I am experiencing the same thing, burning sensation in my head in two different places, have had the burning sensation go down my left side of face, have tenderness around my eyes, and forehead, sometimes I feel so much pressure around my head like a vise,it just varies from time to time. I have a white noise in my head. It has steadily got worse, and I am due for a MRI. Right now as I am writing, I am feeling pressure on the top of my head in one spot..and my head is hurting as is my eyes. I had a shelf fall on my head about three weeks ago..and been to a chiropractor who says that my neck and shoulders are a mess from that accident and it seems that it has really been noticable more so since then. I also have vertigo at times, have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia..but was not bad until my Mother passed, which did not devastate me but now am wondering if my body is grieving even if I did not. Right now, I am anxious to have the MRI to rule out tumor or aneurism..and maybe will have less worry?

I have been having this pressure headache in the front of my head for about 7 months now, and since i've been having these headaches its been very hard for me to put 2 things together or make connections in my head without assistance, its hard for me to talk (studdering/ mixing up words), i have also almost fainted multiple times & when this would happen it would come out of no where i would get all hot , sweaty, & dizzy to the point where i could barely walk, & all i could see was brightness like i have been staring at the sun to long. The weird thing when this happens i was fully hydrated and had just eaten. Someone please help, i literally have no idea what would cause this. :/

i never saw my tick or bite mark.
one week of antibiotics wont do crap.
ive been on them for 6 months and FINALLY made some progress this week!
i added Mepron to my zithromax and had 4 days of migraine hell then it lifted and now its just a nagging headache but im sure a few more months of treatment will take care of it.
i was ready to kill myself too.
lyme lyme lyme babesia babesia babesia. if i didnt find my lyme and babs, id have died one way or another.

aej that sounds like lyme too, and babesia, cause of the hot flashes/sweating.
order western blot for lyme disease from Igenex. to order its free. have a doc sign for it to be done, it costs some money but its the only way to get a REAL anwser since our docs tests are unreliable. if you have any positive bands, you have lyme and probably babesia and once you start treating for both your headahces should improve, if you are like me, it will work. you just cant quit, gotta fight for it.

Dear Tami1961,
I thought I was alone after seeing 11 uncaring specialists which include neurologists & ophthalmologists.
It horrifies me to see how many innocent people are suffering throughout the world due to doctors.
I had 2 brain fluid leaks for 2 years. My nose dripping all time & into chest cavity.
I had a lumbar puncture done & confirmed my CSF leak.
Also other brain damage too.
Other patients my radiologist helped didn't have CSF leaking out of body it was internal but painful.
It's now 18.5 months since my surgery.
My heart breaks for you & all the others on this website who suffer pain & pressure in their heads.
Take care all.

Hi. I know this was posted a long time ago, but I've been having a pain for the past 7 months that is basically what bollyb is describing.

Have you figured anything out since it's been a while?? I would love to know. Thanks.

just got out of er today and was prescribed simply sudafed. not saying its for you but had the same symptoms. Felt like I wanted to dye. constant head pressure, blurred vision. Nasal cavaties cause the pressure some how and it feels deeper in the forhead. It actually wasnt, heard the ringing, tingling in hands, cold sometimes, light sensitive, etc etc. Try sudafed, worked for me. Just saying.

I have had chronic head pressure for a year and a half now. Also had dizziness when on neurontin.

Mine was a mild headache which then turned into excruciating pain after I got sick. I wonder if it was untreated viral or bacterial meningitis? Has anyone been tested for that? I also have anxiety. How many people have anxiety as well?

Mine came after the head pressure started but I wonder if I had it before.

Sending love to you all. We will get through this, it will get better. Also, if you haven't yet, go try a kinesiologist- mine has helped a good amount.

Hi, so this is my first time here. It seems we all have a lot in common. I've had severe back head pressure and inner ear pressure that's in a word, torturous, for a year and a half now. The pressure is pretty severe and never let's up - 24/7. Everytime I let air in my ears they crackle like my eustation tubes are swollen but I have no hearing loss. I also just flew on a plane and I was fine. This pressure is accompanied by a constant stiff neck and exhaustion. I've also has gastro issues for about 7 years and my wife thinks the two are related. Finally, I was diagnosed with hashimotos and am taking armour thyroid but I see no change.
I'm on my 20th doctor. I've had MRI of head along with MRV and MRA and Catscan and X-ray. MRI of cervical spine, back and lumbar. I've been tested for Lyme and coinfections many times with no positive. I spent thousands with an LLMD who tested me for everything including Igenex and still nothing. After which, on a hunch, an infectious disease dr. Put me on an intravenous IV of rocephrin for 28 days with no change. Also been on doxy and a few others but everytime I take an antibiotic, my stomach issues get worse (which is why my wife thinks its related). Supposedly hashimotos is an autoimmune disease that can cause inflammation but I've never read anyone experiencing these symptoms this badly. I have also noticed several multinodular goiters in my throat that have been checked and were normal (a side effect of the hashimotos). Wondering if this could be causing the ear/head pressure? Recently had sinus surgery to hopefully relieve the ear pressure with no success.
Have drastically changed my diet and no longer eat wheat or dairy. Almost no sugar at all and very little animal protein. Been doing this for 6 months and not the slightest difference. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks so much :)

