Sinus Infection?: There are several things which could cause your symptoms. Sinus infection or sinus pain from allergies are the most common. Other causes could be more serious: tooth infection (can refer to area around eye), osteomyelitis (infection of bones of face-potentially lethal), nerve pain, etc. A good history & physcial exam including an osteopathic hands-on exam might help find the cause & maybe fix it.
