Headache at temples that extends to forehead. Eyes feel strained. Been bothering me for 2 days so far. Help?

Eye exam: Tension headache is likely what you are experiencing. If you are squinting and therefore straining the muscles around your eyes, this may also exacerbate your symptoms of strain, tension, headache and fatigued eyes. An eye examination will at least disclose any refractive error or ocular misalignment issues. As for the headaches, rest, heat, massage of the tight muscles & analgesia will help. ...Read more

Strained muscle around eye. Can it cause a aching in temple and cheek and forehead or could sinus issue cause that?

Strained muscle around eye. Can it cause a aching in temple and cheek and forehead or could sinus issue cause that?

Aching: This could be a neuralgia, an irritated/inflamed nerve, rather than a sinus infection as the latter would have to involve more than one paranasal sinus to cause discomfort in all these areas but it's still a possibility. You could consult an otolaryngologist if symptoms persist. ...Read more

Why does my head and face throb when I stand up? Brief headache lasting 5sec or less. Happens when I barely strain when on the toilet too. Tumor?

Why does my head and face throb when I stand up? Brief headache lasting 5sec or less. Happens when I barely strain when on the toilet too. Tumor?

No tumor: When standing, especially from lying down the blood flow dynamics to the heart and head and neck region change. The description of a similar effect with mild straining on the toilet is known as the Valsalva maneuver. Return of systemic blood to the heart is impeded by the pressure inside the chest. The output of the heart is reduced and stroke volume falls. This occurs from 5 to about 14 seconds ...Read more

Hit head 1 wk ago, exam ok- dr said take pain med. Mild headache, straining on toilet aggravates pain alot. No other symptoms what to do?

Hmmmm: It's good the exam found no problem, but another might be worthwhile if it remains painful another week. Obviously, drink lots of water and eat so you won't strain. Avoid other strains as far as possible. Take OTC pain pills as directed and keep written notes on progress. Call the doctor if unsure. Best! ...Read more

I am feeling strain and stretch feeling round the right neck, and right side of fore head since two months. It goes sometimes but comes back.

Hard to know: If you're not doing some job or exercise that causes you to move your head far to one side or keep it there for a long time or puts pressure on that side it is really hard to evaluate this from afar. Keep a diary on what you have been doing the day before it happens. Check for any lumps or tender spots, try gentle massage on them when the neck hurts, and apply a warm compress or Arnica.
