Daily headaches can be frustrating and cumbersome; they occur due to many reasons. Use of medications like ibuprofen and triptans on a frequent basis can cause headaches. Family history of headaches also predisposes a person to headaches. Other factors involved include stress, physical trauma, sleep disorders, and previous history of headaches. Swelling is probably a separate issue; consult PCP

Why would prednisolone 15mg/5ml (my ER dose is 12.5ml 2nd day) cause my forehead swelling to go down but then cause my eyes to get extremely swollen?

Could be

Head-eye
A. Side affect of the steroids, prednisone does cause elevated intraocular pressure in some people. These people we call steroid responders and should be taken off prednisone and the pressure of the eyes generally returns to normal. You need an eye care doctor to measure your intraocular pressure.

Swelling takes a while to resolve. Avoid salty foods and anything that causes water retention. Keep your head elevated when sleeping, and avoid smoke or other eye irritants. See your surgeon to see if further measure are needed to speed recovery.
