Hi Everyone,
New here! So here's my story...
I have a feeling of constant pressure in my head. Similar to that which you get when trying to pick up something that's too heavy or trying to blow up a balloon and you pop a vessel in your eye. It's kind of like a headache but not really painful just annoying. It also feel worse when bending to play on the floor with my kids and I have a sort of dizzy feeling too.
Anyone else have this? Any advice?

Have you been checked for a sinus infection? It sounds like it may be sinus-related. How long have you had the pressure? I would get it checked out with your primary doc just to rule out any allergies, infections, etc.

Good luck,

Thanks Amanda. I've had sinus infections before and this is not the same type of pressure. It really feels like my blood pressure is too high in my head and that a vein/vessel is going to pop. I'm going to check it out with the doctor today. I've taken my blood pressure but it's normal 86 over 125

Dear verncom,
Let us know what your doctor says.  There's a subgroup of us here who have been dealing with daily head pressure for years, myself included.  Most of us don't have a diagnosis, either.
Hope to hear back,

Hello everyone, I am new here and came across these posts. I had/have the very same problem. when you bend over it feels like your head fills up. And I would get very bad vertigo spins. My left eye would also be very blurry. I made a eye appt and was told I have papilledema. I also had increased crainal pressure. I had to have a spinal tap to relieve that. I have what is called psudotumor. They believe I had a clot and for some reason lived to tell about it. I have a narrowing in my right transverse sinus.
PLEASE go to your eye dr and have your eyes checked for papilledema, it was my eye dr that saved my life.
