hi everyone-I'm a new member so any help would be greatly appreciated. I have sharp pain that feels as if I've been stabbed with an icepick on my forehead directly on my eyebrow. The pain is 24/7. Mostly, it's on the left side but will suddenly move to the right side. I can put my finger over the exact site, sometimes on the inner side of my eyebrow, lately on the outermost region. MRI's have shown nothing, also CT scans show zip. Currently, I'm on morphine sulphate ER 90mgs BID that hardly touches the pain. Help! My pain doc suggests a nerve block on the sopraorbital nerve.
Anyone familiar with this type of pain or treatment?

Hello Knightfall,
Welcome to Healingwell.  I've had somewhat similar pain issues.  I have a stabbing/throbbing pain above the inside corner of my right eye.  Not too many pain meds are able to touch it.  I have had two temporary  supraorbital nerve blocks done.  The first one didn't do any good, but with the second one I had about 6 pain-free hours.  The doctor said that since the temporary one worked, there was a good chance that a radio frequency nerve block (a bit more permanent) would work.  It didn't, but the doctor said they may not have hit the right area.  I've been considering giving it another try.
So if you do decide to have the nerve block done, remember that just because it doesn't work the first time it doesn't mean it won't work if you try it again.
I wish you lots of luck,

Hi,I'm new to the group. My son had that exact type of pain for 2 years when he was 8. He has had daily chronic headaches since he was 6. The odd thing is that when he was getting the stabbing nerve pain, he wasn't having the true migrains during those 2 years. We had several diagnosis. He wasn't given anymore than OTC for pain and nothing touched the pain. He was diagnosed with trigiminal neuralgia and then cluster headaches because the pain was better when he moved around. He was hyper most of the time because the pain got worse when he couldn't go anymore and finally fell asleep at around 10:30 pm. He was given an oxygen tank but it didn't help either. The thing that finally got rid of the pain was acpuncture. I can't say if it might help your pain or not. It hasn't helped since with the daily chronic pain he has now so maybe we just got lucky with it then.

I haven't been on for awhile and when I checked to see replys, I was so happy. Thanks for sharing-I can't tell you how much it means to me. I feel so alone with this constant pain and all these meds that simply don't work.This pain has now ruled my life for a year and a half. I divorced last May and my ex cancelled my insurance. Every cent I have goes toward meds and appts. The nerve block costs 2,000 for the surgical center where my docter would perform the 15 min procedure-the anthesia costs another $900.00 and I didn't even ask how much my doc's fee was. After talking to the Office manager she said he could do it at his office with no anthesia for $660.00. I can borrow that but if what I understand is correct, It needs several attempts. I can't afford this especially with all my med costs. I still need to work another 6 months or more to be eligable for health insurance at my job because of a terrible union contract my job has. You have to work 2 years at 24 hours a week. My manager will only give me 18 to 20 hours. It's a no win situation. I know this is a long reply, but I get so frustrated and being in horrible pain that I don't understand, I really get hopeless. I just want to say thanks for support, this is the first time I've reached out.

Hi Knightfall,

Sorry I missed this up to now. I am no Doc but I think it might be worth talking to your Doc about Indomethacin! It sounds like Primary Stabbing Headache to me (Ice Pick Headache).

The best person to see about this is a Neurologist who is a Headache Specialist as they are the only ones that understand headache well!

Aside from arthritis etc Indomethacin (Indocin) treats 3 kinds of headache, Primary Stabbing Heachache, Paroxysmal Hemicrania and Hemicrania Continua. You will need to take a tummy protector with it such as Lanzoprazole to prevent tummy upset.

But please aways discuss these things with your Doctor. It may be cheaper than the nerve block!

take care

Hello Knightfall,
I'm sorry if I gave you the impression that it always takes several attempts for nerve block to work.  Like many things, it may not work the first try, but it quite often does... I just seem to have particularly bad luck in the medical area.
Feeling hopeless is completely understandable.  It's great that you decided to reach out to other migraine/headache patients.  I used to feel completely hopeless about my migraines, but since I joined here and got to talk to other people that really understand what I'm going through, I've started feeling better on the emotional level.
Best wishes,

I have the same thing right behind my right eye, i find nothing works for the pain, i just have to try and lie it off

My father had a supraorbital nerve block due to similar pain. It was painful in itself but his "headache" ( that doesn't begin to describe his pain) went away for a significant period of time. They also felt he had trigeminal neuralgia and he took some meds for that. Have you had that checked out as well? Good luck.

