hi all
 
I have ahd pressure behind my right eye and some pressure and tingling in my right temple for about 2 weeks...very strange. Of course i am afraid that it is some sort of tumor or aneurysm or something like that. Has anyone had this before? I have been stressed out lately and i may have some allergies, is this a symptom?? any suggestions or comments are appreciated...thanks, Carlysan

Carlysan,
 
Hi, I have the same problem.  I have been seeing a neurologist for oveer two years now for my migraines and that is a systom of migraines.  I usally get my migraines on the right side, and they are concentrated around my eye and temple area.  The more stress I am under the more intense the tingling around my temple and pressure behind my eye becomes.  My doctor told me that this is a common side effect and that my body is trying to tell me to slow down and relax.  I did go through a CAT scan and a MRI to make sure there was nothing wrong, but these are common side effects to migraines.  Hope this helps.

Thanks Dakota5...i rarely get migraines, maybe one a year, I am fortunate. But I think that this is stress related...it helps to know that I am not the only one experiencing 'weird' sensations in my body...take care,

I don't want to worry you! BUT you need to get a diagnosis for this as soon as possible. I had a drooping right eye with a feeling of pressure behind it, and slight dizziness, for about a year. I dismissed it partly through laziness and partly through fear. Only when it got worse did I finally get to see an eye doctor, and they found an orbital tumour about the size of a walnut growing in there. I have just had it removed, and it was benign (most of the slow-growing painless type are benign, but they can eat through bone and other tissues if you don't get them whipped out quickly). Of course there are lots of other explanations for yours, like possible hyperthyroidism and diabetes etc, but specific pressure behind one eye is not normally just due to stress. Does the eye feel especially bulgy and firm when pressed? Can you move your right eye and see as far upwards with it as you can with your left?

You'll feel happpier when you've got it tested and scanned. Best of luck and take care

My wife suffered from pressure behind her left eye. A CAT scan revealed a walnut sized bulge behind her eye. An MRI revealed it to be a tumor (not fluid). Orbital surgery removed it. It was NOT benign! Biopsy showed it to be Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma of the lacrimal gland (tear gland). Because the surgery showed invasion of the bone of the orbit she had proton beam radiation.

She is doing well 2 1/2 years after the surgery. But, her family practices doctor gets a superstar for being persistent and getting the CAT scan and following it with an MRI. Her ENT reviewed the CAT scan and sent her home with a diagnosis of "nothing found, see an opthalmologist in a year or two."

Since then we have learned of dozens of people with the same symptoms and the same results. If treated promptly and the tumor is slow growing then a good prognosis is likely.

I just came here because my own migraines- I've had them since childhood - have become an almost daily occurence with several trips to the emergency room when the Imitrex doesn't work. I first remember having a migraine at the age of 9 during the final rounds of a chess tournament.
Shalom,

Hi, I wonder if any one can help me...........I am 26 years old and I have quite bad pressure behind my left eye.  I seem to have it most of the time and some times Its so bad, I get a terrible headache.  I have been to an optomatrist and he said that my vision is 100% and he said my actual eye is fine.  I have also been to a doctor and she said that I had sinus so she gave me antibiotics and awhole lot of other medication.  It is now roughly 4 months later and I still have the pain.  I am scared it is a tumor.  When both my eyes are open it feels like I have not vision in that eye but if I close my right eye, I can see perfectly fine.  Does any one know what this could possible be? 
 
Thanks SO much for ANY advice!

Hey! To the person who is 26. I'm 27 and having the same issue! Mine has been going on for about two years or maybe more and I've just been too lazy and scared to do anything, but now it's getting worse and making me worry. I've had some issues with feeling like something crawls across my brain too when this happens and I get dizzy, but that hasn't happened in over a year now. But the pressure gets so bad that it almost feels like either my eye is getting bigger or like it's being pressed out of my head. It's scary and I do get really bad migraines, so I had just chalked it up as a sympton. Please keep me updated with what you find out.
 
Thanks, Jennifer.

Ok guys...Last october I woke up one morning with my eye swollen shut, double vision when I physically held my eye open with my fingers. Thought it was a sty, made sense I had one a few months before this. Went trying varios treatments for two weeks. Finally the doc sent me to hospital for MRI...MRI showed major inflamation, they thought it was a serious infection and hospitalized me for a week with iv antibiotics. Anyhow that didnt work (hmm stump a hospital wow) so I was discharged and sent to a world known teaching hospital, they decided to cut me open and biopsy the inflamation. Hell, I had a triple diagnoses with results... 1. AUTO IMMUNE DISEASE 2. NECROTIZING GRAMULTOUS INFLAMATION 3. TUMOR. Please, all of you with this....get your ass to a teaching hospital. Sooner the better! Ran out of options for chemo, and I start radiation next week. Woodworm, did you do radiation? All of you, dont take I dont know for an answer...keep pressing til you get someone to listen...saved my ass, now I'm trying to get a tumor shrinked. Saved woodworms ass too. Please....it can be begign or cancerous...why risk your life?

Hi guys, just been diagnosed with a tumor behind my right eye after a CT scan following a fall over a week ago. The CT scan showed something and I am now told after an MRI scan this morning that there is a tumor and it is larger than first suspected. Strangely I don't feel that worried or panicky, but I put that down to my ignorance LOL.

