Can you have a sinus infection without a stuffy, runny nose, cough or fever? Basically the only symptom being head/ face/ eye pressure

Yes it is possible: Yes, one can have symptoms of sinusitis without having cold like symptoms. I have treated patients for sinusitis after they have presented to me for periocular, forhead and sometimes even unusual complaints. 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 more

I have been having head pain and pressure for two months that have not gone away I have also had eye pain and fatigue. I am scared I have an aneurysm!

I have been having head pain and pressure for two months that have not gone away I have also had eye pain and fatigue. I am scared I have an aneurysm!

Not likelyBut see Dr: Most cerebral aneurysm's aren't symptomatic until they rupture. Occasionally the rupture is preceded by 1-2 weeks of increasingly severe headache as the aneurysm expands prior to rupture. Because of the above, headache for two months is unlikely to be due to an aneurysm. Especially if you have had similar headaches in the past. Eye pain and fatigue are not symptoms of aneurysm. But, best to see Dr ...Read more

Why eye pressure raise?

Why eye pressure raise?

Glaucoma: For the eye to function, a balance must exist between the aqueous fluid secreted by the ciliary body, and the outflow of fluid by way of the trabecular meshwork. If too much fluid is produced or too little drains out, the intraocular pressure increases, since after infancy, the eyeball cannot expand like a balloon. Untreated elevated eye pressure damages the optic nerve possibly causing blindness. ...Read more
