500 over the past three years. And from 15 years old for that time about $2500. Wouldn’t it be better to spend this money on surgery?Yes, work should be paid, but when you spend money and there is no result, it’s not good. It would be better if I spent some of the money not on neurologists, but on surgeons; there would be more benefits. What is the price of such an operation in your region? So that you understand, salaries in the capital of Russia, Moscow, are the highest. The salary of a power engineer with a higher education is $700-1000 net per month (taxes have already been deducted), an electrician, a plumber is $350-500. Design engineer $700-1000. chief accountant $1000-2000. In regions, regions, villages Electrical engineer $300-400, electrician plumber - $200-350. And in villages (contry) Electrical engineer $160-200, electrician plumber - $100-160

Not sleeping on your back as such but semi-upright, it certainly helped me & quite a few members have been helped with this, but if you have more C1 compression then maybe it’s different…I can’t sleep on my stomach at all unfortunately, too painful since the whiplash injury I had 25 years ago :grimacing:


Late forties, early fixity’s .
we only identified the intercranial hypertension and venous compression mid 2022, diagnosed with eagles in early 2023.
I did not do any heavy lifting, some small lifting in the garage with friends but nothing that lasted during those teen years. I did do a lot of paddling for surf as a hobby and later 17-20’s years I got started in tai chi and then later 20-30’s I did more traditional Chinese kung fu forms, lion dance, and chi kung.
A lot of stretching and breathing. And started running and mountain biking long distance. running and biking I really miss and can understand how hard it must be for you stop doing something that is so rewarding.
My symptoms started after a motor vehicle accident, I was a driver stopped at a crosswalk and rear ended by a heavy duty truck whose driver was lookin down at a text on his phone and hit me with out applying brakes.

My symptoms started a few days after and became progressively worse as the years followed.
Dismissed by many docs with the “ you look fine” kind of thing.
I had terrible sleep patterns and sometimes couldn’t sleep at all and then very short sleep but consistently restless from the neck and back pain, fatigued constantly when up, and trouble sleeping for any good amount of time.
At the time I found only sleeping on my back helped, side or stomach was too painful.
No pillows under my head at the time, and tried a variety of small soft things under my neck that were helpful but only short duration. I also did a lot of icing on and off
I did find that a hanging chair was comfortable, and I spent a lot of time just hanging, positioning became very challenging to get just right to fall asleep, but the hanging chair allowed me to rest/ sleep when the bed did not.
After my first year of conservative treatment and telling me “it’s all in my head” “ I should be healed already” my doc had finally suggested i should get an MRI of the spine…Multiple disc herniations in the neck and back, ruptured disc in thoracic t7, torn labrum (slap tear) on one side, multiple small displaced tearing in the rotator muscles, frozen shoulder on the left, excessive scare tissue around the s/c joints L>R.

I would say listen to your body :100:. If it hurts or flares up symptoms during exercise… stop and evaluate the exercise and what you’re doing. And also if it flares up in the hours after exercise.

As far as neck tension and muscle pain, I gather that when the muscles and structures that keep us upright during normal posture are some how compromised, the secondary muscles kick in to support and prevent compression of the vital things (like nerve and arteries etc.) . I am told that although they help they cannot take over all day and in turn we become fatigued and over worked. I have experienced this and have had so many days that I could not keep upright for very long.

I think that a good experienced Physical Therapist would/should be the key to understanding were and which muscles are involved. From your images you have shown quite a bit of info and should be proud of yourself for doing so.

About a year after accident, I found an acupuncturist that did a combination of cupping (on the back only) and acupuncture (whole body), with very light massage.
I was told that I was “guarding” and stuck in a (fight or flight mode) and extremely tight in the neck and back area.
After my first session ( about two hours) the release I felt in my shoulder and neck was incredible, finally!
I had many sessions were my body released physically and emotionally, i would drop tears for about thirty minutes on the table, not really knowing why but i just felt so good after the release of so much tension and energy, nothing I have felt before.
I saw her for the next year, twice a week then eventually once a week then stopped.
This had helped my overall muscle tension quite a bit during that time.

I really missed working out, prior to the accident the work outs were such a release and so gratifying.

Eventually with PT, I started to use a walking machine and stationary bike. I started with short duration and eventually about twenty mins each, i was able to get a sweat and it did not flare up symptoms at the time.

I am not sure on the costs for surgery and can report what my insurance pays and my copays are in the future when that becomes known.

I am not really good with images quite yet and can’t see them or scroll threw them too well on my mobile device, so I can’t really comment there.

I think don’t quite know how my body has compensated or adapted to the traumas of life, this is all still pretty new to me and as I read and learn from the members here and there suggestions, stories, victories and continued struggles it gives me a little more understanding how the venous congestion has made life for my brain quite challenging. Not to mention the complexities of the nerves and there potential to add to these some what mystery symptoms.

These are just some of my experiences and I am not sure if they help in the slightest, but I am open to share them.