So I have been experiencing a chronic sensation of head pressure (or tightness) for exactly a year now. I say head pressure and not headache because this is definitely not a typical headache. It is not (usually) a painful sensation but rather an extremely uncomfortable one. It literally feels like there is not enough room in my skull for my brain or like someone is constantly squeezing my head. From time to time I have experienced pain/pressure in my face, especially around/behind my nose and in my jaws, as well as twitching eyelids. I also experienced vertigo and lightheadedness. I have been to several doctors who have ruled out everything after going through C-T scans and MRIs. A neurologist put me on klonopin for 10 months which treated the symptoms pretty well but the side effects made me feel miserable and whenever the drug would wear off the head pressure and face pressure/pain symptoms would come back just as bad as before. Now I am not on any medication, and can say that the symptoms are not as bad as they were 1 year ago, but the fact that I still experience them almost all day everyday makes them bothersome nonetheless. Also want to mention that I have been tested for Lyme and I do not have it, so this problem does exist beyond the cause being bacterial and viral infections.

I will say, that I firmly believe that this is not a problem that can be fixed with standard medication. From my experience, having gone from where I was a year ago to where I am today, I can tell you that anticonvulsants and other medication used to treat headaches/migraines are not the cure or the answer to a problem like this. They may treat symptoms but they do not cure the problem.

When I became determined to get off the medication that I was on, I began exercising for 30 minutes 4-5 times a week (bike or treadmill). I had initially thought that I would never be able to get off the meds because whenever they wore off I felt a terrifying sensation of impending doom, like I was going to have a seizure or worse. However, through my exercise regimen, I was able to drop the meds completely and now my symptoms are far less severe than they were before I started taking the meds.

No one wants to hear this but unfortunately the fact is that anxiety is a major factor in these situations. Stress is a real chemical that our bodies produce (cortisol) which is interconnected with anxiety levels. When our bodies produce too much of it, it can lead to a myriad of health problems, including neurological. Based on my experience and the progress that I have made thus far, I firmly believe that in order to get better, you MUST eliminate stress from your life. Believe me, I know this is easier said than done with a problem that haunts you like this day in and day out, you can't help but feel anxious and hopeless at times. Here are my recommendations for everyone:

1) Exercise is essential, 30 mins 4-5 days a week will do wonders for your (mental) health, exercise is clinically proven to release growth factors in the brain that cause neurogenesis (new brain cell growth), and exercise also lowers the amount of cortisol (stress) in the body.
2) DO NOT TAKE PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS - I promise these will only cause you to become physically dependent and will not cure you of the problem
3) Try taking natural supplements that help reduce cortisol/stress levels, the one that I have been taking is called Ashwagandha which was recommended to me by a real psychiatrist and not some alternative medicine person without an M.D. This herb is clinically proven to reduce cortisol levels in the body. I would recommend buying "Sensoril" which is a patented highly potent form of Ashwagandha. With high levels of cortisol/stress in the body, it can become impossible for your condition to go away, this is a fact. It’s a very cheap supplement, only costs about $10-$15 dollars. Although you may feel a difference initially when taking this, you must take it for several weeks to fully realize the effect as your body will start to adjust only once cortisol levels are reduced for a prolonged period.
4) Vitamins - you don't need to run out and buy every vitamin in the store but there are a few vitamins that promote brain health that I have found to be of help, namely the Omega-3 fatty acid DHA, and Uridine. Together these substances have been shown in studies to create new brain synapses through neurite growth and even treat symptoms of depression.
5) Find activities that relax you, I am going to be trying Hot Yoga soon per the advice of my doctor.
6) SLEEP – our brains need sleep to heal. When we sleep our brains (and bodies) undergo a process that heals us that does not happen when we are awake. Sleep deprivation also causes increased stress/cortisol/anxiety so it is essential that you get adequate sleep

As I’ve said, I am still dealing with this problem, but my symptoms are nowhere near how bad they were a year ago when this first started. I think anything involving the head/brain is innately a tricky thing; although the brain is not a static organ, it takes time and requires the right ingredients and regimen to heal. I will respond to this thread in a month or so with an update on how I feel. I urge you all to seek a remedy like mine which I can tell you from experience has absolutely made a difference for me and my quality of life. Good luck to you all.

