Diagnosis of Migraine & Headache Types

Dull pain above right eyebrow everyday-driving me mad

  • By hannic16

    Hello,

    i have a dull pain on the right side of my head just above my eyebrow, it drives me insane i wouldnt say its super painful i just know that it is there and its so annoying and gets me really down.

    i initially thought it was sinus so went to a speciailst who said they think its headaches.

    does anyone else have this?? it drives me mad and its so hard to explain to people as they dont really understand. if anyone has this what treatment have you used i just want it to go away or atleast not be everyday.

    thanks

    Hi hannic 16,

    Thank you for your question. Good to hear you checked in with your doctor. Did he give you any suggestions to help ease this pain?

    There is a big difference between migraine disease and headache. Getting an accurate diagnosis will help you learn about your particular type (s) of migraine and/or headache (its possible to have both!) and get the correct treatment. Let me share this article on doctors and diagnosis with you; https://migraine.com/migraine-diagnosis/.

    With the weather constantly changing where I live, I’ve noticed my sinuses are not happy! It’s all together possible for sinus issues/congestion to trigger a migraine attack.

    Let me know what you think,
    Nancy
