I started taking some new medications,and every day now, since, The top portion of my head feels like someone has there palms on each side of my temples and are squeezing my head, except they don't let go.. I say its a headache, but it does not produce real pain but a weird pressure just on the top of my cranium! LOL..like the thickness of my forehead all the way around and in the middle also.I have started two new medications and have never had this feeling before.. so wondered if a medication could do that?
A tension headache may cause you to experience a dull, achy pain or sensation of tightness in your forehead or at the sides and back of your head. Many people liken the feeling to having a tight band of pressure encircling their heads.Triggers and aggravatorsThere are many possible triggers of tension headache. You may have no identifiable or consistent trigger, or have several obvious ones. Potential triggers include:Stress Depression and anxiety Lack of sleep or changes in sleep routine Skipping meals Poor posture Working in awkward positions or holding one position for a long time Lack of physical activity Occasionally, hormonal changes related to menstruation, pregnancy, menopause or hormone use Medications used for other conditions, such as depression or high blood pressure
I also have a problem with depression... and thought it blood pressure at one point but it wasn't so I was thinking medication... do you think it could be the antidepressant itself?
Seen this sort of thing?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tyramine
Karen,QuoteI also have a problem with depression... and thought it blood pressure at one point but it wasn't so I was thinking medication... do you think it could be the antidepressant itself?I already have the problem with depression have had for a long time... I will tell the doctor and see if that is a possibility with my treatment.. possibly .. I have had others that have worse effects.., feeling so dopey and blah that I just did not care.. Hangover like symptoms I hate those and this cellexa seems much less harsh to me..I will talk with her and see!No Karen I dont think it is medication, it was this horrile band that made me see a doctor who diagnosed me correctly as a depressive. The correct antidepression medication should take this awful feeling away.Alan
