User:Hi Sir/Mam,

From past 3 days, I'm experiencing pain or twitch on my eyebrows, searched on net as per the results looks like it might be frontal sinuses (something like that, sorry not aware of the exact term) the pain gets stronger sometimes, stays for 4-5 hrs and goes when taken a pain killer usually in 1-2 hrs. How can I get it fixed as I'm unable to concentrate in office for the same Issue, please help.
