Consistent weird heavy feeling on the back of head causing interrupted sleep, on medicines for high BP. Cause?

Hi, I am 42 years old female. For a day now i have been having this weird heavy feeling at the back of my head. Alo, I am having a tough time staying asleep long enough. I keep waking up with this buzzed up feeling through the night. I am on medication for HBP which keeps it under control as it was not so high to start with. I am 5.3 tall and weigh 178.

Cardiologist 's  Response
You are a bit overweight - that has no relation to your present complaint...
Also it may not be related to your blood pressure - you say it is well controlled...
Heaviness lasting a day and causing sleep disturbance suggests a different reason - there are no clues in what you have written. You ought to see a neurologist for proper assessment assistance. If it is not relieved, you may need MRI or CT scan for further evaluation
You can use simple over the counter pain reliever - like paracetamol - in the meanwhile
Good luck
