Headache or something else?

curt66 posted:
For the past several days, I've had a headache that never goes away. It's behind my left eye and gets slightly worse when I turn my head to the right. It's accompanied by a feeling that my left eye is heavier than normal. Sinus medicine doesn't seem to help. Is this indicative any specific type of headache? Or should I seek prompt evaluation?

The symptoms stated by you states that you are not suffering from general headache but it might be migraine attack. During migraine attack, you will have severe headache on one side of your head followd by vomiting and feel sensitivity to bright lights and noise. Check with your neurologist and have prompt evaluation.

Thank you both for your responses. I've been checked out by a doctor and have determined that it IS in fact sinus related. Things have improved.

Great to know that now your fine. I too have sinus problem and often I experience severe headaches. I always prefer having a massage rather than going for any medicine.
