Very slight headache behind right eye for a couple days. Back right side of my tongue also feels slightly sore. Could be sinus? Have PFO and worry :-(

Migraine - PFO assoc: Migraine headaches is a complicated condition. While the issue is controversial, doctors have *observed* a correlation (not causation) between migraines & cardiac abnormalities like a PFO. However, a (single) larger trial free of "doctor bias" wasn't able to confirm this observation. So, doctors have no evidence to link your headache w/ the PFO though more research is needed. Good question, thanks ...Read more

PoppedInThePumpkin?: It's probably going to be OK,but the temple area is sensitive (on the outside--Ouch!--and..on the inside) and if you have a "rather strong"headache on that side, or the opposite,it would be best to get yourself checked out by a doctor and make sure all's well inside (in your "squash,"as they say in the biz).Sometimes, even what seems like a minor blow,there can be bleeding, usually in older people ...Read more

Do you clench teeth?: Some headaches are light induced others can be chemicals in foods....Many are muscle tension and respond well to Botox or splint therapy. During the day place your tongue on the roof of mouth and press if you find you are clenching your teeth. At night try a night guard. Tension can be held in neck and back of head and affect muscles of chewing. Botox helps relax those muscles for a few months. ...Read more
