Common is common: If they did a neurological exam, and it was normal, in your age group it is extremely unlikely that there is a tumor in there causing your discomfort (...Which I am sure is what you are worried about...).

For 10 days I've had headaches and pressure on the right side of my head. I don't have any neurological symptoms to my knowledge. Is it a brain tum?

Odds are no.: Headaches are very very common. Brain tumors are very very uncommon. So, if you have a headache the odds are that a brain tumor is not causing the headache. However, headaches are one of the most common presenting symptoms of brain tumor. Therefore, if you have a brain tumor, the odds are that you will have a headache. ...Read more

I've had ongoing pressure and pain on the right side of my head, getting progressively worse. Scan is negative. I'm very scared. Tylenol (acetaminophen) doesn't help.

Depends: You really should discuss with your doctor as chronic headaches have many causes. They need to address blood pressure and other issues. If a ct scan is negative then it is unlikely that it is something you should be scared about, but you need to address it. ...Read more

Im having blunt pressure pain on the right side & back of my head. It only happens when I cough, etc.. Also have sinus drainage. is this neurological?

No way to tell: without a full evaluation. If you do have sinus problems this could explain it all. But you have several risk factors (BP, CHOL, CKD, Immune Suppression). You really should be examined in person for this. Good luck! ...Read more

Many caused: There are many possible causes of those symptoms, and it is very difficult to give further advice or guidance without a more thorough examination and evaluation.

Clenching: If you find that you are clenching throughout the hours you are awake try to break the habit by placing your tongue on the roof of your mouth half an inch behind your teeth and press with your tongue. This position can relax the muscles you use to clench. Unfortunately, this only works during hours you are awake. Try a night guard for bedtime. ...Read more

I've been having pain and discomfort in my right ear and my right side of my head feels with pressure and hurts when I bend down to reach for things.

Eustachian problem: The eustachian tube's purpose is to allow air to pass freely between the throat and the middle ear. When this tube gets blocked by a cold virus or allergy, then air can't get into the ear and pressure or even pain results. In kids this often lead to infection but that's much less common in adults. Only time will make this better. If not improved in 2-4 weeks, or if pain is severe, see a doctor ...Read more
