Hi, just looking for advice, about a week ago I developed headaches daily (pain scale 6/10), usually around the same time 2pm and 11.30pm, on the right side of my head, just above my eye, my eye feels weird when I get the headaches, it tends to last 1-2 hours each time and then lingers until the next headache, although the lingering pain is completely bearable, I could probably work during the headache bouts if I force myself but it is unpleasant. I seem to have similar symptoms as cluster headaches but without the severe pain. (Just to note I weight lift for 2 hours a day 10am-12pm 5 days a week). Sometimes I wake up with a headache, sometimes I do not, a small amount of alcohol seems to increase the chances of waking up with a headache.
I had a previous history or recurring headaches, had an operation to straight my nasal passage and cuts were made in my sinuses I think to release cavities I am not entirely sure, but it stopped the headaches, this was about 6 years ago.
I have had some sinus infection related mild headaches before since the operation but I usually take antibiotics and it clears up within 48 hours (I get 2-3 sinus infections a year) however although this does feel like a very mild sinus infection I do not have the usual sinus infection symptoms and I have not had headaches like this before with a sinus infection, I am currently taking antibiotics in case I do have an infection but it doesn’t seem to be helping.
Does anybody know what this headache is or how long it could last? Maybe I am just being anxious but I feel like this is never going to go away.
