Hi, I am new here. I seem to get headaches on top of my head alot. My hair will hurt if I move it about. Also, I get pressure on my face (eye area, sometimes my face feels pressure too. I also get dizzy at times ( this part is a bit scary!). Is this migranes? I have had CT scans and they are fine, but I feel unwell a lot. Any advice out there. I hate living like this it is ruining my life. mad

Hi Topper1967,

Welcome to Healing Well, sorry you a suffering with this. Was it a Neurologist that had the CT scans done? If you have not already seen a Neurologist, you do need to see one preferably one who is a Headache Specialist!

Migraine affects everyone in different ways, and there are also many different types of headache, and it is very important to get a Neurologists diagnosis of which type of headache you have. This way you can ensure that you get the correct treatment.

Please keep in touch and let us know how you get on. Take care.

Hi topper1967,

Welcome to Healing Well. Unfortunately we're not medical professionals just headache sufferers. Your story sounds familiar. I suffer from migraines which cause a lot of pain to my head and face and have been very disruptive to my life. I have had a lot of tests including blood tests and CT scans which all show that I am a healthy person.

I have a team of medical professionals who have helped me. These include my neurologist who specializes in headaches, family doctor, psychologist who specializes in depression and chronic pain and a naturopath. I am in no means cured but they all help in their own way.

I hope this helps by letting you now you're not alone. Keep in touch.
