Pressure in Head after eating
I have pressure in head from a long time. I get these pressures when I eat food, most of the times 2 hours approx. after the meal in the afternoon. My stomach's bloat and once gas is passed from my anus, its starts fading away and I can see some relief. Earlier It was the whole head, now mostly on right side and sometime in the left as well. I went multiple doctors including psychiatry, Gastro, Endocrinologist etc. I dont have any stomach problems, stools are OK. But passing of gas is more. The main worry is pressure in the head which fades once I have a bowel movement or gas is passed from anus. Can anyone help me please?

The following steps may help: - Don't skip meals, you may not feel like eating but in such conditions you should have the reduced amount in frequent intervals(i.e. 3 square meals broken down to 5 or 6 as you can tolerate) and slowly increase as you get better. - Reduce/ Avoid spicy,fried, fatty, junk and oily food - Avoid/ Limit drinking coffee, tea and carbonated drinks to once a day - Exercise regularly (30-45mins a day and maintain a healthy weight as per your BMI) - Increase daily intake of water to 3 liters - Avoid/Stop smoking and drinking - Reduce stress through methods such as yoga/meditation.