For me, the most amazing thing is that in less that 24 hrs of going to hospital regarding a fall I am due to see an oncologist, the treatment and care by the medical staff has been amazing and all of this in Eastern Europe ( I am a brit living in Latvia)

Of course, my next big decision is whether to stay here and receive treatment or return to the UK where there is the possiblity of newer/better treatment, but possibly worse medical practice..... looks like coin tossing time :)

What I have read here is, although sad, encouraging news that it is treatable.... best of luck and best wishes to all u guys

I get the pain behind the eye all the time---sometimes so bad just want to put a steak knife in my temple. When I had an MRI two years ago I was kind of hoping they would find a tumor so there would at least be an answer----sick, huh? Whatever treatment you decide on, you have my prayers and best wishes behind you.

I get these headaches where my left eye hurts like a bad headcold I have had sinus problems so I thought it was that my sinus dr said it was fine and sent me to a eye dr. he said it was fine and sent me to a nueroloigist . My pain is very bad left eye, also left ear like an ear infection and a headache in the back left side on a knot above my neck. the Dr has been giving me anti siezure cocktails and it has finally helped . down side is I never want to get up out of bed. which can be a problem. I have suffered Migrianes since i was a wee lad so headaches are not new to me sinus or migraine. but this was bad all you could point right to. other headaches you would say over here it hurts somewhere or somewhere over here this is spot on is this what yours seems to my dr calls them cluster headaches.

I have a similar issue. I have a great deal of pressure behind my right eye. It began a few months ago. I figured I needed glasses, but I'm far more concerned after doing a bit of research. Not only is my eyelid starting to sag, but my eye is starting to twitch- which I've read may be because of something (either a tumor or an artery) pressing on nerves that control the face. I was diagnosed with Migraine maybe five or so years ago, but my neurologist never found anything odd in my MRIs (save for a caved in sinus, also on my right side). I've just received a health insurance card in the mail this week, and am looking for a new primary and eye doctor. I'm getting nervous as to what the verdict will be...but as someone wrote before, I hope there's something there, because at least it gives me an answer. If this is all happening for no reason then I think I may just go crazy.

this is the first time i've found something close to what i've felt for numerous years. my pain feels like i am pressing on the top of my eyes with my fingers. sometimes when i sleep (i am an on my side sleeper) especially on my right .... i have to keep the pillow pressure quite far away from the eye as the pain is way too intense.

when everyone mentions pain in back of eyes .... can they be more direct on where exactly they are referring? again, mine is centered over each and is worse in the winter.

I forgot to mention that for the most part I would rather close my eyes or sleep most the time. There is also some burning (part of the same or more part of the winter and forced air heat.)

Hi I had Rotator Cuff repair surgery August 12 2009. about a month before the surgery I started getting some pain behind the right eye. I still have the pain ( It comes and goes) after the surgery. I think it is a tendon problem. I have had an MRI and Eye test and all is ok. Could this be a post surgery thing?

Hi Lisa to be honest with you I think it is caused by stress. Stress tightens up the tendons in the neck. I know when my eye pain flares I always push on the tendon running up my neck to the back of the head and it is sore. I think I will try a massage. have you been stressing at all?

Well I had an MRI done and I went to see an Optometrist and the eye is ok. I need to try and re train my shoulder ( Surgery from a tear) to relax as I tend to over protect it. Its been damaged for so long that I compensated all the time. Now that it is fixed it is coming back to where it should be so I am having troubles. Maybe you are sleeping wrong or if you hug a pillow you may have pinched something. You should have it looked at though. Sinuses may cause it as well .

as a new member, I would like to offer the following opinion re pain behind the eye. I have had this for at least 25 years - it occurs haphazardly - and I have put it down variously to stress, sinus, allergy.

 

Recently, a lump grew on the side of my neck; the lump grew overnight, and it was the size of a golf ball - 6 cms across and very visible, and very rare for a male in their 50's. I now have to have my thyroid removed as the thyroid is bleeding into itself, the lump re-grows after being drained of fluid, and the  lump is too large to keep performing FNA's. My theory is that given bulging eyes is a common symptom of hyperthroidism, couldn't pain behind the eye be related to an overactive thyroid? My right eye goes blurry from time to time, and then returns to normal a few days later.  - the left eye is ok. This may also be associated with the thyroid.

waugh..... I am also a new member! I have for years thought that the pressure behind my right eye that leads to a bad headache was from my sinus'. I had a CT scan done and the allergist said I do have slightly swollen sinus'. I was put on prednisone (steroid) and it really didn't help. I finally, today went and talked to another dr and she is now saying that I have been having a migraine and gave me some meds. She also felt my neck and asked if I have ever had my thyroid checked (which I hadn't). She then sent me for a thyroid test. I have since come home and found that yes, pressure behind the eye (mostly right) can be a cause for an under active thyroid. I am now awaiting the results to see if this is the all or part of my eye pressure/migraines.

Hi I am 49 years old and diabetic for past 18 years. I have had shooting pain behind my eye and back of my head. I thought that was the end of me. When I saw the GP about it, it had to do with stress and I had to go on tablets which gave me relief. So, please see your GP about your problem.
