I am suffering from a throbbing pain in the head from several years.

I have always had this throbbing sensation in my head whenever I climb the stairs or start walking from a sitting or recumbent position. The headache usually stops when I stop moving around. This has been ongoing for years and I wish to find out why.

Thanks for the query

Looks like you are suffering from normal pressure hydrocephalus. You will have to do a CT brain plain to see ventricular size. I might be wrong but this history of yours is a very strong suggestion towards NPH. Meet a neurologist. He might prescribe tablets to reduce the pressure
