Forum Name: Headaches

Question: Top of head pain / pressure

 lulu32 - Mon Sep 03, 2007 9:46 am

32-F-None. For approx. 4 months I've had persistent pain on the top of head. It seems more constant, not throbbing and I feel a sense of pressure at the top of head. No OTC pain reliever works!
Thanks, Yulia

User avatar If you are not getting relief from OTC pain relievers it would be advised for you to see a neurologist. Headaches can certainly be hard to handle. Good luck.
