Hi to all,
In the past couple of weeks I have been getting an increase of pressure sensation, on mainly the left side of my head. When at it's worst it feels like there's fluid running out of my ears, even though my ears are dry and clean......
I've noticed at times also my memory and ability to think clearly is being compromised, more so when the pain is at it's worst.
My history is
Awaiting a hernia operation.
The only other thing I can think of is since I was a kid, when resting I get cramp like pains through my leg or legs, to the point it drives me crazy, walking around the only seemingly solution but has never gone away and continues to be a battle to control.......
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, I'm a little concerned about this pain in me head but haven't been able to find a common medical solution......

hi :)
I suffered with those cramp like sensations in my legs for years, mostly in the evening/nighttime, and like you the only relief I could get was by walking around, not fun at 3am! After a lot of research I realised I had Restless Leg Syndrome which can be linked with low iron levels in your blood.
I started a daily iron supplement and have been symptom free for over 3 months now, what a relief!
Hope this helps for you too :)
As for the headache, typically if its one sided its usually migraine.  I have chronic migraine and each one is always slightly different in duration, pain level, area of pain ect......the last one I had gave me a lot of pressure in my ears but if its a new symptom I would get it checked out with your doctor just for peace of mind :)
