Causes of Chronic Headache or Pressure in Head

Addressing chronic headaches
Question on healing:
I have undiagnosed chronic pressure/fullness in forehead, kind of dull feeling for the past 12 years, any ideas how this can be treated and alleviated?
Healing Facilitation Response:
Without seeing you or knowing more, I would not have much to go on from your description. I am not a doctor and cannot diagnose or prescribe. Just off the top of my head, I would rule out systemic candida albicans or heavy metal poisoning. If you have mercury fillings, they may be leaking heavy metals into your system. Candida infection can cause the dull-headed feeling, too.
However, stress-related mental disorders may cause chronic headaches, as may more serious situations like high blood pressure, glaucoma or other eye problems, brain tumors, etc…
A subluxation of the spine can also be a factor. If you look back at the time when this chronic headache pattern emerged, and there is a subsequent injury, fall or car accident that involved the spine or neck, then seeing a specialist who can determine if you have a pinched nerve or some other type of subluxation. Personally, I had this feeling of constant pressure at the base of my skull for years and what finally relieved it was a process called AtlasProfilax. This process removes subluxation of the atlas (the top vertebrate at base of the skull) and allows the atlas to move back into it’s natural position.
It was one of the best things I ever did for myself but I can’t know if it would help you so I’d suggest getting more information and learning more about AtlasProfilax, a treatment I had done myself because of persistent, longterm chronic headaches. You’ll find my feedback after having the atlasprofilax adjustment, as well as feedback from another lady who also had the experience.
If you suspect heavy metal poisoning (from metal fillings or if you have worked in fumes, chemicals, etc…), then I’d look at Cilantro Extract with a binder like organic apple pectin, in addition to doing an internal cleanse. Detoxing heavy metal poisoning from mercury amalgams
Sometimes, chronic headaches are a symptom of deep infection in a tooth. Have your dentist evaluate the condition of existing fillings and find out if there is any sign of infection in any of your teeth. One person I counseled had infection so deep that it was into the bone and it was really affecting his quality of life in a great many ways. Undiagnosed infection in teeth or mouth bones could conceivably cause chronic headaches too so I’d rule it out.
Additionally, more serious medical conditions such as brain tumor, glaucoma, pre-stroke conditions, etc. should be ruled out.
