80 Possible Causes for Increased Jugular Venous Pressure, Swelling, Vertigo

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Right heart failure is characterized by low output syndrome with increased jugular venous pressure, increased liver size and hypotension.[doi.org] This "right-sided" heart failure causes swelling (edema), usually in the feet and legs, and sometimes, in the abdomen.[healthcommunities.com] […] defects 5,364 521 9.7 90 Inflammation, infection of eye 15,984 1,201 7.5 92 Otitis media and related conditions 9,855 738 7.5 93 Conditions associated with dizziness or vertigo[hcup-us.ahrq.gov]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Crackles in your lungs, called rales Increased heart rate (tachycardia) Rapid breathing (tachypnea) Other things that may be seen during the exam include: Leg or abdominal swelling[medlineplus.gov] The term edema is from the Greek οἴδημα (oídēma, "swelling"), from οἰδέω (oidéō, "I swell").[en.wikipedia.org] People who have congestive heart failure often will note swelling of the feet and ankles as well as swelling in the abdomen that is not usually associated with pulmonary edema[livestrong.com]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Symptoms of cardiomyopathies may include fatigue, swelling of the lower extremities and shortness of breath.[en.wikipedia.org] The obstructive type is also notable for signs of reduced blood flow ( dyspnea , vertigo , syncope ).[amboss.com] These signs and symptoms include: Shortness of breath or trouble breathing, especially with physical exertion Fatigue (tiredness) Swelling in the ankles, feet, legs, abdomen[web.archive.org]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    Physical examination is notable for elevated jugular venous pressure, often with Kussmaul's sign (paradoxical increase in jugular venous pressure with inspiration).[clinicaladvisor.com] Symptoms of Restrictive Cardiomyopathy Shortness of breath Tissue swelling (edema) Abnormal heart rhythms Palpitations Heat failure Chest pain and fainting - These are less[holisticonline.com] The mother showed bilateral pes cavus and complained of episodes of vertigo at the age of 36 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Superior Vena Cava Syndrome

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    The purpose of increasing MABP is to observe the response of CBF, ICP, and PbtO 2 to an increase in pressure.[doi.org] The results demonstrate the importance of decompressive craniectomy in the treatment of traumatic brain swelling. Conclusions.[dx.doi.org] Symptoms of a central source may include nausea with nonpositional vertigo and imbalance.[doi.org]

  • Intracranial Hypertension

    Increase in venous pressure can be due to venous sinus thrombosis, heart failure, or obstruction of superior mediastinal or jugular veins.[en.wikipedia.org] The three OCT measures reflecting the reduction of optic disc swelling were significant in both treatment groups but greater in the acetazolamide group (P 0.01).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] By Allison, United States, February 17, 2015 Three years ago I began to experience severe daily headaches, nausea and vertigo.[rarediseaseday.org]
