This question is for my husband. Lately he is complaining of pressure and pain in the back of his head. I am a little be concern because last year he had three stents implemented on his heart, and he takes a lot of prescribed medicine due to this surgery. Should I take him to the doctor? Can this be serious? He is only 42 years old.

I am hypoglycemic, and before I was diagnosed and eating improperly, I had horrible pressure around my head. I felt like someone was resting books on top of my skull. Perhaps he should have a glucose tolerance test done for what it's worth. And have him stay hydrated!
