When I bend over to pull weeds I get a very painful headache and pressure in my head. The pain persists sometimes for over an hour. The worst pain is on both sides of my head and I get pain in my ears too. I also get dizzy with minor vision changes; usually goes away in a few minutes. Sometimes my hearing is affected and it feels like there's cotton in my ears. I occasionally have tinnitus but it is not always associated with bending over; this seems quite random. This has been happening over the last year. No new medications or really any changes except I had a child last year. I don't smoke or use drugs. I drink occasionally but nothing different than normal. I am otherwise a relatively healthy female. I am 27; 140 lbs; 5'9''. Although I have been diagnosed with compound homozygous MTHFR.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. It is likely tension type headache and needs supportive and symptomatic relief. Take some tylenol and some anxiolytics and see if it helps.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
