Strange pressure that feels like a circle on the right side of the head

I have been having this strange pressure on the right side of my head in the middle of the right side
and normally happens when I am straining when having a bowel movement
it has happened like this
and I have had a variation of this that was like a sharp pain that lasted for 2 s and then went away and became a dull pain and will eventually go away
today I had that pressure
is it cause for concern or is it normal
I am also withdrawing from a ssri
lexapro I am whining off really slow
just wanted to let that in for a better understanding of my situation
I am only asking this here because I don't win a do unnecessary exams.

  1. Hi Miketheprogg,

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at!

    I wish I could tell you exactly what's going on, but only a qualified doctor can do that. The thing is when we have new and/or different symptoms or our patterns change, it's always a good idea to let the doctor know so he can rule out anything more serious. If you haven't had a chance to do that, I would encourage you to do so.

    Please let us know how you make out,
