This is my first time in any forum, much less a medical forum.  I've read a couple of posts in here that sound similar to my situation.  Just wanted to see if anyone could help or had any thoughts. 
I've had constant unilateral head pressure (left side) for just over four months.  It all began while I was at work.  I felt real faint and dizzy and ended up in the ER.  Soon after I began to have pressure on the left side of my head (pressure began at the base of my head and gradually moved to all of the left side).  It is better and worse at times, but always constant.  I've had a head MRI, MRA and CT that all came back negative.  I had a cervical MRI that said I had a bone spur in my neck.  The docs seem to think that this bone spur somehow has caused all of this.  Is this possible?  I've never heard of that before.  To me, my symptoms resemble other members in this forum with vascular compression headaches and vascular spasms that cause head pressure.  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.  Before this all began I had probably had only 3 or 4 minor headaches in my whole life!

It sounds like what your doc said is plausible. Try taking 400mg of magnesium, and 400mg of riboflavin as a preventative measure. Have you seen a Neurologist? Maybe one of these would help: massage, yoga, or acupuncture. Good Luck
