Headache on right side, glands behind right ear hurts, jaw feels tensed, behind right eye hurts. Whag is this?

Headache on right side, glands behind right ear hurts, jaw feels tensed, behind right eye hurts. Whag is this?

Viral conjunctivitis: This is usually self limiting and lasts maybe 3 weeks. Doctors prescribe steroid/antibiotic eye drops. The steroid relieves inflammation. The antibiotics have little effect the drops do not shorten the length of the infection, but just make you feel a little more comfortable with it.

Had headaches in the right side of brain and neck, pain behind right eye, numbness on feet and dizziness whole week. Migraines or something worse?

Had headaches in the right side of brain and neck, pain behind right eye, numbness on feet and dizziness whole week. Migraines or something worse?

Migraines R usually: Not 1 sided. The neck can B a cause of occipital HA's due 2 trapezius tightness. With the whole constellation of complaints an answer regarding them would need an xam by Ur physician. I doubt it's something worse, as they R not all related.

I get headaches all the time behind my right eye, right side of temple and right bottom of head. So bad I am in bed all day. What is cause?

I get headaches all the time behind my right eye, right side of temple and right bottom of head. So bad I am in bed all day. What is cause?

Possibly migraine: Do you have other associated symptoms (light sensivity, noise sensitivity, nausea, vomiting, visual aura that precedes the headache)? These associated symptoms (you don't have to have all of them) would point towards migraine as the cause.

Headache for 3 days, started dull now worse. One sided, pain in my right eye (pulling) sharp pain in right ear and behind. Sharp pain in head too.?

Headache for 3 days, started dull now worse. One sided, pain in my right eye (pulling) sharp pain in right ear and behind. Sharp pain in head too.?

Sounds like: A frontal sinus/middle ear infection (Upper Respiratory Infection or URI) Most of the time the "culprit" is a virus (most commonly the common cold RHINOVIRUS) The headache and earache MAY indicate a bacterial "superinfection) thus a anti-biotic indicated.

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 :- (

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

I have a vein that goes across my forehead right under my hairline with headache on right side of forehead above right eye?

I have a vein that goes across my forehead right under my hairline with headache on right side of forehead above right eye?

Positional change.: The veins in the face just as the veins in the rest of the body change in size depending on changes in position as well as changes in levels of hydration and changes in pressure in the chest and abdominal cavity. In the face, the veins decrease with standing and increase with lying down. Straining or laughing increase the the pressure in the chest which can increase the size of the facial veins.

Pain above right eye and under the eyebrow, headache centralized on right side of forehead and cloudy/burry vision on right eye only?

This could...: Be a number of things including but not limited to vascular headaches, sinus disease, glaucoma, brain tumor, cancer or other tumor in the sinuses, a sinus infection, a periorbital abscess, a tumor of the eye or orbit, to mention a few. I would suggest that you see your physician and have a thorough examination and evaluation.

Can a blocked sinus cause a sudden bad headache around right eye and right side of forehead and down side of nose and right temple? Numb tingly after

Yes: Many things can cause your symptoms. Sinus pressure is certainly high on the list. Try some ibuprofen and decongestants to see if you get some relief.

What can cause a headache across forehead, behind eyes, and base of head, blood shot eyes and sensitive right eye.

What can cause a headache across forehead, behind eyes, and base of head, blood shot eyes and sensitive right eye.

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.

I wake up almost every morning with a headache on the right side of my forehead and in my right eye. Down ear and neck sometimes. What are the causes?

AM headaches: It sounds like your are grinding of your teeth in your sleep resulting in TMJ Syndrom. You may want to consider an over-the-counter mouth guards and see how that will works for you. If that works then you can go see your dentist to make one for you. You may use a mild muscle relaxant at bedtime (from your PCP). Use ibuprofen for pain. Best wishes

Pain in my right heel, it has been months and I am beginning to see floaters in my right eye and headache on that side of my forehead.

The right heel: Pain is likely plantar fascitiis and unrelated to the eye issue. See a foot doctor for the heel and an eye doctor for the eye.

Severe headache on right side of head causing dizziness and right eye to close. CT scan is normal. At ER they gave me Morphine then my eye opened.?

Severe headache on right side of head causing dizziness and right eye to close. CT scan is normal. At ER they gave me Morphine then my eye opened.?

Referral to Dr?: The ER doctor should have advised you to see your doctor for follow-up. That's what you need to do. Morphine alone won't correct the cause so it needs to be discovered and treated if possible. I'm glad your eye opened - now use it to find your way to a good doctor. Best!
