I went to my neurologist the other day because I have had really severe pressure in my head. Almost to the point where I cant take it anymore. Before this i had a migraine problem but my migraines seemed to ease down and now i have this pressre problem. I dont usually get a headache after the pressure, only once in a while when it is really bad. He wouldnt listened to me and insisted it was migraines. I also get bad pain in my right temple, but not like a migraine. And sometimes it hurts to touch.

I also have a 1.5 choroidal fissure cyst in my brain, does anyone have any idea what this could be, the shooting pains, the pressure, anything? any info would be appreciated.. thanks so much

:angel: Have you thought that maybe you are getting sinus problems? I take Benedryl Allergy HEADACHE PRESSURE RELIEF capsuels everyday. Sometimes I can't tell if I have a migraine or a sinus headache. But these pills sure do work! They are over the counter, and different than plain Benedryl. I also drink some coffee with it, and then the feeling is gone. It is the only thing I have found that actually works. I tried several prescribed meds from the doctor, and they do not work like the Benedryl for Headache and Pressure. Try them and see if it helps you. Don't forget the coffee!!

Hi there, I've been dealing w/ head-prssr for many yrs. Later my research took me to un-diag. tumor & bone infection in tmpl, sinus nerves near ear. The CN5
or Trigeminal nerve has 3 branches & is above & near tmpl. I had massive hd-
prssr & tmpl hurt to touch. Made squish sound sometimes. Ear fullness & hd-
fog. Many docs & tests. Later surgeries. Fixed the tumor but not hd-prssr? I
think it's that nerve spasming or inflammation from it's blood flow. Neuro's have
been insulting & throw out things like Prozac, Neurontin etc. None wk'd. Quick
sudden stabbing pains in 1 tmpl can be serious. Mine was diag. w/ a Coronal CT
& tumor found by me! Told OK, but went to 3 docs to ? the film spot. Kept saying it's a shadow or cyst. `What U see isn't!' Finally 1 took pity & path.
report looked very bad. Mine was a rare problem but still triggers the trig-nerve. Inflammation nearby will spasm that nerve. Any same-side eye problem
or cheek pain or upper back tooth ache? I use 1 mg Xanax & rest. 20min., the
prssr pops! Xanax is for anxiety but also wks. on relaxing the trig. nerve. Docs
don't really know meds. I don't have anxiety attacks except going to see them!
There's a `silent hdache' that reads bizarre. Like they make noises? Pinched
nerves in neck can cause prssr too. Ask for a MRI C-spine. It's awful when it
hits & I hope my 6th neuro I go to next mo. won't be so close minded. Any
other symtoms? I've heard of the fissure. It can cause severe migraines.
I think if it gets much bigger, surgery is needed. You should ask alot of ?'s.
Stay in touch.

:angel: Hi,

I'm no doctor so this is just my own opinion. I sometimes get migraines or they could be sinus headaches. They feel the same to me. I have been to so many doctors and complained about the pressure, headaches, etc., and I've tried their prescriptions that did not work. Each morning when I wake up I take 2 over the counter Benedryl for SINUS HEADACHE PRESSURE. If it is behind my eye, I make a small ice pack and apply it to my temple and my eye for a few secords. And here is the thing that makes it go away along with those two things I mentioned - and believe it or not, it is coffee. Drink some coffee, take the Benedryl and put ice on it. If this does not help, than it might be a migrane after all and I use Imatrex to take the pain away. The pressure can be awful and painful. But this should help. Remember, I am not telling you what to do, only what has worked for me when the doctor's have failed to help me.
Regards,
Gingerly
