Good evening everyone! I am sitting here with this terrible headache/head pressure. It feels like somebody is squeezing my head. Also when i go from sitting down to standing the pressure increase quite noticeably. Any ideas what this could be? Should i go get it checked out? Thank You!

Hi Jana . . . I bumped up your first topic so the others can see all your symptoms. It might help them give you better advice. I answered you there and suggested that you talk to a doctor. If it is a violent headache, have someone take you to the ER. More info in your other topic.

Blessings!

Hi Jana, I have the same problem but I suffer from high blood pressure. I havn't figured out if that is what causes it but it's a really weird feeling. When I stand up it's almost like what I would feel if I was standing on my head and all the blood rushed to my face. Is that the same kind of feeling you get?

I hope some one has some answers for you

hugs

Jana . . . go to the ER if it gets too bad. Some here have Lupus headaches which are helped very well with prednison . . . but I'm more worried about a stroke. Be aware of stroke symptoms . . . here is a link you should check out. http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=4742  

Thanks for keeping us posted. Will be looking for updates.

Blessings!
