User :   Hi, I have a brother, aged 55 and he has been experiencing the following problem: Since January this year, his head started to feel getting the pressure of a dozen pounds of rocks weighing on his head. As the days went by, the pressure is getting heavier felt by his head no matter he sits or stands. His physical movements have been slower even though he wanted to move faster. However, his head does not feel the pressure when he is sleeping and shampooing. His blood pressure and body weight are normal. He does not have any other health problem such as diabetes. His job does not involve stress. Please tell us what kind of health problem he may be having and what kind of medical expert he should seek? Thanks and look forward to hearing from you soon.
