I have the same issue of Pressure/Tightness on the head for more than 12 years and this is in the
head always. I am sure the intensity could vary for different people.
I always had difficulty in explaining the condition to the doctors. It is the feeling on the head
like, after you remove a heavy hat after wearing for a long time. Or like you had too many drinks
and had no sleep for couple days. It is around the head, mainly upper fore head, behind the head and right side of the face.
There is a feeling of tightness also on the muscle under and corner of the right side of
the right eye.
From the beginning itself I had floaters in the eye, astigmatism (2 eyes have different power).
If I press on certain spots (nodes) behind my neck (Skull meets neck), I can feel the pain.
Never smoked or had any exposure to drugs. I try to do some neck exercises etc.
I had been to neurologist twice. The last Doctor was very good and tried everything including CT scan,
MRI of the brain and neck etc. All came normal. Doctor also had me go to the Chiropractor for the neck.
I have a feeling that is some nerve jammed somewhere sending this false message to the brain.
The doctor advised me at the end to ignore this and get on with life as nothing was diagnosed or critical.
I don't think about it but always looking for an end to this feeling and have a 100% productive life
as this has an impact on my work, career growth, attending meetings, memory, learning new stuff etc.
I know this is not a life threatening issue but is nuisance and becomes issue thinking about it
and has an impact.
Please feel free to share any positive findings.
