    Throbbing behind the right eye
    Amy_155 posted:
    I started Tuesday off with a bad headache and by the end of the day the headache had eased off but I continued to have a throbbing behind the right eye and it was extremely painful when I walked or bent over to pick up something. This pain still continues three days later. Any advice as to what it might be??

    It could be cluster headaches. Have you told your dr about it?
    Timothy Collins, MD responded:
    Pain behind the eye can be part of migraine, but there are other problems that can cause this. Sometime a sinus infection causes pain like this. There are a few problems with the eye that cause this too---if you are having any vision problems at all you should see an Ophthalmologist about it.
