Stabbing Pain Behind The Right Eye And Flu Symptoms. Is This Something We Should See A Doctor About Or Part Of Having Flu?

I have been experiencing stabbing pain behind the right eye and flu symptoms. Is this something we should see a doctor about or is it just part of having the flu?

Answer

Hi, Katie,

Good question. Yes, you should see a doctor.

The pain behind the eye could be part of the flu, related to a headache disorder such as Migraine, or it could be something else entirely. The only way to know is to see a doctor.

I hope it turns out to "just" be part of the flu. Please let me know?
