A 36-year-old female asked:

Can tension headaches be more of just head pressure and not pain?

Yes: These are common and while not as severe as migraines, can have lesser known aggravating symptoms. I often see patients that have both migraines and tension type headaches. If there are any changes in symptoms, please go get yourself checked out.
