Not sure: Not sure without having looked at the big picture. But is any viral infection ruled out? In case ct scan misses owing to low quality of image, nasal swab will have to be done. ...Read more

I've been having these headaches where the pain is behind my right eye and it feels like my eyeballs going to pop out of the socket what is goin on?

Several ideas: If the headaches have been going on for a week or two then might be caused by a viral infection or bacterial sinusitis. If they have been present for a longer period of time then more likely to be something like a migraine-type headache. Would recommend that you see your doctor for a full evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more

I keep getting a headache that consists of pain behind my right eye. How can I treat this. I've tried anti-histamines. I get many different kinds of headaches. Throbbing in the back of the head, pain around the temples and face, and also pain behind the

The : The most common benign cause of severe headaches is migraine. Migraine can feel like painful throbbing in the back of the head, around the eyes and behind the eyes. Migraine often comes with sensitivity to light, noise, and smells, and with nausea and vomiting. Most people with migraine prefer to lie down in a dark, quiet room, until the headache passes, which can take many hours. Migraine headaches have to be separated from migrainous headaches. These headaches share many of the same features, such as severity, pulsing and pressurelike pain, but unlike migraine, they are not benign -- they are symptoms of a serious problem affecting the brain, the linings of the brain, the eyes, or other contents of the skull. Migrainous headaches can be caused by brain aneurysms, tumors, other structural problems of the brain or skull, inflammatory conditions like giant cell arteritis or vasculitis, tearing of the lining of the arteries to the brain (called dissection), or tolosa-hunt syndrome, just to name a few causes. Headaches behind or near the eye can be caused by optic neuritis, glaucoma, dental problems, sinus infections or cavernous sinus thrombosis, among other causes that shouldn't be ignored. Most serious causes of headache become worse over time, especially if untreated, and would almost invariably lead to severe damage or death. It is very important to get new, different, or unusual headaches evaluated. ...Read more

See eye doctor: If you have had this for a month, it is time to see an eye doctor. At the least you need to rule out glaucoma . Once this issue has been settled, you will have to check with your personal doctor to find out the reasons for you neurologic symptoms. Untreated glaucoma can lead to vision loss or even blindness which can come on suddenly. ...Read more
