My 40-year-old son has had almost constant head pressure since August of 2006. He has been to a neurologist, a neurosurgeon, his PCP many times and has had MRI's, brain scans, cervical x-rays, spinal tap ... all to no avail. He is on several medications which don't seem to help. Physicians are at a loss for an answer. He is so miserable. He cannot exert himself in any way without this pressure getting much worse. He was so active, lifting weights, hiking, a very hard worker. He cannot concentrate at work, he can't lie down to sleep, he can't even get comfortable when sitting. He used to have an occasional beer or a glass of wine but he cannot tolerate these anymore.This started so suddenly. He was at the gym one day in August lifting weights and he blamed it on a neck injury from the weightlifting but now he doesn't know if that was the cause or not. He looks so tired each time I see him and I am so worried about him. He said if driving a spike into his head would help, he would do that. He is becoming depressed. He is married and has 2 teenage children and we are all extremely worried. Please ...Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
