Hi, I am 22 years old. For the past 4 months, I have suffered from constant pressure in the back of the lower portion of my skull (upper neck) that feels like it radiates into the back of my head and even in my face. Some times my jaw gets a tingly sensation too. My ears are also constantly pressured as if I just was on an airplane and I constantly am popping them thinking it will give relief but it does not. I have gone to chiropracter, ENT, trigger point specialist, everything and noone can give me a straight diagnosis.

I am desperate for an answer. Anyone have any insight?

Odd that the Chiropractor did not give you a dx. Did they do there own xrays? Have Neurological backround? There are such Chiros out there.

To me and I am no way a medical professional. It sounds like the trigeminal nerve at the back of you head may have pressure on it for some reason. Thus the tingly in you jaw. The nerve follows up over your head around your face to your jaw.

Can bother the ears also.

I take 100mg of ZINC for ear popping and buzzing/ringing. Neuro told me and it works 95%.

Could be tension also I suppose, anything going on in your life makiing you nuts?

Best suggestion I have is go to a good Neuro hospital and see a diagnostic specialist.

Peace and strength
