Question: Severe Headache Behind Right Eye, Eye Swollen and Sensitive


 mcnally14 - Mon Nov 12, 2007 1:38 pm

I am 25 and female. I have had 2 migraines in my life, my sister and mother have them regularly. Currently I have a severe headache behind my right eye that has lasted 4 days. Other symptoms are pink eye in the right eye, eye is swollen, blemishes on right forehead have come up. Scalp and hairline is sensitive. I cannot move the eye, muscles are sore. Headache is debilitating.

Should I go to the ER? What will help? Is this a cluster headache?

User avatar Please go to the ER immediately. It could be anything from a simple conjunctivitis to a more severe form of eye inflammation.

Please post an update here after you visit the doctor.

Best regards and good luck!
