You describe Chronic Daily Headaches, which could be secondary to migraines. The best way to confirm increased intracranial pressure is via a spinal tap. Ask your neurologist whether this should be done. Your normal weight does NOT exclude possible Pseudotumor Cerebri. Migraine can be controlled by the use of CGRP class drugs, and ask your neurologist about this approach.
