What is the best treatment for tightness in the head?

My head is tight and hurting. I need suggestions on how to make it stop.

A feeling of pressure in the head could be caused by internal or external elements. Braiding or banding hair too tightly can cause pressure on the scalp. High blood pressure can make your head feel like it is about to explode. A disease called "pseudotumor" causes a similar feeling. See your doctor if the problem continues.

If your head feels tight, it is probably from stress, the muscles in the back of your neck and shoulder tighten up and pulls on your scalp. Calm down, relax, try yoga, get a neck and shoulder massage or see you doctor for a mild anti-depressant.

I'm unsure of whether you mean headache or actual pressure. If you have a headache the best advice I could give would be to take an Asprin with a glass of water and then take a nap. If you have pressure in your head I would go to the hospital.
