I have seen that a similar question has been asked before many years ago but with no solution and answer that would provide relief.
I have been practicing meditation for over a year and then severe pressure occurred and it remains even though I do not meditate for months.Unfortunately I started with this practice quite unprepared using internet as my teacher which I see now has been great mistake.
It is like having air trapped inside my skull.
I desperately seek for solution I did MRI and various medical checks but non doctor could say what it is. I used so many medications, doctors changed several types of anti anxiety pills .
I tried also various alternative medicine such as craniosacral therapy, massages, I currently doing acupuncture . I started with qigong classes recently . I am doing grounding activities on daily basis such as gym exercises but still it doesn't help
Please help, this is destroying my life.
Has anyone had similar experience and how did you managed to get over it.
Thank you so much for showing interest in my problem,
EDIT: Thank you for clarifying your question for us! I have a better picture of your problems, and can offer a few ideas that might help you resolve this awful dilemma. I will leave my original answer as a future reference; what I am posting now should help you.
There are three chakras in the head: the throat chakra (fifth); the third eye chakra; and the crown chakra. Any or all of these could have been affected by your foray into meditation. When these energy centers become blocked, some very real physical symptoms will manifest, including the "pressure" you describe. I have written about all the chakras here on IQ: link text (If you read the comments in this question, they go into problems with unbalanced chakras); (Just use the search engine here for more good stuff about chakras). I have been a Reiki Healer for years, as has my husband, and there is nothing like having your chakras balanced by a healer! This would be the very first step I would advise you to take: get thee to a Reiki Master!
Secondly, (I am going to take a intuitive leap here), I am guessing that you blasted yourself into meditation. There could be two effects as a result of this: either you brought energy up into your head, you chakras shut tight, and all your energy (kundalini especially) got stuck; or, you freaked out your poor head chakras, causing them to get stuck open, which is really quite distressing. Open and unprotected chakras are vulnerable to any and all energy floating around out there. Either way, you would feel pretty lousy until you get re-balanced by a healer.
Something that I would recommend you do immediately: get grounded. You need to pull energy out of your head, and back into your body. It is supposed to flow! Look up "grounding" here on IQ. I would say "google it", but maybe you should stay away from doing this! (lol!) Get outside and walk barefooted. Get into nature. Plant some flowers. Get to a body of water, and just float. All of these activities will help. Even mowing your lawn will help (if you have one).
These thoughts are just the beginning. Feel free to keep me posted, and to ask further questions.
ORIGINAL ANSWER BELOW:
There are so many variables that could have come into play here that it makes it really hard to figure out what might be going on with you.
1.) Is it a coincidence that this started with meditation? Could this be a purely physical trouble that started at the same time as your meditating? If so, it appears to have gone on so long that one would think doctors would have figured it out by now... But they have not. So. Is this is a problem that was triggered by the meditation, and is more of spiritual, or metaphysical trouble? Lots of initial questions. They are all things I would ask you about before I could move towards an answer. Let's assume it is not directly physical (even though this is causing a physical problem)....
2.) I would ask you what you did exactly in starting meditation. What practices did you follow? What did you experience? Did it feel pleasant or did it evolve into something you could not handle? Did you remember something while meditating that frightened you? All of these outcomes could lead to chronic head pain if you triggered something in your mind that has led to this head "pressure"....
3.) Are you seeing that this problem is very complicated? Many things could have gone "wrong". But in the end, you just want to be rid of this pain. But it has gone on so long that I wonder if you need to seek a true spiritual healer for this. Short of that, look at all the events that led you to try meditating. What was going on in your life? Did something precipitate your desire to find some peace?
As a healer, I would ask you all of the above questions and more. I cannot really help more unless I have more data to work with- and perhaps these questions can lead you to finding a solution. You might find yourself editing your question so that we can get a clearer picture of what might be going on with you.
I've had a block in my head that didn't seem to let go, no matter what I tried.
What seems to be happening is that through meditation you unleashed a large amount of energy that for some reason your body is not allowing to flow freely so it creates great tension in your head. I will paste here a method that has helped my body feel at ease as it allowed this extra energy in. Give special attention to the 3rd part, start acting in a way that represents your preferred reality, your body will start relaxing and allowing more as you do:
3 Phases for receiving the "version" of reality you prefer:
Get excited & passionate about it! How would you feel if you had it now? Feel that now! Plug into your vision with all your emotions & all your senses, as if you had it now! Involve all your senses - imagine smelling it, touching it, tasting it, etc. Feel it ==> Become an efficient Emotional Antenna to receive this "version" of reality.
Physical action. Do it! To ground the experience. Do actions that most closely mimic the actions you "see" yourself doing in your vision. Gather and use whatever props mimic that scenario, and do a "dry run". Doing this "make believe" physical action trains the body consciousness. This makes it "real for you now", so the universe then delivers it to you. NOTE: This physical action does not directly cause this desired reality to manifest. Instead, this physical action creates a more precise vibration in yourself, making you a better antenna to receive it, by you becoming more aligned to the same vibration. The reality you desire already exists. You do not have to create it. You only have to receive it. Be it ==> Become an efficient Physical Antenna to receive this "version" of reality.
In other words,
Let me know how it goes :)

Meditation, like everything, is made up of pure energy. That energy has to go somewhere. So when you meditate, perhaps a question to ask is - what are you doing with the thoughts, feelings and emotions that may 'build-up' inside of your head?
Because if negative they need to be released/let go/exorcised/dispersed. If positive then they will manifest themselves as laughter, the urge to eat (to replace the fuel spent through the spiritual and mental energy or effort it's taken you to meditate) OR you might want to pop out of the house OR dance (smiles).
Whichever it is, energy always has to keep moving ~ has to flow; if it doesn't then it can become stuck (and with your case, it's 'stuck' in your head causing pressures or headaches). So perhaps try this when you next meditate:

Hi Filip, i used to have these kind of pressure in my head too and still sometimes do, but i learned how to eliminate them in seconds.
while meditating, if doing correctly (which obviosly you did according to your discription), we go into a different state of mind/ another vibration and start to get "downloads" from our higher self. like channaling. it's just that some of us are aware of this process more then others and actualy able to listen and understand the download. the thing thats really matter is'nt the state we are while meditating but the state OUT of meditation. our normal state. see, if there's a huge gap beetween your new knowledge and your current vibration it means you are NOT READY FOR WHAT YOU HAVE (the knowledge). and it creat conflicts and big resistance in your sistem. i believe its because the transition between states of being was to fast.
also spirits downloading knowledge when you ask them and does not consider our phisical pain.
so what i do in this situation (it will sound weird but it helps):
ask from your higrself /spirit to stop the downlowding.
tell them that they are hurting you and to be more gentle.
tell them that you prefer to not know but feel healthy.
just say what you feel.
be assertive and really mean it.
when i do it head pressure stop emidietly.
also - try to do what you love, drink lots of water and keep yourself in high vibes, and try grounding - sit under a tree, walk in nature etc.
