I’m not sure either, whether that pressure is a ‘migraine’ or not. It’s common enough symptom though.
. I always say I don’t get migraine headaches unless that is one and of course some people do believe MAV is really just a migraine that started and never got around to stopping. I don’t know. Do be vety careful with driving. In UK you must advise DVLA and your insurers if any condition which could affect driving ability and dizziness/vertigo is one such condition. You may not be insured otherwise. Any trigger can increase head pressure, it’s a symptom. Foods will do it, Salt, and ham/bacon will for me. That I’m sure about but probably there are others. I’ve only been trying diet and caffeine restriction since October and low/no caffeine does seem to help with head pressure, One non-food related thing that also helps is not putting even more pressure on your head, by cleaning kneeling down, by bending forwards to pick up rgings off the floor. Looking forwards and down at tablet etc, anything like that, avoid it,
I try to do John Hopkins but I haven’t dropped dairy. Because of other health issues I must have calcium in abundance so I take milk, butter and factory-made Cheddar cheese. For breakfast I have cereal. Porridge mostly with milk. I find filling sandwiches a problem and don’t know what I would do without cheese, Helen
