Has anyone found a cure for head pressure (especially the "constant" variety) ?
 
If so, please post it here.  I've had this symptom every day for 3 years now and I can't put up with it anymore.

I have also had severe head pressure along with daily right sided headaches for the past 5 months. I have had nasal stuffiness on the same side as the headache so I started taking OTC allergy med just to see what it would do and it helped to reduce the pressure overall. Hope this helps you.

My sinus's are in rough shape, I have started running a vaporizer in bedroom through-out the night. Also, this may be totally unrelated but I was taking Flexeril (muscle relaxer) for another disease I have and I came to realise, I always woke up with terrible headaches. I stopped using it, headaches are 1/2 what they were. Also, my teeth are in petty rough shape and I understand from my dentist that absessed teeth can cause all kinds of sinus problems, TMJ, etc. Good luck.

Check with an orthodontist in case you have a tmj disorder.

I have head pressure, but nothing wrong with sinuses. Some lady recommended me to see an ENT (ear nose and throat doc.) Hope that helps.

Hi everyone.
I get head pressure sometimes all over the head and neck on sides and in the eyes. They aren't daily but happen often from time to time. I will just be turning 16 in two weeks, and from what I've been reading through forums it usually starts at a young age. Anyone have any ideas as to why or how this happening? And how to stop it?

I have constant severe temporal headaches. Right now it has been present since Sept 2007. I have to go off work in Oct 2008 as I just couldn't take the pain any longer. I have been pretty much in bed as the pain is so bad I always need an ice pack on my head. I have tried several forms of treatments. Recently tried IMS which I have mentioned in another thread. I have seen several dr. and still working on finding the exact cause of the problem. Next week I am going to an orofacial pain dr. I am in Ont. and it seems that all the Headache and facial pain centers are in the states. If I were you, you should start with a good headache specialist and also a center as I previously mentioned. I am on MS Contin with Percocet for BT pain along with cipralex, imovane, flexeril.

Good luck

Hi,

 

I (65 years old, normal weight and nicely used) just joined this site - in my search for migraine and headache "answers". 

 

I have had a "mild" form of migraine (w/aura) for almost three years.  about four months ago (two weeks before Christmas), I started to have constant headache - a different type than with my "normal" migraine.  It felt like a constant pressure against my head where my hair is rooted (and I still have all of my hair).  It was like wearing a woollen headgear.  I considered this as "Tension Headache" - resulting from using the computer too much while sitting wrong body-/back-/head-positions staring at the monitor.

 

Consulting my neurologist did not help.  Finally, a month ago, I did seek a physiotherapist (still there), and now after close to ten sessions (mind you, it hurt extremely much), the pains eased a lot.  So, maybe a visit to a physiotherapist will help some of you?

 

Then, to my migraine.  I regard migraine as a different issue than my tension headache. Based on a book written by Dr. Alexander Mauskop, M.D. (”What doctor may not tell you about migraines”; can be bought on “Amazon.com”) where he explains a lot about headaches, causes and cures, I have now started to take “Migralief” (contains Magnesium, Ribofavin and Feverfew).  Migralief is a diatary supplement, and the effect is to reduce the blood pressure in the brain - which often creates the pain.  I need to take this twice a day for 2-3 months to have an effect.

 

In addition, I will exercise more often and continue scrutinizing my diet. 

 

Finally, always discuss these matters with your doc.

 

Good luck!

Wishes from Norway

I am now receiving treatment for my chronic pain, headaches, at a clinic in Toronto. See what you think of these websites.
Natural Pain Relief Center and Headache and Pain Relief Center.

I had this, and still do sometimes. I had CT's, neurologist appt's, etc. with no findings.

As I came to find, this is actually a small and minor issue that can easily be corrected with stress reduction and ridding of pre-occupation (assuming it's the same for you as me -- as with others I have discussed with online).

The problem is rooted in the nervous system: as many come to gripe with stress with stomach ulcers or other conditions, there are many who carry too much stress in their head.

The problem is nothing more than constricted blood vessels and scalp tension that needs to be relieved, gradually.

The pressure is typically worst when accompanied by pre-occupation, and, in turn, the pressure perpetuates the feeling of pre-occupation just by its sensation.

Relieving of the sensation instinctively, through common practices (massage, jacquzzi, supplements -- Rhodiola Roseia, Mad Phos, etc -- will allow for better blood-flow and re-inflation, as well as nurturing the nerves and scalp).

For doctors who want to throw stupid terms out there, such as psychosomatic, and prescribe pills -- there are alternatives. I am working on mine and have found that the pressure can go away.

The biggest thing is stress reduction and learning how to relax, and being pro-active. As resistant and reluctant as you might feel, you really need to nurture the way your body responts to stress.

Dear DLee,
 
I really appreciate your response.  As you can see I'm still here, still have the same exact head pressure, virtually 24/7.  Eight straight years of it, and it's caused a lot of problems--concentration and learning are affected badly.
 
There's a strong likelihood the problem is caused by stress, as I'm a very anxious person and the problem began when I went through a very stressful period, several panic attacks during that time as well.
 
But as far as stress relief, I don't really know.  Taking a 4 mile walk helps me feel better, but it's tough to tell if it relieves the head pressure.  It's become clear I don't really know how to handle this myself, because of a discipline problem:  for instance, if there's a strong chance something will not work, then I won't usually go through the effort of trying it.  I'm much more of a "quick fix" person.
 
I've thought about chiropractors, but a lot of folks say you should avoid them.  I'm now interested in trying Flexeril to see if muscle tension is a contributing factor, but my psychiatrist never calls me back, even after telling me "research it and then call if you're interested."  In other words, I don't know what to do.

Intense pressure in the head, migraines, pressure in my frontal sinuses, but my nose isnt stuffy, cognitive problems, etc.... I have had it two years.


Went to all the doctors in the world.


You NEED to get tested for LYME DISEASE and co-infections from a tick bite (Babesia, Mycoplasma, Bartonella, Ehrlichia, viruses, etc.)

I didnt test fully positive for Lyme.. I only had a few strands. I did test positive for a co-infection, further supporting th fact I have Lyme and was bitten by a tick. Not everyone gets the bullseye rash and the bacteria can lye dormant for years.


My head pressure is slowly getting better. I strongly suggest you join the Lyme Disease forum if you really want your life back and find an LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor).


Don't wait around and shun it off like I did. "Lyme disease is just sore joints and stiffness.." .... I was far far far from the truth. Over 100+ symptoms.

What did the test involve, goawaylyme? Can any doctor do it?

I would like to say try Botox injection's for this head pain. I heard that it is good for migraines.
