Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
I can understand your condition.
Please don't be afraid.
Have you checked your blood pressure?
Do you have diabetes?
Does this heaviness of the head appears in periods of stress or at rest?
LPR will be taken care with the following precautions.
Follow a bland diet (low acid levels, low in fat, not spicy)
Eat frequent, small meals
Lose weight
Avoid the use of alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine
Do not eat food less than 2 hours before bedtime
Raise the head of the bed before sleeping. Place a strong, solid object (like a board) under the top portion of the mattress.
Take antiacid medications.
If the heaviness persists please consult a neurologist.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
