Eye Pressure From Sinus Infection
Is it common to have eye issues like discomfort , or pressure above the eyebrow &/or around the eye, when dealing with a cold or sinus infection?

I recently took a zpack for a sinus infection. I have had pressure and pain ongoing behind one eye around one month now. It's still there. Now what?
Yes: All of our sinuses are connected. Sinus infection will increase the pressure within the sinus and some time causing discomfort and headache. Since the orbit is also surrounded by sinuses, some time you will feel like pressure behind the eye with sinus infection.

Have facial pressure on left side of nose and in my head round by my eye, nasal congestion and post nasal drip. It is not a sinus infection.Any ideas?
Likely a sinus issue: These symptoms do sound like a sinus inflammation. The fact that it's unilateral deserves an evaluation by an ent. Allergies or a sinus infection are possibilities, although both of these would usually give bilateral symptoms. May have a polyp etc on one side. I would take over the counter Claritin daily and go see an ENT specialist if it does not resolve after 3 to 5 days. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Can you have a sinus infection without a stuffy, runny nose, cough or fever? Basically the only symptom being head/ face/ eye pressure

I use ct-scan if I am suspecting sinusitis even if they have been treated for presumed inflammation. These patients may present with pressure around the eyes and even unusual headaches. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Sure, see ENT: Unless the diagnosis was made within that week you could develop one. Possible even if it was a few days ago, as it may be subclinical and not diagnosed even if it was developing. Tap your forehead and cheekbones next to your nose. Bend over and see if it hurts. If these are positive, then you may have a sinus infection. Also, a copious clear or less copious yellowish thick discharge may indicate. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
