I have been experiencing Constant head pressure, please suggest

Hello, I've been experiencing head pressure for the last 9 months, usually located either in my forehead, my temples, or in/by both of my ears; I didn't notice the ear pressure until I quit chewing gum every day. Along with that, my vision is jumpy/shaky in that I have a hard time controlling its movement when I try to read. My eye doctor said my eyes were fine, my ENT took a CT Scan of my sinuses after rounds of antibiotics didn't work and said my sinuses were fine. Allergist said allergies don't really cause head pressure, and that my ears had no fluid in them. An MRI didn't show any brain abnormalities. Currently, my neuro told me he really doesn't know what's wrong, so he has me on nortriptyline which hasn't helped so far. I find relief when I'm running, in the shower, or moving around a lot at work. Also, it started a couple weeks after I hit my head on a doorframe- but I did't pass out/EMT's said I didn't need stitches and I didn't have a concussion. Any help at all would be appreciated.

You may have Trigeminal Neuralgia. Please check out the trigeminal neuralgia association & request a free package of materials from that. They also have a book called Striking Back. Could be found cheaper on ebay.

Also; if you have carpets, have them professionally cleaned. It may be allergies that are causing your symptoms. Wipe down everything in the house, including walls, baseboards, windowsills, etc. Research on what cleaning chemicals to use over the internet. Use only unfragranced products for wash, etc. Never use Bounce. I have had a horrible reaction to bounce fabric softener sheets. Research adverse reactions or allergies to this if you currently use them. It is a real eye opener.

Any questions please do respond. I have had lots of neurological problems, head injury, allergy problems. I am more than happy to share what I have learned.

Hope this helps to solve some of your problems.

P.S. Make sure that you don't have a mold allergy in the house either.
