I'm having extreme pulsating pain behind my eyes. What could this be?

See an eye doctor: Pain in or around the eyes that is excruciating, includes vision loss, and/or does not resolve on its own within a matter of minutes, should be evaluated by an eye doctor. The cause may be as simple as a migraine or atypical muscle headache, but can be related to inflammatory and other conditions. See an eye doctor as soon as possible.

Muscle spasms: Amit - I, of course, cannot be sure without examining you, but from the locations of the pains and they are changing, is often indicative of spasms of the muscles of the head and neck. My suggestion initially is to apply warm moist compresses to both sides of the temples and along the sides of your face at the same time. If spasms of the muscles are the cause now warm moist should help.

Headache sinusitis: This is could be a headache or sinusitis (inflammation or infection of the sinus cavities around the eye socket). The only way to sort this out is with an exam by a doctor with radiology images of the sinuses.

I beleive you: Need to see your doctor for evaluation and treatment. At your age, the description fit that of migraine. However, you need to be properly evaluated and diagnosed by your doctor so that he /she will give you the right medication and educate you on your condition.

You need to be seen: This sounds like it could be a migraine headache but without more information and a thorough exam, there is no way to tell. You should be seen by a physician to make sure this is not something more serious and to prescribe appropriate treatment.

Sinus headache: There are many ways sinus issues can reveal themselves. Sometimes chronic sinus infections cause only post-nasal drip, a chronic cough, an A.M. Sore throat, or a low grade headache, all without nasal congestion or forward nasal discharge. The lack of classic symptoms often fools the best physicians. At times, only a cat scan will reveal the underlying problem. See a physician for an evaluation.

Throbbing H/A on LHS: There are multiple causes of headaches. Migraine headaches are frequently described as pulsatile (beating with your pulse), frequently on one side of the head at a time, either left or right side, frequently with GI upset.

Healthy?: Feeling dizzy with throbbing headache is not fun. Please start with a clinic visit to your primary doctor regarding your dizziness, and have your doctor make an appointment to an eye specialist It is a nuisance - I broke five pair of spectacles at age 5 and didn't do much better for some time. Now at age 71 I haven't broken spectacles for decades. You will do fine.
