Dr. Mark C. Loury answered:

Pressure inside head and coughing or sneezing is very painful but not a headache?

Several causes

Open-uri20130406-615-1l1i2f7
Pressure is either from transient blood pressure increases during the cough causing swelling of the sinus linings or temporary distension of the veins inside the skull which are very sensitive (cough headache). May also have sinus inflammation which can cause head discomfort that can worsen with cough. If the pressure persists after the cough has gone, see MD

You may be experiencing an ophthalmic migraine. If it is new, however, you should see your primary care doctor to make sure nothing more serious is occurring.

I always get these painful headaches after being in the sun for a long time or by the sun hitting my head for 10-15 minutes. Pain lasts the whole day.

Migraine

Pain
All headaches are provoked by triggers, and not unusual for migraines to be set off by bright sunshine, amongst many potential triggers. You might find some benefit from sunglasses or a visor, but perhaps a preventative prescription medicine or OTC product might be even more successful.

Changes in vision, new onset of new symptoms all suggest a need fora fast evaluation. If these are more chronic, then see a neurologist. Severe pain should NOT be ignored.

I have a nerve pain headache in the back of my head, on theleft side but it is not horribly painful. I had a CT scan a weekago and it was clean. I have a history of syrinx. I have anappointment with the neurologist tomorrow. What can causethis?

Occipital neuralgia

Head
You may have occipital neuralgia. Its hard to tell without more history and physical exam, but sharp shooting pains starting at the base of your skull that radiates up one side of your head can certainly be related to that. However, with the syrinx history I am certainly glad you are seeing your neurologist just to be safe. diagnostic nerve block can tell you if it's occipital neuralgia.Good luck!
