Head pressure / ear pressure


Can anyone give me advice on this, for the past 2 months I’ve had a persistent pressure in my forehead one side right side. Sometimes through the day my ear feels like it’s going to explode.

I did have an ear infection in March but I’ve been told my ear is fine. And I did have MRI scan and had minor sinus but on CT scan sinus was clear recently.

Is this anxiety? I constantly worry about this 24/7 as it’s always there sometimes it’s not as bad as others.

Sounds like Scm muscle strain.


Allergies could be clogging up you eustachian tube, try a sinus rinse by neil med and possibly some flonase. It could also be your neck muscles and tendons, they go from your lower back all the way up around your head to your eyes and easily tighten up with anxiety.

Anxiety doesn't show up on MRIs and CT scans. Everything else does. You've had an MRI scan and a CT scan and nothing showed up. Therefore it's anxiety.
