Posted on Tue, 17 Oct 2017
Question: my friend who is a Male and is 64 yrs. old has been suffering from sinus congestion -- he is complaining of head pressure and his eyes hurt -which comes and goes. the pressure seems to happen more later afternoon into night. his blood pressure is normal, has been doing nasal flush; did a CT scan (no results yet) he is on feurset (Sp.?) for headache and is now on prednisone and has finished that -- Also, went to eye dr. everything is fine. What do you think can be causing him to have such pressure on top of head, sometimes back and side but not all at one. Thank you.
