Advice & Tips: unexpected dizziness, head pressure changed but head pain increased dramatically. Took medication for three weeks but started having unusual head pains and spikes. I was unable to get up in the mornings and morphine didn't even help. Concerned about migraine strokes I slowly removed myself back off of this medication, pressure and pain returned to a tolerable level for the moment.
