Why Do I Have Tightness in my Right Temple and eye Twitches?

3 Weeks, Tightness In Rt.temple,under Eye, Twitches In Eye And Head

I am a 38 yr old mom with 4 children in good health. For the last three weeks I have been experiencing strange headaches and sensations in my head, face and around my eye. It is primarily only in my right side. It is a feeling of pressure or tightness in my rt. temple. Pain under my rt eye, at times my top teeth have hurt. I get strange twitches in both eyes and in temple. It seems to be worse in morning and late in evening. It has come and gone some but for the most part is constant all day. Eye doctor says my eyes are fine. My GP treated me for sinus symptoms, didn't help. CT was normal. I am worried about the unusual symptoms and how long they have been present. Have an apt. with Neurolgist in 2 weeks.......does anyone have any idea what this may be.

Thanks- Worried



Welcome to MyMigraineConnection!

Nobody can diagnose via the internnt, but we can share some information. Unless you have a sinus infection, sinus headache is rare. 90% of what people think are Migraines turn out to be Migraines. You can read more about that in Sinuses Giving You a Headache? It's Probably a Migraine.

Although we can't diagnose, I can comment that many of the symptoms you describe are common in Migraine. For informational purposes, take a look at Anatomy of a Migraine for more information about the possible phases of a Migraine attack and the potential symptoms. You can also read about various forms of Migraines and Headaches on our page Types of Migraines and Headaches.

Please keep me posted?
