Hi, I am 35 and my head pressure began just over 2 and half months ago. 1 dr diagnosed me with a sinus infection and put me on a antibiotic, which I had a bad reaction to.. However, I ended up in ER a few a days later as the head pressure just became unbearable. They did a CT, came back normal. The ER dr said I didn't have a sinus infection at all as I had no symptoms of it, just head pressure so he diagnosed me with cluster headaches and prescribed Butal (basically tylenol and caffeine) to help with the headaches. It did help keep them at bay for a while but I still wanted to get to the source. I went to a Chiropractor who showed me on Xray that my C1 and C2 vertebrae are out of alignment and that this may be the cause of my head pressure. I went a few times for an adjustment but didn't feel that it was resolving my issue. I went to a Nuero dr who ordered an MRI which came back normal. We took it a step further and I had a Lumbar Puncture (spinal tap) and blood work done today at the hospital to check for possible spinal fluid leak, lupus, MS, infection, inflammation, etc.. If no answers from these tests, then it's back to the drawing board I guess. I have always been very healthy, active and recently began a mostly all organic diet. Just not sure what could have caused this head pressure. The last apartment I rented had mold/mildew issues I feel. It was a nice place right on the water and would have never thought it had issues but I could smell it on my clothes after a few months when I traveled. Although we couldn't see evidence of it, they did 2 ozone treatments over the course of 2 or 3 months. The building went under renovation 4 months after i moved in, my head pressure began 2 months after that.. After the smell came back after the 3rd time, they ended up letting me out of my lease. I was there a total of 8 months. Maybe this could be the cause of it in my case, we'll see. I will keep you posted. Thanks.
