What Is This Pressure In My Head!?!

OK...I have hyper POTs but have done progressively well this past year. I notice that I get eye pain/pressure and head pressure (sometimes in the ears too) when I'm in certain positions. It gets pretty intense and sometimes feels as though I will lose my hearing. At times I have it and it doesn't matter my position (I think). Does anyone else get this &/or know what it is?

Also, I've been trying to incorporate some exercise in my life to promote overall health. I thought I'd be out of commission for 4 days afterwards as I've had in the past but so far I haven't had that. However, I will get my old fibromyalgia symptoms (flu like muscle aches)later in the evening after I've walked on the treadmill. Sometimes it is so bad that I'm restless in the bed, writhing in discomfort. I almost broke out my old trusty heating pad but I was too hot. I thought it'd be interesting to share since this has been my reaction to exercise. I wonder if an NSAID would help...?

I get head pressure as well with a change in position. My heart will go crazy, and my head will get so much pressure it will ache. It subsides after a few moments. I am not sure what causes it, though. My BP is pretty low. It rarly ever gets to 100 systolic, and likes to stay on the 50's-60's diastolic. I wonder if it is a BP spike I get from time to time to cause the pressure, but what it feels like to me is a surge of blood flow going to my brain, and my brain reacting to the new blood flow. Like, how your hand throbs when blood rushes through it after it was made numb.

I get really bad eye pain/pressure and some head pressure. When I wake up and have that feeling in my eyes, I know it's going to be a rough day.
