No other symptoms but persistent frontal headaches?

Worrisome...: If a headache is bad enough to awaken you from your sleep, or is very severe, whether frontal or other part of scalp (there are no pain fibers in the brain!), you must see your physician. Most presume a headache is just a headache. But if never evaluated/worked up for causes, particularly if pattern changes, or become more severe, it needs to be. Must rule out brain tumor.

Olfactory hallucinat: Go to a doctor for evaluation and treatment.

Major frontal headaches, assumed to be because of kidney infection. Am I okay ? Follow up appointment is tomorrow...

Keep appointment: Good morning! Headaches can be associated with a kidney infection and should improve as the infection improves. I see that you are on LoEstrin and hydrocodone. Both of these could also be the source of your headache. Make sure you are drinking a lot of water and keep your appointment with your doctor. If you have fever, worsening headache, or vomiting, get in to be seen sooner. Good luck! ...Read more

I have bone spurs at the C5/6 that's pressing on my esophagus. Can they cause frontal headaches r below the eyebrow in cnr? My sinus meds won't work.

I have bone spurs at the C5/6 that's pressing on my esophagus. Can they cause frontal headaches r below the eyebrow in cnr? My sinus meds won't work.

Not usually: Mech problems can cause headaches, but they pretty exclusively run from the neck up the back if the head. I wonder if you might have developed a progression of your sinus problems to the extent that your medications are no longer working. Sometimes sinuses have to be drained. I would not hesitate to be seen. ...Read more

I'm having constant frontal headaches associated with eye pain/eye strain. I've taken Tylenol, but doesn't help. I was recently diagnosed with glaucoma and I'm 29. Could there possibly be a misdiagnose and I could possibly have a brain tumor?

I'm having constant frontal headaches associated with eye pain/eye strain. I've taken Tylenol, but doesn't help. I was recently diagnosed with glaucoma and I'm 29. Could there possibly be a misdiagnose and I could possibly have a brain tumor?

Maybe but: I doubt that you have a tumor. You can get it checked but the more likely cause is stress and the eye strain you mentioned. The glaucoma can give you eye pain. Has this been treated and is it severe? Do you have a lot of stress. If you have eye strain have you been checked for glasses? These are things I would check out first. ...Read more

I have a 6mm collloid cyst on third ventricle.  I have severe frontal headaches and dizziness. Should i be worried?

I hope you have seen: A neurosurgeon. Colloid cysts are benign tumors but if they obstruct the openings of the 3rd ventricle they can cause rapid death. It can be sudden. In most cases they do not obstruct the ventricle but i would recommend you see a neurosurgeon who will follow you carefully and have to operate when he or she feels it is most beneficial for yu. ...Read more

5 year old grandson gets mild frontal headaches children's tylenol (acetaminophen) takes care of it his mom is a long time sufferer of migraines, your thoughts?

Child's headaches: I would not jump right to migraines in his age group. There are so may things that are ahead of that on the list of possible causes. First is a good eye exam from a pediatric eye doctor. Next is a general physical exam and history from his pediatrician. While you are waiting for all that to happen, keep a detailed diary of his headaches. Day, time of day, what he was doing , diet, what helped, etc. ...Read more

Minor Musocal thickening within the left frontal sinus, the ethmoid air cells and right maxillary atrium found in MRI scan, have bad frontal headaches?
