In brief: High brain pressure

The characteristic symptoms of increased pressure within the skull are headaches that get worse at night and/or wakes up the patient from sleep.
Often there is vomiting associated. Headaches also get worse with sneezing, coughing and bearing down. Some patients may only have vomiting. A heartache that wakes up the patient early in the morning and is followed by vomiting is worrisome.