I have had this pain for 2 days. I first felt it while on a flight from New Orleans to Boston. It set in on the decent into Boston, and was the worst pain I had felt in a very long time. I thought it may be sinus pain. I had to apply pressure so that I didn't feel like my eye was going to bleed. It lessened slightly and I took an 800mg Ibuprofen as soon as i got home. This did nothing for me, so I tried to sleep. I woke up several times that night then I remembered that I had a chinese medicine called TIGER BALM. This is a pain relieving ointment. There are 2 different ones, I have the RED Extra Strength. This did ease the pain enough to get me out of bed and make the day bearable.
I hope this helps some of you.

Hey I know how you feel.  I use to get migraines all the time, I also have chronic pain in my neck.  I found that I had the pain right behind my eyes.  I tried everything to get rid of it.  I found that morphine did nothing for headaches.  I would try something for headaches.  I found that a muscle relaxant helped the most.  I am on Norflex.  Also botox works well but is expensive. Hope that helps some.

Posted By : pugluv - 5/4/2010 11:53 PM
I forgot to add that I have had the nerve blocks and I have not found them to help very much. 

Posted By : Forkboy2 - 1/12/2011 10:43 PM
I had the eyebrow pain for the first time yesterday. It came out of nowhere and freaked me out. Strange thing is, it also happened to me while on an airplane flight during the decent, just like orionhunr's experience. It almost felt like I was bit by something, and I thought for sure my forehead over my eye was swelling up, but it wasn't. It lasted for about an hour and then went away. I'm flying back home tomorrow, crossing my fingers that it doesn't happen again.

I wonder if the fact that it happened to two of us while descending on an airplane flight can shed any light on what's causing it.

Posted By : SLBStevie - 2/10/2011 2:18 PM
I have just begun having similar pain - happened after an argument during which I got stressed/cried which tends to make my breathing very erratic and my blood pressure go up so maybe due to the descent comments it is pressure related?

Posted By : Spry - 5/30/2011 12:53 AM
I have the same thing. My doctor said it was nerve pain which I got from have cosmetic laser treatments. I go for acupuncture and hyperbaric oxygen treatments and so far it is working wonders. I also take a lot of vitamins, but the key vities for something like this is my 50mg multi-B complex and extra Benfotiamine (B1) and B12.

Posted By : mpk1988 - 5/30/2011 5:02 AM
well like 2 other members mentioned here... I too started gettin this throbbing pain during a flight ... days ago.. has anyone mentioned this to the doctor???? maybe it has something to do with pressure change or so..

Posted By : nikatty - 6/2/2011 3:50 AM
I too have had this pain yesterday while decending from an 11hour flight. It felt like a miniature clamp was squashing a localised area around my left eyeball and brow (mainly the brow). The pain was sharp and uncontrollable. Like others it felt like a bite and I presumed there was swelling. There was none and there was no sign of a bite. 24 hours on I have slept for 10 hours, taken two doses of paracetamol and I still have a dull ache (still localised) but it now feels more like a mending bruise!

It does worry me that such an extreme pain came instantly. I consider myself a healthy young adult with no previous history of headaches/head pain.

If it is related to air pressure is there anything that can be done to help prepare/alleviate the pain?

Could there be a link to blood circulation?

Posted By : Drewski - 6/5/2011 8:43 PM
I too get the stabbing pain in my right eye. I can feel the pain change as I push on my eye. Nothing touches it except the fentanyl injections at the ER. Pain does not seem like it is behind the eye or in the eyebrow so much as in the eye. Basilar Artery Migraines were diagnosed in 1980 and I get one or two a week, triggered by sinus changes - histamine bursts. Triptans only work if you can get them on board in the first few minutes of onset. Also get crazy nausea so pills only have a few minutes to work before they come back up with everything else. Never had the nerve (pardon the pun) to try a nerve block but this storm season has triggered a few bad episodes I'm willing to try pretty much anything. I'm new to the forum and appreciate everyone's stories and suggestions.

