Try a neti pot, hot steam, warm compresses, naproxen ...Read more

Can you give me advice with head pressure that doesn't seem to go away?

Often due to stress: Head "pressure" often is most often due to stress-tension-anxiety. Especially if you've had similar symptoms in the past when anxious or stressed. If the pressure is of recent onset, unrelated to stress, and located in sinus areas of forehead or cheeks it may be a sinus condition.

If non of the above apply then the patient needs a neurological evaluation.
