how to get rid of eye pressure sinus infection

Can you get a sinus infection after getting over a cold? I recently got over a bad cold. Now I have pain and pressure in my head and around my eyes. Could this be a sinus infection? .

Yes


Yes it is quite possible that your cold may have progressed to a sinus infection... you may want to be examined by an ear nose and throat physician...

Eye and head pressure with sinus infection?

Answered by:
Dr. Chi-Wah R. Yung

Yes


All of our sinuses are connected. Sinus infection will increase the pressure within the sinus and some time causing discomfort and headache. Since the orbit is also surrounded by sinuses, some time you will feel like pressure behind the eye with sinus infection. Sinus infection however will not affect the pressure within the eye itself (intraocular pressure).

No


No, it can feel like a "pressure sensation" behind or in your eye, but the actual pressure inside the eye is not affected by a sinus infection.

Not usually


While the pressure in the sinuses can build and cause pain, this isn't transmitted to the eyes as they are separated by bone. Even when the bone rarely erodes and an orbital infection occurs, the pressure usually won't change until it becomes severe.

Yes it is possible


Yes, one can have symptoms of sinusitis without having cold like symptoms. I have treated patients for sinusitis after they have presented to me for periocular, forhead and sometimes even unusual complaints. I use CT-scan if I am suspecting sinusitis even if they have been treated for presumed inflammation. These patients may present with pressure around the eyes and even unusual headaches.

Orbital cellulitis


One of the complications of sinus infection is orbital cellulitis. Orbital cellulitis results in eye ball protrusion, pain on eye movements, limited eye movements. It is important that you seek medical care right away. CT scan differentialtes periorbital versus orbital cellulitis. It requires management with systemic antibiootic.

Likely a sinus issue


These symptoms do sound like a sinus inflammation. The fact that it's unilateral deserves an evaluation by an ENT. Allergies or a sinus infection are possibilities, although both of these would usually give bilateral symptoms. May have a polyp etc on one side. I would take over the counter Claritin daily and go see an ENT specialist if it does not resolve after 3 to 5 days.

Frontal Sinus


The frontal sinus lives just above the nose and can extend out over the eye. Pressure changes in the frontal sinus and infection can cause discomfort in this region of the forehead. Persistant discomfort or swelling and tenderness of the skin in this area or any visual changes (double vision) would require urgent/emergent evaluation. Sinus infections often require Abx. Hope this helps!

Sinus pain


Your description could be consistent with sinus related pressure/ pain. Pain occurs as pressure builds up in his sinuses and could come and go if the pressure is fluctuating. If it does not resolve or gets worse, you should go see your regular doctor.

Yes Could be either


Because the nasal sinuses surround the boney orbit that form the eye "socket" a sinus infection can cause tremendous pressure that may manifest this way. Other eye conditions such as glaucoma may also present initially as a band of pressure around the eyes or above the eye brow. I suggest you see an ophthalmologist and then an ENT doctor as soon as possible.
