Hyperthyroid: The two medications that you are hopefully taking are Methimazole and a beta blocker (propranolol, metoprolol, atenolol, etc). You may need to increase your dose, but you should do this under the supervision of your doctor. Even though your appt is not for another week, you should call him/her.

Is there a way to get rid of headaches around my eye?

Is there a way to get rid of headaches around my eye?

Glasses or rest: The most common cause is tension headaches. This can be due to straining to read without proper glasses, staring at a book or computer for hours on end, or even dry eyes. If Ibuprofen or Aspirin do not relieve the symptoms, they persist despite medication, or there is an associated vision change, you will need to see your eye doctor. Headaches that don't go away always need to be evaluated.

Decongestant: Most pain in or around an eye is from sinusitis or headache. Pain reliever and decongestant should relieve it. If not, or if it is getting worse, go see your doctor. It could also be due to an eye problem such an inflammation in (called uveitis) or around the eye. You need to see an eye doctor to really rule this out.

Not uncommon: Headaches after a head injury are not uncommon. Some pain medications may be more offensive than others. I would seek care with a specialist (family doctor that has sports medicine training, concussion clinic, neurologist that specializes in this type of thing, etc.).

I have a kinda bad headache on the right side of my head kind of up and behind my right ear. What does it mean and how do I get rid of it?

I have a kinda bad headache on the right side of my head kind of up and behind my right ear. What does it mean and how do I get rid of it?

Occipital headaches: Lesser and greater occipital nerves live in the area of your head where you are describing pain. What frustrates patients is that these nerves can cause pain without any traumatic event. You didn't mention any visual disturbances (blurry, double vision) or other red flags so that a NSAID may be beneficial. Your PCP may have Toradol in house to give you for fairly quick reduction in head symptoms.

Hi. I have a right eye that bulges a little and I feel pressure behind it. I have a large goiter but my blood work is fine so no treatment. Headaches 2?

Depends on you: If it were me I'd still feel like I'd want treatment if I thought my bulging eye pressure in my orbit (if it were bothering me) were caused by the goiter & I had headaches which certainly seem like they're at least as likely as not related, don't ya think RATHER than saying, "Labs are normal-- probably nothing to do..." or worse than that for someone to tell you it's all in your head. Just sayin'

How can I get rid of the bags under my eyes?

Plastic surgery: If your bags are there all day long (not worse in the morning and better by evening--this is fluid), you have protruding fat pads (caused by aging or genetics and weakening of the orbital septum and skin/muscle layers). Plastic surgery (blepharoplasty) can trim, reposition, and tighten the lower eyelids beautifully, but have an abps-certified plastic surgeon do the work to minimize risks!