I've had this same pain behind my eyebrow for a few years. Nothing seems to help it. Rubbing it relives it a little bit, but you can only do that so long. The pain others have described they feel on the plane, I experienced recently. I thought my eye ball was going to pop out. It was the worst pain I have felt in a very long time. A few seconds into the pain my nose began to bleed uncontrollably.

Posted By : stellalove - 7/12/2011 5:23 PM
How bizarre. Today I had this pain while descending into Dallas with my toddler on my lap and I was honestly afraid my eye or blood vessels were about to burst. The pain went from my eyebrow to the inner corner of my eye. I'm still having pain on my eyebrow. I've never experienced anything like it before.

Posted By : mrCLD - 7/30/2011 5:04 PM
Hello all...this is my first post.

I was on a flight last Sunday and during my descent, I instantly had this sharp pain above my right eye, I could pinpoint exactly where it was. I have never had such a headache...and at the time...I thought my eye was going to bleed. I applied pressure but the sharp pain hung around for about 5 minutes...then cut back. I still feel an old bruise.

It was comforting (for lack of a better word) to read others had a similar experience. Any one have an asnwer/solution?

I consider myself healthy and I eat quite well. I rarely get headaches.

thanks all.

Was desending into Baltimore today, sharp pain above right eyebrow. Happened twice last year.

Posted By : Manan - 9/5/2011 1:38 PM
I just experienced the same sharp pain while descending from a flight from Mumbai to Dubai !! Unbelievable pain above my left eyebrow !! Sharp and felt like an ice pick had just been shoved into my forehead .. I've taken hundreds if flights and this is the first time I've experienced this kind of pain ..

I'd be curious if any members have a solution to this .. I'm a 38 year old male in reasonably good health ..

Scared the B Jesus out of me :)

Posted By : Loobizaz - 9/5/2011 2:51 PM
I had the same experience whilst a flight was descending - I was in so much pain, and I thought my eyeball was going to explode, and I actually thought I was going to die! I got some pretty strange looks from other passengers due to my near hysteria.....
I had contracted a sinus infection whilst I was on holiday, and this was the cause of the pain.
I have found a solution - there are some earplugs that you can buy from the chemist, which have a hole through them with a small valve inside. The valve helps to equalise the pressure inside your ear/eustachian tube. I live in the UK and got mine from Boots Chemist - but I am sure thay must be sold worldwide.
I never fly without them - you only need to wear them when ascending/descending or if the pressure changes in the cabin.
Hope this helps :-)

I have had stabbing pains in my upper right eyebrow. I realized I only get them when my neck and shoulders are super tight. I work with my hands a lot and I get frequent massages because of headaches from the tightness. These massages cure my stabbing pains. I would highly suggest to get a deep tissue massage. I get them once a week maybe once every two weeks. I truly believe that many people are just extremely tight around the shoulders and neck. Mine go away each time and I feel great because of the massage. Try it. It won't hurt.

I have been reading all your comments and I had a headache all day about 5 days ago and ever since then I also have had the stabbing pain just above my right eye brow. I have tried all kinds of pain medication but not yet have seen a doctor. I thought at first it was just a sinus headache but now I know there is something wrong. The pain varies in intensity. I am going to see a doctor in a couple days on my next day off of work. Any suggestions until then?
Ps. I put a ice pack on the spot that hurts and it helps a little bit but I cant walk with ice on my head 24-7 Plz help thank you in advance

Posted By : Boxerlover - 1/25/2012 2:13 PM
I started getting this pain a few years ago although so far mine has nothing to do with flying. My pain is in the inner corner of my right eye and like underneath my eyebrow. To me if feels like a nerve because I can find the exact spot and if I press on it, it really hurts. I had read somewhere that someone said it had to do with their neck so now I roll my head, stretch out my neck and massage a little and that usually helps get rid of the pain. With as many people who seem to experience this I am surprised the docs don't know exactly what it is.

