AVM/ brain pressure: If you have an AVM you should be seen by a neurosurgeon . . Regarding the head pressure - AVM can cause pressure/pain as well and intracranial pressure may be elevated. Would follow up with neurosurgeon. https://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/patient-caregiver-education/fact-sheets/arteriovenous-malformation-fact-sheet
