Terrifying head pressure

Im hoping someone can help me! Off and on I've been getting intense headaches that are usually not pain but intense pressure throughout my head. At times they will surge. I can not sleep because of this sensation . I'm typing his at 4 am have not slept yet I want to sleep so bad but when I do my head will get another intense pressure surge. It feels warm at times too. I also have palpitations all day and night with this. What causes this? I feel like my head is going to pop!
When it first started 6 wks ago I had a ct and MRI of brain. Everything looked perfect. I've also been to 3 cardiologist with all normal
Findings. However I'm miserable living this way. Btw I have a ton more sypmts going on but was t sure if I should those in headache forum.

Re: Terrifying head pressure

What are your other symptoms? I just posted about trying a low dose aspiring regimen and magnesium, which in studies shows some effectiveness for cluster and migraine headaches. I am trying this and will report back. I figure it is less harmful than powerful drugs docs like to prescribe. So far I have been headache free for 10 days.

Re: Terrifying head pressure

Does it feel like the muscles that attach to your head are having spasms? Like your head is being squeezed really hard? I get this feeling from muscle spasms... and it's definitely MUCH more than a tension headache. I try to describe it as major pressure that can cause pain, not just a headache.
