Woke up with eye-socket pain on right side out of the blue? Any ideas?
I've had sinus infections before but I tend to feel them in my forehead and feel pressure if I bend down.
This is just one side of my face, hurts when I blink and I can intensify the pain by just shutting my right eye. It feels like a constant dull ache otherwise, like I've taken a blow to the eye-socket somehow...but I haven't!
I had this a few weeks ago, I did have a one sided pain in the head on and off,and a dull throbbing pain which felt like it was my eyeball. I do get sinus but never had in my eye before. My nose also felt like it was sore inside and I did feel congested, so I put it down to that. Has completely gone now.
Thanks, ibelieve...it doesn't feel as bad today, (or I'm getting used to it) . It hurts to touch my face and also have weird one-sided head pain accompanying it today. Maybe it's a weird virus or something, because I've felt run down and tired last two days with it. In any case unless it gets more severe I think I'll just let it run its course.
