for last 5 weeks I feel pressure in front of my head and i don't hear stuff well, I hear everything as if i'm in a tunnel. Feeling is not there whole day, it comes and it goes. Doctor thought it is sinusitis, but after a two weeks of treatment pressure didn't go away. On the internet i found it could be migraine, but in the description of migraine i couldn't find anything about symptom that worries me the most, when i lean forward or lift something heavy pressure groves rapidly, and friend told me that it could be something serious. Can anyone tell me how serious it is, or what is it, or at least is this last thing very dangerous?

I'm very afraid and very thankful for your answers!! :-)
P.S. hope you understand my problem, because I'm not so good with english :-)

This sounds so much like what I experienced, beginning last Nov. 1.  It started after a really bad bout with sinuses - I coughed "violently" for 2 nights, and it gave me a bad headache which never went away.  It was excruciating (that means REALLY painful for those, like you, who aren't good with English!!) when I would bend over or lift something heavy.  After 4 months it got to where I couldn't even look down at my hands if I held them in front of me!  Then someone on this board described their symptoms and said it was "occipital neuralgia".  They tried many things but nothing helped much until they tried taking Cymbalta, an antidepressant.  I did NOT want to try it, because I wasn't despressed - I was in pain!!  But somehow it works on the nerves to lessen the pain - they use it for nerve pain in the feet of diabetics.  So I tried it ---- and it started working slightly within 30 minutes!  I've been taking it for 7 months now.  I still have the problem, but it's not painful enough to stop what I have to do.  Tomorrow I'm going out of the country for a week, and when I get home I plan to see a chiropractor.  I think that will help  a lot.

I'm sorry I won't be able to reply to you after this until I get home next week, but I'll be praying that you find a solution and get relief.  You're not alone in this - I've found that many people have experienced it, and the doctors are completely baffled by it.  Cymbalta might not work for you, but there IS help out there somewhere, so don't give up!!!

Thank you for this detailed answer! I must say that it passed all by itself few days ago and I'm very happy about that, especially when i read in your replay how bad it can get. Hope it'll pass you too.
