Hi all, I'm a 28-year old female and I have had a constant headache this week, located in the centre of my forehead and the back of my neck. It started off with an eye infection in my right eye which also felt swollen and throbbing. I'm prone to eye infections when I'm tired and I am a contact lens wearer. However, that cleared up after a few days, but I'm still suffering with a headache. I think we can rule out dehydration as I have been being careful with my diet and fluid intake as I am trying to lose a stone. Just wondering if anyone had any support or advice. I'm reluctant to see a doctor as they are always less than helpful. Last time I went, I was prescribed Slimming World for a compulsive eating disorder. Real sympathetic. I'm exhausted, I struggle to sleep due to the pain, and over the counter methods don't help. I have a very active job and it's making it a misery to bend over or reach down as it makes me go dizzy. It's not a migraine, although a few years back, I used to suffer attacks due to stress.
