why do I feel pressure in my head?

The last month Oct, 20th I came from my work as always, but something weird happened to me, I had the most horrible throbbling head that I’ve ever have. I went to my family doctor, he sent me to ER, for a ct scan, because he didn’t know what was that. He thought could be migranes but the light didnt bother me. Ct-scan was completely fine, just gave me pills to low my pressure in my head, and see a neurology…so far I didn’t go. The pills that he gave me works good but ultimately I have problem when I’m using the computer or watching tv, for long time, when the pictures in my computer change or move drastically I feel a bad pressure in my head. I can’t be long time watching something, specially if it small, because i feel my eyes tired or presure… What does it can be?

Split from an existing thread, and moved to IMHO since it is on a specific medical problem.

The obvious advice is to go to the neurologist. Throbbing pain and messed-up vision don’t sound like something to wait around on.

What medication did they put you on?

It’s probably a sea witch that’s coming to take your voice.
Or you should go to a real doctor and not just someone on a message board who is a big fan of Disney movies.

See your neurologist, as soon as possible. It could be a lot of things, especially because it’s hard to tell from your post what kind of medication you were given.

I’m curious too— I had a sustained problem with unexplained pressure on one side of my head and face for a couple of years (and still do, to a lesser extent), the cause of which was not revealed by CT or MRI scans, which were normal. I wasn’t offered any medication, I presume because I described it (truthfully) not as pain so much as constant pressure.

I’ve heard people describe wisdom teeth coming in as ‘pressure’, but it was isolated to the jaw/sinus areas and not in the crown of the head.

Do as your doctor tells you and go see the neurologist.

A diuretic could be used – I was given one for pseudotumor.
