Suggest Treatment For Headache
Tension type headaches and anemia to consider.
Hello and thanks for using HCM.
I have read your question and understand your concerns.
The answer to your question is yes, tension type headaches hurt and may cause tightness feeling in the head.
Since you changed your diet, anemia also may cause such symptoms, so, before to say that tension type headache is the culprit, blood tests are necessary to confirm or exclude this possibility.
Discuss with your primary care Doctor about these issues.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Seems not a serious condition.
Conditions such hormonal changes, stress and anxiety, etc. may cause pressure feeling and spotting outside the period,so, I don't think you need to be worried much more than necessary about any serious condition.
If these issues persist, get evaluated medically by your primary care Doctor.
Hope this helps.
