I have had a headache for a week and a half behind my eyes.. I have sinus congestion but no drainage or fever. Is this caused by a virus?
Maybe: Your headache very likely is a consequence of your sinus congestion, even without drainage. It can be from allergic reaction to inhaled allergen like pollen, a viral infection or even a bacterial infection. However, you may be right that this is not from a bacterial infection as you are not systemically sicker (fever, chills, swelling around the facial area). Try otc anti-allergy/decongestant. ...Read more

Other thought is to consider environmental toxins like carbon monoxide, etc. ...Read more