Hi all, New to this as I too am trying to find answers to my chronic head pressure which I have now had for 21 years. It feels like it has got worse in recent years. My symptoms are pressure in roof mouth, behind nose and eyes, tingling in teeth roots and finger tips. I have had 2 nasal surgeries for a deviated septum which were meant to fix the problem but both failed. I have had every X-ray and scan available all coming up clear. I have seen neurologists but all to no avail. I have forgotten what it is like to have a "clear" head but imagine it would be an amazing feeling which would renew my life! I sympathise with fellow sufferers as it does make life difficult and because you dont show any symptoms family and friends tend to forget you are suffering. I hope through this forum I will find some answers. Best of luck to all

Trigeminal neuralgia

Historically TN has been called "suicide disease" due to Dr. Harvey Cushing's 0.6% mortality rates involving 123 cases of TN during 1896 and 1912.[32][33] Some example cases of TN include:

Entrepreneur and author Melissa Seymour was diagnosed with TN in 2009 and underwent microvascular decompression surgery in a well documented case covered by magazines and newspapers which helped to raise public awareness of the illness in Australia. Seymour was subsequently made a Patron of the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association of Australia.[34]
One of India's biggest film stars, Salman Khan, was diagnosed with TN in 2011, resulting in tremendous media coverage in the country and abroad. He underwent surgery in the US.[35]
All-Ireland winning Gaelic footballer Christy Toye was diagnosed with the condition in 2013. He spent five months in his bedroom at home, returned for the 2014 season and lined out in another All-Ireland final with his team.[36]

I am so sorry to read of people, other than me, plagued with chronic headaches. I have a number of things to ask my Headache and Pain Relief Doctor at next appointment.

I tried Topamax. It was supposed to stop the pain, according to my Neurologist. It only caused more pain. Pain was going up my head and when I came off the med the pain came down with it. Tried Fentanyl Patch but got sick and stopped. Could not cope with Oxycontin and did not continue with it. Nothing more was tried by either Neurologist. I am now getting nerve blocks. They help me manage better. It is not a cure and it doesn't stop all the pain. I have stopped taking 8 hr Arthritis Tylenol due to rebound headaches. I have also tried some med samples for migraines and Tylenol for migraines. I am off Lyrica. Off due to weight gain. I do have nerve damage. Once off I did realize it helped some. They are now using Lyrica for migraines. It is like gabapentin I believe.

I have been to so many Churches. I have read that pain is written about in the Bible. Churches are very serene and peaceful. I love the architecture and stained windows. Some have little gift shops. They unfortunately, have not stopped my headaches. I walk with pain. I don't need to be in the dark but don't mind quietness sometimes.

My headaches are more of a cervicogenic type. It all started with pressure.

Hi All, I was able to control(not eliminate) my head pressure symptoms. I moved from New Jersey to South California only because of this problem.

Its kind of loop process. stress to headache to stress

45-1 hour walk/running (preferable in morning)3-4 time in a week.
stop all OTC meds. etc. nasal congestion/antihistamine
go to bed at 9:30 max (I know its hard)
try to move to the area where barometer pressure is stable. like desert place, arizona, San diego, look it up
Good luck!

I have been having a migraine for 3 weeks now and is not normal for me, so I went to see my doctor and demand that he do a CAT scan on me because I am afraid that I could have a brain tumor. Brain tumor run in my family. In the mean time he had change my med twice already and my migraine still have not gone away. I can't sleep because it hurt so bad. I came across this web page and its nice to know that I'm not the only one suffering because I'm very scared. My body is very weak and I will love to get an 8 hours of sleep that I want to check myself in to ER but I don't do well with needles in my arms. This Migraine SUCK. If anyone have any suggestion what else I can do please let me know. I am also going through lot of stress. I know that is the major cause of it.

I have a trick that will help some of you. I get 4 different types of migraines and have been dealing with them for over 50 years since a kid. For the migraines that have a lot of head pressure, it is usually caused by sinus, a sinus migraine. What has worked for me for years is taking Benedryl Allergy Sinus Headache meds over the counter. I buy them at Walmart and get the Equate brand and it is really cheap (about $3). If you have facial pain on the sides of your nose, above your eyebrows when you press, that tells you for sure. It will take the pressure inside your head way down. If you dry up the sinus too much, however, it will make a migraine worse, so keep your nostrils moist by inhaling shower steam or putting water drops there. This med is a decongestant and a antihistamine combined. If you have high blood pressure, be careful taking decongestants. I usually just have to take one pill. I also found if I take it before bedtime, I sleep good and wake without the migraine I normally get daily. This wins many times over my Imitrex shots, Maxalt , FIORICET, etc.
My second trick is an old OTC med called Anacin. If the pressure is caused by a cluster headache, this will do the trick for me. It says it is only aspirin and caffeine, but it is a miracle drug for me at times. Something about the inactive ingredients that work, I guess. It does not come back and backlash like Excedrin migraine does.
Hope my experience helps someone. It was a life changer finding these meds!