Posted By : Iopnrs - 2/13/2012 12:43 AM
In relation to the first post (and the plane related), check out BAROSINUSITIS.
Even though the first post doesn't mention altitude changes there may be a related cause.
Lately when I swim under water I start to get a pain behind the left eyebrow. This pain starts mild, but increases to a severe stabbing pain at which point I have to surface. I began to think of it as a possible equalisation issue and so experimented with holding my nose and blowing (as divers do) and the pain went away.
Today I googled it and found a post on an aviation web site that mentioned the barosinusitis. Bingo!

Posted By : ultra06 - 3/17/2012 2:59 PM
Even I have this kinda eye pain. Occurs a lot. Sometimes it lasts for 3-4 days. I prefer sleeping to heal ma pain, which is not at ol helping. :( I avoid chocolates coz ma doctor says it myt trigger d pain bcz he thinks that i am having migraine.. When the pain is severe i get nausea and vomitting feeling. Am i having migraine or is this some other thing?

Posted By : Soulrelief - 3/17/2012 8:23 PM
I have the pain behind the Eye too and it is unbearable Also my eye had pain it. So my dad told me maybe it congestion behind it so he gave me a washcloth with hot water on it and low and be hold that helped my eye but soon after my eyebrow was beginning to hurt so I got the washcloth hot again then I put it over my Eyes and my eyebrow. For me it helped a lot I know it might not be the answer but its better buying pills or going to a doctor who both you got to pay for. I hope this helps. I got Idea that might help it be cured but that's just a idea That I haven't tried. Its up to you I can't promise anything but if the pain is caused by infection or impurities then cutting a area around the eyebrow or on it just a little lol. Then get that stuff that draws infection or impurities out on a wash cloth then put it on the cut. This Is just a Idea but if it works then post a reply on this thread.

Chalk up another one to descending from altitude on a flight (from Detroit to Quebec on Monday (today is Thursday)). I thought I was experiencing an aneurysm - no kidding. I started checking myself for brain function: Do I know my name? Day of the week? Where I am and why? Can I count? Can I read my watch? Simple Math? Remember the words to songs? "Hear" the melody? All checked out, but for about 10 minutes I was in agony, thinking I was dying and kind of wishing death would hurry itself along.

Like others, it came out of nowhere and just NAILED me! Felt at first like someone was piercing my left eyebrow, then drove deeper and wider until it was above/behind/in my left eye, and I thought my eye was about to explode. I was streaming tears and writhing around in the worst pain I've ever felt. Actually got pissed at my seat-mate over his total lack of concern.

After 10 minutes, it subsided into a left-front quadrant headache and a dull ache in my eye. After bumming 2 x 200mg Advil from my co-worker inside the airport, it gradually went away over the next hour. I had 3 relapses over the next 12 hours, but they were all very mild by comparison. I took sinus medicine the next day and until my return flight yesterday.

Saw my doctor today, and he said it was most likely a migraine (shocked me to learn they can be that sudden and severe). Could also be sinus pressure effects. Or an outside chance it was a "sentinel aneurysm." He didn't seem concerned enough to recommend an MRI. Suggested I keep Excedrin Migraine with me next time I fly and chew it up if I get this again.

I'm going to check out that Barosinusitus that Iopnrs mentioned on 2/13/12.

I'm so relieved to find so many of you who have had this same thing and lived to tell about it! Don't want to EVER relive that!

Hi Y'all, I had the same type of pain, first started in a flight from Texas to NYC, was so stressed, had to go to NYU and take an MRI, I was scared to death.

The headaches continued, just on the right eyebrow area, and it was very bad. I tried several methods, but none seems to help.

My doctor prescribed me Flonase (Fluticasone Propionate Nasal Spray) it has steroids, but doesn't mix with blood, so no issues. It completely helped my headaches !!

So please try that spray for the headaches...

