Hello doctor,

I am 26 years old and suffering from pain and heaviness behind my head. The pain aggravates when I sit and stand and stops when I sleep. Why so?

Kindly help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query.

I understand your concern. You have orthostatic hypotension. The other possible causes include anemia and migraine. I suggest you to follow a few instructions mentioned below.

  1. Take small frequent salty meals.
  2. Avoid drinking alcohol.
  3. Drink four glasses of water in the morning.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
