  • It could be sinus problems. I used to have pain in my eyes all the time. It could also be a serious eye problem. If she hasn't been to the eye doctor recently, she should go and get it checked out.

  • no it isnt sinus problems had that once before and it was very painful but a very different pain. This pain tends to radiate around my left side of my head above my ear as well as the socket and top of cheekbone and eye itself. I did think it may be dental and saw a dentist who removed my back top tooth on the left side about a year ago (he did offer to fill it but i just wanted it out) but there was absolutely no improvement. I do have other problems. I have a lot of urine infections and swelling (huge amount) I have memory loss and loss of vocabulary which is frustrating and sudden weight gain and dry itchy skin and ridged flaky nails stomach pain and it swells so i look 8 months pregnant the list goes on ha ha ha!I have only just been refferred to an endocrinologist after a year of asking to be. A year of hospital appointments and they keep saying im just depressed and offering me antidepressants and they tell me it explains my symptoms but i dont feel depressed however the pain does get me down. I have recently started a course of antidepressants three weeks ago and there is no change in symptoms I also have bad hair loss and major problems sleeping and irratable but it seems to come in waves .......oh and a leaking nipple lol i just feel very ill but the eye thing really gets me down a diet of anadin extras cant be good for me either xxAny ideas would be appreciated xxx

  • That sounds like a lot of symptoms, so I definitely think that you should schedule a consultation with a doctor before this goes any further

  • You had a kind of headache or migraine -- but, from the description that you give, it is not necessarily a sinus headache. It could have been one of a number of types of headache or migraine. See your doctor to know for sure.

My left eye ached. I thought I needed new glasses - no. I thought I had sinus problems - no. Did the MRI -negative. Eye specialist - negative. I went to a neurologist. He said, I had a cluster headache. Eye and headache... hmmm? There are some blood vessels behind the eye that are in a swelling position, resulting putting pressure on the nerves of the eye. My eye was throbbing behind my eyeball. The medicine - VERAPAMIL (blood thinner med). Takes about 9 month to fix. I have had sinus medicine and it worked in the past, but not this time.

All of your sypmtos sound very similar to me including the whole looking pregnant thing. I'm just on here trying to figure out my eye and all over head pain. You should really have them test you for Celiac. It could change your whole life!! :)

  • I received a notice concerning your right eye. What happens is when you write about your problem(s) does the one readying your message get the picture of what “their role” is.... reading your declaration. You are declaring your problem; my role is, you are relying on me to present a defendable possibility. My left eye throbbed - presenting a confirmation to you. What smart people do when passing messages is to get confirmation. My left eye throbbed and the "sinus suggestion" was not the problem - confirmation. I took some blood thinner medicine - the doctors remedy. It worked. The diagnosis is called - cluster headache. Next, what smart people realize is, that words guide us to a picture. I want to pass on to you an experience that maybe relevant to.... you regarding a common denominator to your problems... compounding. I have stopped drinking diet soda... period. I defend my position this way: I worked for the number 1 cola company. Bee keepers would come by to purchase old soda syrup - corn sugar based. Bee keepers will not buy soda syrup - diet sugar based, because it will kill the bees. That picture has worked on my head for years. I stopped drinking diet sodas and have not had any problems with my eye and also a reoccurring sharp body pain… stopped. Assumption - stop drinking diet soda and also buy raw sugar – get confirmation that sugar is or is not a defendable cause: Slice apples and place a good portion of raw sugar on the apples and microwave for 7 mins. Solve the sweet tooth problem, whip low fat or non-fat milk with honey, it creates a milkshake drink. Look for ways to use natural sugar to solve the sweet tooth. Again – eliminate sugar is or is not your problem. Muttmind
