Issues with throbbing in neck: VNS or a thyroid problem

Posted by jaderm @jaderm, Jan 12 9:55am

Hello, I’ve had my VNS for 6 years. It has worked great for me along with my combo of meds. I have the older model and my epileptolgist still says my battery is good. I have never had to swipe my magnet but here recently I’ve been having a intense throbbing in the middle of my lower neck but dnt know if it’s due to my thyroid problem.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Epilepsy & Seizures group.

@jaderm, I wonder if @jakedduck1 @carnation @lsittll @santosha may have some insights for you.

Jade, did you talk to your doctor about this? Have you had thyroid issues in the past?

Hi @colleenyoung and @jaderm, Good Evening to both of you!
Unfortunately, I have little to add as my knowledge of VNS is quite limited.
@jaderm, I would also advise you to talk to your epileptologist about that, if you had not already done that. Who has been taking care of your thyroid problem? Endocrinologist?
