    Eyebrow/browbone/head pain. Worried. :(

    For the past few weeks I've been having pain in my eyebrow area, right above the eyebrows in my forehead and below the browbone. It doesn't really hurt much on its own except for a couple twinge pains here and there, but it's when I press, rub or massage the area I feel the most pain. I can also feel it a bit in/behind my eyes specifically the left and in the corners by my nose, I can feel the pain sometimes radiate to what feels like my cheekbones and teeth. I was just treated for a sinus infection with Zithromax 2 weeks ago but I don't feel any different whatsoever and the pain is still there. I might have some slight congestion still and I've been sneezing/coughing a little off and on but otherwise that's it. I have bad anxiety and I'm worried it could be something more serious. Thank you. x

    It might be lingering from the sinus infection. Have you tried a gentle saline wash using a neti pot? That can be soothing and might help calm down irritation.

    I've been using some nosespray but that's about it, I've never used a neti pot before. It's worth a try though, thank you!
