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

Eyestrain or???: Headache is associated with many etiologies, but having your vision checked, and corrected with bifocal glasses, can remove eyestrain from the long differential diagnosis list. An ophthalmologist or optometrist can screen the eyes for vision-threatening disease, and opticians can fulfill the prescription. If that does not work, make an appointment with a neurologist who specializes in headache. ...Read more

I keep getting headaches, 2 or 3 per week, mainly over my right eye. Now I have pain over the whole of the right side of my head. It's not migraine.

See a neurologist: I would go see a neurologist before writing these off as "not migraines". You may be having a specific type of migraine headache caused by nerve compression. A neurologist will need to examine you and determine if they think this is the case. If so, Botox (and potentially surgery) could offer a more permanent solution than long term medication. ...Read more
