Okay I won't worry about it. Does the skull have bones that expand when the pressure inside the brain builds?
And regarding the headaches, I have seen my pediatrician who was not worried. He wants to treat my asthma (previously uncontrolled) which is pretty bad when combined with my allergies and see if the headaches remain.
That is what I suspected.
And yeah the allergies and asthma combined can wreak havoc. I never noticed how bad my asthma was until I starting to realize how often I find it difficult to really get a good breath.
I believe it may be migranes as well. Initially for about a week the headaches were almost certainly "tension-like" and were a constant dull pain that began in the afternoon. Then a week later they turned to more acute pains on either side of the head, and now they're almost gone.
Yes, as the headaches became more unilateral I began to suspect some kind of mild migraine (advil at that point seemed to help less) possibly triggered by the asthma or allergies.
Thank you for your help, I appreciate it.
