for some reason it feels like my head is going to explode (just feels like pressure) whenever i bend down or tighten my belt. this started months ago and have other head related issues when exercising (working out, cardio, etc) s causing the veins in my head to "throb and pulsate" whenever i do any strenuous activity. i saw a doc a few months ago who ordered several tests (mri, blood work, physical, etc) which was all normal suggesting i am perfectly healthy.
any thoughts on why this is?
-saw doc a few months ago who ran several tests (mri, blood work, physical, etc)
-eat well and stay well hydrated (no significant changes to my diet or known food allergies)
-veins in head 'throb' when running or lifting (bad enough where i cant do either)
-head feels its going to explode when i bend down or wear clothes that isn't loose
any thoughts on what is causing this?

honestly, I'm having the same problem. I feel like every time I bend over, I get a headache. I asked my doctor and he said it was probably sinuses. My dad also had the same problem, but he had to get some nose surgery. The cartilage in his nose was slowly moving out of place or something like that. But yeah, I want to actually go talk to a doctor about my nose and see if I'm in need of that same surgery.

A major problem I have is not being able to do anything strenuous without my head throbbing. The doctor who ran the tests says that my issues are likely the result of stress or tension of the body. Just tonight I noticed just how much pain I get whenever bending down. For months I have had issues with wearing clothes that isn't loose around the waist, for whatever reason any tightness in the area translates into a certain "fullness" in the head.
I haven't been able to exercise for 6+ months at this point due to odd head pain which started randomly once some neck pain began. Needless to say, I have visited a chiropractor, massage therapist, and physical therapist who suggest I have "areas that need attention" but nothing significant enough to cause headaches of my degree.
Thanks for the reply and hopefully your issue gets resolved without surgery.
