VA and Keesler has giving me a referal because the do not have a nueurologist. I have try-care,and medicare.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes, however VA, DR Seath has retired, And my Keesler MD has deployed over sea's and will not return until June.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

2 heart surguries

Neurologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Well not necessarily . Simple uncomplicated headache , sinus infection , viral illness / common cold , nasal stuffiness ,sinus infection , ear ,nose infections, visual strain all can result in pressure feeling in head.

However if the headache / dizziness comes with or worsens with sneezing , coughing , straining then it could be an indicator of elevated pressure in brain due to something sinister like a tumour.

Still it needs thorough history and examination before jumping to any such conclusions .

Hope it answered your query
