For a long time I still suffer from an enormous pressure above my nose.
The strangest of all, always in the living room. From that moment I go out, work in busy catering businesses, etc. ... I have no more trouble. Already a number of doctors visited each scan performed with the result that they find nothing. I feel that the problem is in the living room. An allergy or something decent in stead. It is very frustrating that I do not know what it is, ventilation and light enough so I can not lie. And I do not smoke.
Eventually you committed to the things to stabbing, the PC, wireless internet, floor, seats and so on ...etc

i'm sorry for my bad english


regards

Definitely an allergy to something in that room. You could have allergy testing to see what you are allergic to and then try to find that substance in the living room. However, it may be an odd item that the tests don't cover.

What do you do when you are in the living room that you don't do anywhere else? Read? Watch TV? If you just go into that room and sit down and do nothing do you get the headache? If so, I'd go with Southern Belle and say there's something environmental in that room that is setting you off.

Do you have carpet in the living room, could be a problem under there. Perhaps if the house is on a raised foundation, something underneath the room going on. Can you crawl under the house? Any mold problems? Was the room recently painted, carpeted, new flooring? Do you have any common walls with another house/tenant? Any odors, stains? Did you bring anything different or new into the house recently?

Is the house a new or fairly new construction? It could be the home was constructed using Chinese drywall. You may want to Google it and see if what you're experiencing are the symptoms numerous people have reported as having because this is in their homes. Problem is, if you have your home tested for the stuff and you know you have it, you have to disclose it if you ever attempt to sell your home. In which case, your home may sit on the market for a very long time.

What kind of lighting is in your living room? Spiral CFLs and tube type flurorescents can cause headaches because they flicker at a frequency that you are not conscious of, but your eyes react to. Make sure all the lights in your living room are old-fashioned round light bulbs, and see of that makes a difference.

There might also be a sound source that you can hear in the living room, such as a ventilation fan or some industrial noise from outside the house. They can be at a sound frequency that you don't consciously notice, but are causing your body to set up a harmonic with it, creating stress.

Maybe your favorite chair in that room is not conforming well with your posture, and putting skeletel stress on your back or, especially, your neck. Does it help to sit in a different chair?

So far still the same situation

I visited over 10 doctors and I did lots of testing, scanning, no one can find the cause..The strangest of all is that I am sometimes a few weeks not bother me, then comes the headache again when I'm in the living room

maybe it is psychological problem

In my bathroom and bedroom I've never had problems with headache, and thats in the same construction/building. And the rooms are in the same paint.

I have daytime and evening problems, even if no lights are on

It may be your sofa--or chair--that's making you ill. A recent study from Duke University found some living room furniture outputs toxic chemicals:

Do you have a gas space heater or gas stove in or near the living room? If your living room is separate from the rest of your house and you have a gas heater in there, it could be carbon monoxide poisoning. This is an EMERGENCY and can be fatal!

Black mold buildup can make you pretty ill, even if you aren't allergic to mold.

It's said that virtually all buildings are going to have mold buildup in one vicinity or another, but if the mold is growing, say, under your carpet, then the spores can be disrupted and dispersed through the air. Headaches are pretty common symptoms of over-exposure to a moldy environment, or so I've been told.

Just a thought...