I have had almost the exact same problem. I have been prone to headaches and migraines my entire life. I am likely to have at least three major migraines that leave me bed ridden per month. They almost always provide warming signs (numbness in hands, partial loss of vision, loopy feeling, etc.). However, this current "migraine" is leaving me baffled. After having a dull headache for nearly two days, I was sitting in my living room reading, when out of nowhere, I had this stabbing pain occur in the middle of my right eyebrow. I actually gasped for air and cried out, it was so painful. I could feel a straight line of pain from the corner of my right eyebrow to the same spot on the back of my head. The pain came on so suddenly and it immediately caused me to feel nauseous, lightheaded, and and gave me a distant feeling that is difficult to explain. I slowly made my way into the kitchen to retrieve an ice pack and excedrin. I took both and went to lie in the dark. This was last night. I still have the stabbing pain in the exact same spot, but it seems to have been dulled a bit. I have been taking round the clock excedrin, alternating with extra strength Tylenol. I don't know if I should go to the doctor, hospital, or just wait it out. Like I said, I have had migraines my entire life. What scares me about this one is that it is completely different than anything I have ever experienced. I probably would have taken myself to the doctor this morning, except I am honestly too scared to drive. This has left my vision weak and if I begin to move around much at all, I get sick.

I am incredibly relieved to see so many other people experiencing what I am feeling. At the same time, I hate that there are so many suffering from this mysterious, debilitating pain.

Posted By : 61442corrin - 7/5/2013 6:54 AM
Well I'm both relieved and disheartened that I'm not the only one suffering from this ridiculous pain.
I'm not sure if this helps or maybe gives further insight as to the cause, but I first started feeling these pains during sexual intercourse six hours ago and it hasn't gone away since. I can't sleep and I'm almost certain I've awoken my partner multiple times while shifting positions or suddenly slamming my brow as another wave of pain arises. If anyone over the last few years has found any cure or aid it would be very much appreciated.

Posted By : Alcie - 7/12/2013 8:47 AM
Thanks for bringing up this old thread. Usually one should put up their own, but this one helped me, and I've searched a lot of old ones.

There are at least 3 things in the eyebrow that can cause a headache: supraorbital and supratrochlear nerves and the supraorbital artery. There's a good dissection photo at Wikipedia. After you view it you won't want to "slam" your forehead anymore.

I have seen an ENT, a neurologist and an allergist, was finally sent to an anesthesiologist practicing pain medicine. He's trying steroid injections. If they work I'll get the ablation. I already have a small scar there since my headaches started 4 years ago with a truck wreck - airbag broke sunglasses, nose left a cut that needed sutures.

I know this is an older thread but for anyone that reads this and is getting headaches, specifically over the eyes, this is classic for gallbladder problems. Usually people will have digestive issues such as gas and bloating after meals, burping, and inability to tolerate fats but gets headaches over the eyes and right eye. Either talk to your doctor or sometimes it is a sluggish gallbladder and needs nutrients found in beets called betaine. Start juicing beets, carrots, spinach and apples and take 2 products called Betaine Hydrochloride and Beta TCP or Beta Plus.

I had the same pain for more than a week now. I actually had this pain since I was in 6th grade. It disappears and comes back randomly every year. Now all I can do is lie in bed, close my eyes and wish the pain away. My mother had me checked up by a doctor yesterday, and all she said "It was just fatigue". I read all your replies, and I really want to try out this Nerve Block you're talking about but it costs too much. I tried researching this pain and all I got was a hint on the Supraorbital Nerve. Can anybody help me? To ease the pain just a little bit.

Posted By : headgames - 10/31/2013 2:44 PM
Wow. I'm so sorry that all of you experience this agony. I started having migraines 3 years ago. Before then I was active - never stopped~ Now, I have migraines 3 or 4 times a month lasting 3 full days. Nothing prescribed or over the the counters works. If they do work, it's only temporarily. It's devasting and has changed my entire life - corporate job, gone. Working out 4x a week, gone. I trust my husband of 2 years will be gone soon too. In addition to the excruciating pain, blurred vision, eye socket pressure, vomiting, numbness in hands etc. this last migraine included what I can only describe as shotgun sounds inside my head (repetively about 7 times) As I was lying down (these knock me to my bed for days) I was awakened by that sound (almost unbearable to listen to noise level of the sound- I opened my eyes and looked around. I tried to call my husband and couldn't speak. I tried to lift my arm to hit the nightstand and was barely able to do so. After about a minute I sat up - tried to "get a grip" of what just occured...then went back to the normal migraine pain. Has anyone ever experienced this? SCARY. I wish to God and pray often that there will be a natural cure for migraines soon. Oh and I now suffer with depression due to these migraines..... God Bless and Good luck to us all : )

