Hello & welcome to Healing Well. We are not drs here so we really cannot tell you what is causing your symptoms. If you were seen by ER only, I suggest that you get in & see your primary care dr.. Have you had your eyes checked by an eye dr? If this has been going on 6 months, perhaps your dr can refer you to a neurologist for a consult.

I hope you can get some help. Take care.

Head pressure is a mystery condition that doctors generally don't know how to treat. However, you can find quite a few people online dealing with it.

Those who have found relief did so in many different ways... suggesting different underlying causes.

Some are:
food sensitivity -- e.g. red food dye, sulphate, msg, artificial sweeteners.
Neck tension or vertibral artery impingement... do showers help? Stretches? Posture?
Stress, hypertension.
Nutritional deficiency... vitamin D deficiency in particular.

Try working through these. I suffered on and off for 10 years.
