Pressure on top left side of head, and frequent headaches

Ive always been prone to tension headaches, but seem to be getting them a lot more in the last 2 weeks...yesterday i had a severe headached all day from when i woke up, and today i have this weird pressure on the top left side of my head....sort of like someone is pressing there with their thumb, but its not painful. My neck seems to be stiff too.

A couple of weeks ago i had a really bad cold and bronchitis, so am wondering if its something to do with sinus? Im a little worried, as ive never felt this pressing before, and nothing I do seems to make it go away.

Any ideas? Thanks for your help!

When was your last eye exam?

Hi there, its posible it could be a sinus problem. You have a vein up there that may be affected by a cold or infection so i would get it checked out if doesen't go away. Hope this info helps! RAndy