To all those with head pain especially frontal sinus pain when you are descending in a plane or diving, you need to take a decongestant like Sudafed or phenylephrine before you fly or dive. It will help you recover quicker after the fact, but in most cases the entire ordeal can be avoided by taking a decongestant at least half an hour before your flight or dive. My Dad was a pilot and after he experienced this pain once on a descent he always took a decongestant before he flew. Never had it again.

Posted By : jedmcdandy - 2/12/2016 6:26 PM
Hi I had these same pains for a year or two. I determined that is was blockages in these different pathways between the bones (nerve pathways, circulatory system or even lymph nodes). I found that directly massaging the most painful areas was the most effective way to "work away" the blockages, and opening up these impeded areas. Massaging these spots often proved to be painful itself, and that led me to believe that these very blockages and impairments of flow (blood, nerve, lymph?) in these passageways (whichever connective tissue they are related back to) often require PAIN in order to REMOVE the pain. The congestion in these areas warns us WITH PAIN to indicate to us that something is wrong in that area. So then it would make sense that these blocked areas are harboring (or storing) PAIN. And when you you directly engage these areas, the pain is evident, and is actually the guide to help tell you that you have directly located where the pain is "hiding." When you hit that painful spot, you've found the blockage -- the impairment. I don't believe these things just naturally GO AWAY as some people think (with medication), because that would also neglect how the pain settled there to begin with. I would say focus, on opening these channels by removing the roadblocks. There are so many energetic pathways in the body system, and many of them seem to follow the nerve/circulatory/lymph pathways (conveniently) or are in fact, shoring up in either or all of these very pathways. So if the pain FOUND itself there, let's not discourage the idea of directly "breaking it up". After all, with age we're always told our body will start to "seize up" and blockages such as these might be those cumulative "hardening" or "calcifying" or "turn to stone" effects of letting these successive "take hold" in our system. And to just have courage and endure some of the pain of removing them as well. I haven't had trouble after I "BROKE UP" the calcified spots of mine in these connective tissue/circulatory system through those channels around my outer eyebrows and base of skull (and still a lot of swollen/hardened lymph nodes in my neck I am now currently working on, in the progression of working all of these blocked areas and opening them up again). I personally think it was old dietary deposits that are indicating that they want to finally want "out" (like from homogenized dairy or something, they way Mooville explains -- it's one explanation anyway). Good luck, it is a "painful" proposition to take care of these spots (to break them up WITHOUT medication) but I am happy to say that it is worth it, and the pain comes back a lot less, and for me at this point -- WAY less. And I'm happy when it does, because it is just shedding light on the "final spots" I still have to work on.

Hi everyone, I am new to the forum after searching about pain under eyebrow. I've been suffering for over a week with an unusual migraine and like you all...desperately trying to identify possible cause/solutions.

Many of you have commented on pain upon descent, this is not uncommon (think about how babies start crying as they are unable to equalized their Eustachian tube pressure).

This link explains the phenomena a bit..I used to Scuba dive and sinus issues are a hazard.

Most of the time with it gobble slush ( crushed ice in juice) I get the shooting pain under my right eyebrow next to my nose. Since yesterday I am getting this pain off and on without any valid reason.

I thought it might be helpful for the discussion in this thread to post this:

Chronic paroxysmal hemicrania (CPH), also known as Sjaastad syndrome, is a severe debilitating unilateral headache usually affecting the area around the eye. It normally consists of multiple severe, yet short, headache attacks affecting only one side of the cranium. It is more commonly diagnosed in women than in men, but, unlike a migraine, has no neurological symptoms associated with it.

If CPH is the diagnosis, unlike other NSAIDs, indomethacin is particularly effective as a treatment.

Best wishes.
