I've never posted on a forum before but I'm curious to see if anyone else out there has ever felt this way. about a month ago I started having constant headaches. At first they were dull but continue to get worse. I feel as though I have constant pressure on the left side of my head and face. I thought possibly a sinus infection but have no symptoms other then the pressure. I had a ct scan last week and it came back normal. My doctor seems to think I have a pinched nerve in my neck, although I have no neck pain. Advil doesn't touch the pain or pressure so I've just been living with it. Has anyone else ever experienced this?

welcome to the forum

The constant pressure {no pain?} does not sound like a migraine, although there are some with no pain.

I might suggest seeing a Chiropractor with a Neurologic backround.
He will take his own x-rays and review the MRI. If it is a nerve being pinched by a vertabre he can fix it most likely, no surgery.

Best of luck
