In summary from last post, still having headaches behind eyes and front and top of head. I had a CT scan and came back normal. Had blood work done, came back normal. Blood pressure fine. No dizziness. Went to ENT specialist, said ears were fine. My family doctor put me on a medicin called Midrin for my headaches. I still wake w/headaches that continue throughout the day. This is going on for about 5 weeks. Never have I experieneced this before. I have a lot of post nasal drip, however, my nose is not "running". No couging. My doctor is calling these at this point "tension headaches". Anybody really know what that means or how long they last? It is getting frustrating getting up w/these headaches all of the time. My headaches are described as like a constant pain, not pulsating pain. Any advice or anyone have such symptoms?

I was having a similar problem, except that I was getting blurry vision and some double vision. I went to an opthamologist to check my eyes that said I had a little hemmoraging on my optical nerves. I had a cat scan, and 2 mri's one for my head and one for my eyes (orbits). they showed no masses, but I was still having headaches. I then was sent to a neuro-opthamologist that told me I was having these headaches due to high spinal/brain fluid pressure. They did a lumbar puncture (a form of spinal tap) to measure the opening pressure. I was told that a 20 was normal and I had a 47. So they drained fluid. I am not sure if this helps or not, but you may want to ask your doc about it.
