I have a headache above my eyebrow. I saw my doctor and I don't have sinusitis. It hurts so much since I wake up. I have checked also my eyes.

Headache: Greetings. Headaches above the eyes can be related to sinusitis involving the frontal sinuses. Other options could be migraine induced. Having your eyes checked is a good recommendation. Sinus blockage could be present too without having a bacterial or viral infection. Try Afrin nasal spray as directed for no longer than 5 days. I also recommend ibuprofen/Tylenol as needed. ...Read more

Why does my eyes feel like they can't focus & and eyebrow bones hurt right above my eyes? I feel like I should rest but I have insomnia

Eye strain: It's very possible that you are straining your eyes to focus, which produces the pain around your eyes and temples. Your best solution to resolving your symptoms will be to see an ophthalmologist to assess your vision and eye health. All you may need is a pair of well fitting glasses that focus your eyes clearly. Good luck. ...Read more

Lots of possibities: Sinus infection or congestion. Is there a rash to suggest shingles, although that's not usually a subtle condition. Any rash to suggest insect bite?

A pain right above my eyebrow feels like There's pressure on my eye it makes the area hurt a bit when I cough?

Forehead pain: Greetings. The point tenderness above your eyebrow may be due to an isolated frontal sinusitis. The fact that pain worsens with a cough could point to sinusitis but eye pain and headaches caused by a spike in the intracranial pressure with a cough could also occur. More history and a physical exam is needed to fully complete your work up. See your doctor. Good Luck. ...Read more

Ball hit my eyebrow on swminnig pool 7 weeks ago. Now when I blink my eye hurts. May I have retinal detchmt.? Shall I go to ER?

No: A retinal detachment would not be painful. It presents as a painless loss of peripheral vision. If your eye hurts when you blink it could be due to a problem in the cornea, or crystal, over the colored part of the eye or due to something on the inner surface of the eyelid. I would suggest making an appointment with an ophthalmologist who should be able to help you. ...Read more
