Answer to your Health Question

Question: On occasion when I get out of my car or get up from sitting down I get a feeling of pressure in my head around my ears. Kinda like a head rush but almost a tightness. I also have been getting blood shot eyes when i'm working long hours. Naomi

Answer: Dear Naomi,

Bloodshot eyes can be caused by the following:

- Extremely dry air
- Sun exposure
- Dust
- Straining of the eyes
- Eye infections (conjunctivitis)
- Cold/allergies
- Glaucoma

These conditons are common cause for red eyes but do not tend to be associated with ear or head problems.

The pressure feeling you have in your head when getting up may be caused by an ear problem. In order to diagnose the problem it would be necessary for a doctor to perform an exam.
