Need more info: intracranial hypertension headache can be of pressure quality with vision changes, but to state with more certainty that it's this type of headache need more clinical history such as headache worsening during sneezing, straining, laying down and bending down and better with being upright, optic discs exam showing papilledema, loss of peripheral vision fields, LP with high opening pressure etc
