Does anyone else have chronic head pressure? It's just like it sounds, and it never goes away.

I've had it for 6 years, every day, and can take it no longer.

Any ideas?

  • You should google "GCA" . I had that.the constant pressure in my head and eyebrows drove me crazy. I was put on prednisone for 2 years and now am fine.Prednisone is one of the markers. If is works it probably is GCA.

If is works it probably is GCA. GCA is Giant Cell Arteritis, right? I'm 28 years old so I think it's unlikely. In any case, my SED rate was tested and came normal, I think that's the major indicator for GCA. Correct?
