Ouch! Don't touch my head!

I'm 17 years old, for the past few weeks I've been getting a really annoying pain in my head, everyday, from when i wake up to when i go to sleep, it feels like my brain is swelling and pushing against my skull, it hurts to touch and loud noises hurt my ears, the light doesn't affect me so i ruled out migraines, i'm quite concerned as i haven't whacked my head for months and months, so yes i'm concerned.

did you have some freak diarrhea preceding these symptoms?

I wouldn't rule out the possibility of migraine's just yet because even loud noises is a symptom that you may have them.

I would recommend that you have an MRI or CAT scan done to determine what might be going on inside your head. My guess is that you may have swelling going on inside your skull and that may be what is causing the feelings of pressure.

sorry to hear that... not sure if your problem is the same but my daughters' friend was going through something like you and in the end it was her birth control pills.... if you are taking any..you should mention this to your doctor. Hope this helps
