headaches

Hello, I am concerned because 4 weeks ago I had a concussion from college hockey. We had base line test done prior to the season and these were all fine. There was no change in memory, reflexes, or balance. I was evaluated by three doctors who all said I was fine. The symptoms disappeared after 2 weeks but two days after tension headaches started to appear on the left side of head (where I was hit). They scheduled a CT scan. The results have not come back but its been two weeks so obviously nothing serious came up. This is a weird feeling. Like a tightness/pressure the presents either on the left side or the back of my head. I can feel my heartbeat sometimes there which is really annoying while I sleep. I cant drink alcohol because after one beer the headaches come back. The doctor has prescribed sleeping pills and muscle relaxants. These do work. The funny thing is that when I wake up the pressure/tightness is completely gone. I find that it builds up over the course of the day. Any help/suggestions would be great. I am a healthy 21 year old male. I do have a history of anxiety but this pressure/tightness just wont stop. Thanks.

I'm glad I'm not alone then, come to think of it, it's pretty awkward situation to be in. Cause right now I'm suffering from bad headaches in the same places as yours, though it started at the back first and couldnt sleep at night either. I was head banging. not much probz about 10sec? But I didn't have a black out or some kinda of concussion though I've been getting headaches straight after, off to the docs so I suggest you go to.
Best of luck!
