there was no pain or stuffy/runny nose when I had the bad pressure and went to a sinus specialist dr. and was given Biaxin...it was just tremendous head pessure...and it cleared up in 24 hrs and I took the full course of the antibiotic...the only thing I felt besides the severe pressure in my head was it also felt like I had a terrible toothache(I went to my dentist and there was no problem with my teeth)...he told me to see an ENT dr...so I did.Do you have any pain in your teeth at all????

Also you know the nose,ears & eyes are all connected and when one acts up it can cause problems with the head.Have you ever seen an ENT(ears,nose,throat)dr.?They specialize witrh all that...forget the family physicians...they're really not educated to handle anything more than common aches,pains,colds,flu,etc.

If your eyes,ears,throat bother you also then I'd see an ENT dr....the head pressure is coming from somewhere and that type of dr. should be able to figure that out for you.

So did you stop taking the vitamin D yet?...just wondering....

I did get the copies of my blood tests in the mail.Well let me tell you this...that dr. is full of nonsense too!My blood showed an elevated protein level,low lymphocytes,borderline low platelets,high MPV(mean platelet volume) and the biggest shock was that my B12 level was 998....yeah and that was on March 4th(last B12 shot was on Jan.4th)...then onMarch 8th my B12 level was 605....what do you think about that?Strange how it dropped like 400 points in four days....I wonder what the level is now....

I was upset because that dr. didn't check my iron or ferritin,but my magnesium was good at 2(in the past I had been low on that at 1.6).

Well I'll keep searching to find more info on consistent head pressure.....

A lot of this is interesting to me. Yes I do get pain in my teeth from time to time and it is usually when the pressure is really bad. My eyes have also been bloodshot and dry for a couple years (I cant wear contact lenses anymore, because of constant dryness) and now it looks like the red tissue in the corners is inflamed. Sometimes when I'm lying down at night, trying to sleep, and the pressure is utterly killing me, that's also when I seem to get sinus drainage.

How would I get the referral, though?

I quit the 1000 IU of D3. However I'm still taking a capsule that has both 10,000 IU of Vitamin A and 400 IU of D3 (fish-oil derived, not beta carotene.) I was thinking maybe the Vitamin A could help with the dry eyes but I haven't noticed any effect. Not to mention I think low Vitamin A can cause dehydration, or something. Should I skip this one too?

Thanks again for all your help.

...yeah a specialist would cost more I agree.

yesterday I spent hours researching consistent head pressure....I found a few things that possibly might help you....

there was this 44 yr. old man who was in the army...his head pressure started not long after he went overseas.He had an eye exam,CT scans,allergy testing,head x-rays and they couldn't find out what his problem was.Even after he was through in the army and went home the drs. couldn't figure out what was causing it.

He said that he had a heavy/tight feeling from his eye brows,temples to the back of his head.He would wake up with it everyday and it only let up when he was outside exercising.He was sensitive to bright light,had tinnitus,was lightheaded also.

One dr. said it might be a "left-over" inner ear viral infection or a mild,chronic tension headache or a eustachian tube problem(ears).He had about 6 posts I think on there,

but he never posted back to let anyone know if he finally was dx or he got better.He had similar sx as you so it was interesting reading his posts.

I read a bunch of other things and here's what I found so far:

try using saline nose spray(no medicine in it)to see if that helps...give it at least a week to get results

could be coming from the neck(several people were dx with neck problems,loss of natural curve in neck was mentioned)

anti-depressants can cause this(I heard of that before...actually seen a special on TV about it...years ago...)

you can try sudafed to see if that helps

could be related to the back also

well my friend I guess there are a ton of possibilities why you have consistent head pressure

as far as antibiotics go,that is a personal choice for you and if you'd rather not take them for whatever reason that's your choice,but you are right about the side effects...if you knew you'd get better with them I'm sure you' take them,but I can see you're not a fan of antibiotics(that makes two of us).
