    What can I do for a sinus headache with pain in the eye sockets?

    I am an 18-year-old female, and I have had eyebrow and eye socket pains for about 4 days straight now. I took medicine, but nothing changed. It has only gotten worse.


    It also hurts to the touch, and I can't be around a lot of light. It also hurts when I blink. My eye itself isn't red, so what is going on?

    Hi face,


    I wish I could tell you what was going on and would really like to help, but that would be a really unsafe thing to do online. A diagnosis can be provided only by a doctor who can review you and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms, and conduct a complete exam in person. This is a good question to ask your doctor. 


    Do you have head pain with your eye pain? People can have eye pain with migraines. Continue reading Anatomy of a Migraine for more information on  symptoms and phases of a Migraine attack.  You might also check out Migraine and More - Looking Around HealthCentral - July 29, 2014 and Migraine Cause.


    Good luck
