  13. I am having a hard time figuring out what kind of headache I am having. They usually hurt in my forehead, on top of my head and the back of my head. Often times my eyes and ears hurt as well. I can feel it in the apple of my cheeks and my ears ring. Sometimes I see gray floaters and it is hard to wear my glasses or focus too much with my eyes. I have been suffering with these headaches since 2005 and they have gotten steadily worse. My pain is not pulsating that I can tell but is persistent and often gets worse as the day goes on. Nothing seems to help the bad ones (meaning OTC pain meds). I also have coronary artery disease and mild asthma. These conditions limit my treatment options. If you can help me at all it would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!!!

  18. Ravi Bansal says:

    Dear Sir,
    Good Morning

    My name Ravi Bansal ( Age 34, Weight 60 kg, Non Alcoholic, B.P. 120/80 )

    I feel pressing weight and heaviness on the top and back of my head. That turns my head into stooped position to get some relief but long stooping triggers stress, mild pain in nape and shoulder blades. This results that head would get fall down to earth. During stepping on upstairs, more pressing weight is felt on head. Weight feeling causes Mind to get irritatable.

    Sometimes , I have to hold chin by hand to put head in good position during sitting and holding head by one hand during standing and walking. This disturbs my physical coordination while talking to someone.

    Soreness with mild pain and spasm in nerves under scalp occur constantly. It worsened by humidity and better by little cold open air with heat, hard pressure, lying down, sleepiNg. During sleeping and lying down weight feeling is reduced to 5 % within first 10 -20 minutes .

    I do not take any allopathic pain killers . Taking five phos 6x and 4 tablets 3 times containing Bryonia 30ch from March 2018 which shows minor irregular reliefl. Problem persists since more than one year.

    Please suggest the medicines
