It could be the start of some allergy symptoms, a cold or even a sinus infection. All of these can give the sense of pressure between the eyes. If nasal drainage is clear, try some nasal saline. If you have colored mucous, see your doctor ...Read more

I've have had the same headache for over two weeks now. Its behind the bridge of my nose, and behind both of my eyes. Because of these headaches, lights and sounds bother me, I also get very nauseous. Should I be concerned with anything?

I've have had the same headache for over two weeks now. Its behind the bridge of my nose, and behind both of my eyes. Because of these headaches, lights and sounds bother me, I also get very   nauseous. Should I be concerned with anything?

Poss, but unlikely: The symptoms you describe are of a classic migraine with a "status migrainous". This is usually not dangerous but needs to be evaluated and treated and may be very treatable. This could also be a sinus infection. Lastly, there are some rare problems that can cause these symptoms, like pituitary problems. No matter what it needs to be checked out and the right treatment started. ...Read more

Anytime i get a headache i get it behind my eyes and in my nose at the same time. I feel dizzy and feel sick sometimes as well. Is this a migraine?

My ENT is off, I have some issues with septum and what not but my question is I get sinus headaches often(behind eyes and nose)how can I treat these?

Sinuses: If you truly have sinus issues, many times taking an antihistamine like claritin can help as I see you are on already, another option to discuss with your ENT is a nasal steroid spray like flonase or if possibly pregnant, rhinacort AQ. You mentioned septum issues, so ask your ent first about the nose sprays. ...Read more

Light bleeding from sinuses w/ stuffy nose when i sleep. I get very painful headaches that feel like they are right behind my eyes. For about 3 months?

Start with an aggressive Normal Saline rinse that you can get over the counter and do it at least 4 times a day and get a nasal steroid spray over the counter 2 sprays once a day , I think it's Nasonex (mometasone) but the pharmacist can tell you which name.

Infected tear sac: Your symptoms are typical of an infection in the lacrimal sac where tears are collected before they drain into the back of your nose. This is called dacryocystitis. It is very important to have this treated promptly and aggressively to prevent any complications from this infection. If there is no response to oral antibiotics, you may need to be treated with intravenous medications. ...Read more
