Hello everyone,

A little over a month ago I started feeling this pressure in my head. At first it was a feeling of confusion that would come and go. I started feeling very sick and lost about 10 pounds in 2 weeks. I started having bowel problems and thought it had something to do with my digestive system, but I had a endoscopy and colonoscopy and everything came out good. The reason I did those was because my stool was constantly green. Ive been to the hospital many times in the past month and half, getting tested for everything from thyroid, mono, and many other things. I have gotten scans and x-rays all over my body including a CT scan on my head. I eat constantly, but I am unable to gain any weight back and feel like my body is deteriorating... I am unable to do the normal everyday things and its getting harder for me to do anything at all. Right now its mainly just constant pressure in my head. I am scheduling an MRI for sometime this week, because I have a feeling that something was missed in my CT scan. Like other people posting here my pressure feels like a vice pressing on my head. I also am very fatigued all the time and whenever I eat I feel like its not giving me any energy.. If anyone has experienced this or knows anyone who has please let me know because I am in a fog right now. I also forgot to mention that it all started after an anxiety attack I had one night before I went to bed. I also want to mention that I am 25 years old.

Thank you

Ask them for a full body cat scan. Green bowels, means usually some kind of infection. You can request your test results and a second opinion. You need to see a neurologist. I kind of get the feeling from what you described they are missing something on the CT scan too. I'm 29, and happen to have like everything on high heaven while working health care. Have xrays done at a chiropractor center. Sometimes, you can get pressure from being missalligned and inflamed muscles against nerves for the confusion, fatigue, etc.

You might be dehydrated, try Vita Coco because it replenishes you faster and for a longer period of time than both water and Gatorade.

So sorry you are not feeling well and having headaches. I have had temple pressure headaches for ten years now. Have had all tests done which have been negative. No narcotic helps my pain. My headaches are horrible and constant and there is nothing that is going to help me.
i hope your MRI helps you with a diagnosis. I would suggest you have the MRI with contrast.
Good luck
