Does this make any sense? Wearing a tight hat soothes my head pain.

I know, I couldn't make this stuff up if I wanted to. For about a year and a half now I have been to every doctor known to mankind for constant headaches (Across my brow), and a "head achy" feeling that flows from the top of my left temple, all the way down to my lower Jaw. The inside of my left cheek feels swollen, and I get muscle spasms right above my left ear (In the tempomandibular area).

Anyways, I find that when my head ache is getting unbearable and I can't concentrate, etc... If I wear a tight fitting hat or hoodie, it seems to help a bit to soothe the pain (Across my brow). Does anyone else get the same response from wearing a tight hat or hoodie? Could it be the warmth or pressure the hat/hoodie creates that helps???

So far I have been diagnosed with so much crap it is not even funny (TMJ, Sinisitis). All I know is I can't get a definate diagnosis or a cure, just tons of meds and tons of pain / suffering. I can no longer function normally as I can't stand noisy or crowded places anymore. Even going to a restaurant has become a mission. The lights and the noise drives me insane.

Anyways I just wanted to know if anyone gets some relief from the hat thing. Good luck to the rest of you. No one complains for no reason, this much I have learned.