Plavix did not open my vein or un-compress the vein from the area, but I was told that this intervention was diagnostic in the sense that my symptoms improved drastically. And based on that I should see quite an improvement once the obstruction is cleared/ removed.

The calcified ligament by my understanding also plays a big role in some of these compressions,
Maybe you and your doc, can identify some muscles in the area that may be compressive to the veins/ nerves, Some of the therapies like Botox, (and the right doctor) to access your personal history may provide some more answers and narrow down the list of possibilities.

Sorry so darn long,

Again keep up the good work you are doing and continue to educate yourself. Your doing the right thing for you.
Wishing you the best, be forgiving to your body and listen to what it says.
Take notes as you go, what helps and hurts, and eventually you will find the right treatment for you.
:call_me_hand::pray: and a big hug from way across the ocean.

there are quite a few different people with info/ Videos on chi kung/ qi gong, but here is one that I like
I am selective on what I try movement wise, as bigger movements of the arms aggravate me,
There is another on small circle, big circle breathing that I am looking for and will post later for you
For me, this continues to help my muscle tension and calms me when I get panic attacks,
If you decide to do any of these please listen to your body and go at your own pace


I didn’t fully meet my thought, I meant it. That is, you need to analyze CT images to determine what is the main reason for the large transverse processes of the atlas or large stylohyoid processes (thickness, length, direction/at what angle they grow and how strongly the IJV is compressed), it will be enough only to remove the stylohyoid processes or are the atlas pop processes large and here is the digastric triangle, nerve CN 11 (arteries) and atlas. Perhaps both. Again, there is a temporary option, this is sleeping on the stomach, working with the posture of the thoracic and cervical spine (lordosis) to correct the position of the head and the temporary effect will depend on the degree of compression of the IJV. That is, sleeping on the stomach will relax the neck muscles, thereby reducing the tone and increasing the space for the spinal plexus of veins, as well as the tone of the sternocleidomastoid muscle and the space in the atlas area. Well, in any case, if not noticeable, then there will be a minimal partial positive effect, but temporary. Those. constantly engage in correction and support. Also, injuries and accidents can lead to displacement, dislocation of the atlas or displacement of the stylopod processes, which will subsequently cause deterioration and severe symptoms. I.e. with large processes of the atlas or stylopods, a slight change in space, a displacement of the atlas by 2 mm or posture will cause noticeable changes in the volumetric outflow of blood from the veins.Unlike vascular, for patients with high blood rheology, nootropics, antidepressants are practically drug-containing drugs, brain doping, which slowly destroy brain cells, and they also relax the neck muscles. But don’t forget about the side effects. The priority is surgical intervention, but you need to look at the situation.I sleep on my side, left and right, every hour I wake up and adjust the pillow for comfort and change sides, otherwise I won’t be able to sleep. Sleeping on my back, I feel bad 15-20 minutes later, intracranial pressure rises, nasal congestion intensifies, ringing intensifies, lack of air. I managed to sleep on my stomach once in 2012, for a month, it was very uncomfortable for me to sleep on my stomach, the rotation of my neck was limited, I needed a mask to sleep face down. The best feather pillow, it holds its shape well once you make it. Orthopedic ones are also not bad, but you will most likely have to put things under it, make it a little higher. you can constantly follow these rules: correct head position while sleeping, physical exercise and posture correction, it is possible to wear corsets for the neck and chest, for the neck it is better to wear rigid corsets, running or walking. You can do it without pills and in the end you will feel pretty good but mediocre. Later I will post more CT and MRI pictures and make them visible at the link.

I’ll also add compression of the left brachiocephalic vein between the sternum-clavicles and the aortic arch. but this cannot have a significant effect. There will be no symptoms

We do have members w/ compression of the brachiocephalic vein who are highly symptomatic. Where compression is concerned, there is always compensation by the body’s putting the vascular load on other vessels that aren’t meant to handle the additional blood flow. Often there are also other compressions above or below the dominant one which lead to blood deficit or overload in important areas of the body, & that scenario leads to symptoms.

in this example there is no significant compression, and in the second half of the video the same patient with his arms raised and there is no this compression either. The chest is constantly in motion, and the size of the vessel is normal, you need to look at it in each case.

Sorry if I was not able to understand correctly.
You do seem very well informed
I thank you for the links and more info,
Now to read up on them here next

The degree of compression may also depend on the position of the head/chin; the lower the chin, the greater the compression. For most people with IJV compression, sleeping on the stomach (with an angle between the skull and the atlas, a hole in the sofa) will partially help

Interesting idea. We’ve found that sleeping w/ the head elevated & on one’s side or back is beneficial in helping reduce symptoms. Haven’t heard of sleeping on one’s stomach to lower symptoms. I guess it’s trial & error as to which sleeping position(s) help the most for each person.

something similar to this as an example. This photo is taken from a medical article (Styloidogenic Jugular Venous Compression
