Research is ESSENTIAL.
Its is very sad that I knew a lot more than some of the physicans I saw. Please <<all>> take some time to research different headache topics so you are informed!

Are we saying that head pressure without migraine is more likely with Chiari, or with a CSF leak?
And you folks should also know that head pressure can be present without either condition, as lots of things can be behind this symptom; I've known some folks online who claimed it was due to dietary sensitivity, when taking out the offending item from their diet it became less noticeable, etc etc.
I don't know about CSF leaks, but I know that Chiari is a serious condition, not something anyone would ever want; let's not scare ourselves half to death here eh? My set of symptoms lines up very well with Chiari so that's why I don't go to the sites to read more about it, as I get a lot of anxiety from reading about conditions that could match what I have going on...
