    Headache comes and goes 3 weeks now, feels like pressure, very worried.

    Long story short.

    Been getting headaches mostly "ice pick" kind for three weeks but also this feeling of fullness in my head and back of head. Sometimes I dont feel it at all. My eyes can get blurry but I don't know if its my contacts or this situation I am in. Also, when bending over seems to be increased pressure. Finally decided to contact Dr, just finished blood work today, MRI tomorrow.

    So I googled.... and now I swear I have intercranial pressure, which sounds like bad news all around. I do have health anxiety, so these types of things really mess me up bad.

    I guess I'm posting to see if anyone has experienced something similar and I guess maybe some comforting thoughts.

    Thank you all.

    Hi
    I have intercranial hypotension due toa bad basal skull fracture years ago
    (the cause of it I won’t go into)these headaches are debilitating and can knock you for days,when I get them I have to sleep with extra pillows can’t lie flat.For relief I have aLumber puncture to relieve the pressure it helps a lot.
    You should get your eyes checked too get your optic nerves checked.
    I hope everything will be ok for you and your HA you can get under control AND don’t Dr Google he will feed you.
    Let me know,from a sufferer.

    Thank you for your response. I am trying my best to beat the anxiety.

    I got the results of the MRI back, but I'm really confused as the results only spoke of the pituitary gland and nothing else. It was an all clear. I think it was because of my hormones so my doc put it in for pituitary but I need it for the headaches. I wonder if they check the whole head or only the pituitary? Sigh...
