I've had a headache now for about a week, when i first wake up in the morning... there is no pain at all, after i start my day my headache starts up and by the end of the day it's in full affect, i notice when i rest my eyes or close them the pain dulls down greatly. i been to the doctor for this today actually and she diagnosed me with a sinus infection, gave me some antibiotics and sent me on my way. also my blood pressure was fairly high, it was 155 / 101, she wants me to come back next monday to talk about my BP and see if the pills she gave me worked. she said that normally that my bp wouldnt cause headaches. Something in my head tells me that a sinus infection is not what it is, due to the fact i have had no stuffy nose or any kind of cold as of recently.
The pain seems to be mostly in my forehead, mainly in my temples / right behind my eyes, every now and then the pain will trickle down the side of my head but not very much. i'm starting to think maybe i am having eyestrain headaches but i don't know for sure, i went and seen the eye doctor yesterday, my vision in my right eye is 20/20 and the vision in my left eye is 20/70.
I don't know what to do anymore, the pain isnt "Sharp" pain, more like a dull aching / throbbing pain with a fair bit of pressure. it's really starting to worry me, and more then anything its really starting to affect my way of life. No i havent had a MRI or a CT but im pondering to go into the ER to have this done as im typing this, or just to wait and see if the antibiotics i was given help. Just to toss it out there do any of these affects sound like a brain tumor or not? if anyone else if having symptoms like these or have had them please let me know what u did to stop them and what u were diagnosed with.
Thanks a lot for your time and patients reading this.
