Brief Answer:
An XXXXXXX bleeding or fracture is possible.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The headache that you are having could be due to a mild bleeding in the sinuses or a fracture in the area. This can only be detected after a CT scan of the area.
If the headache is gradually increasing in the intensity with a pressure like feeling in the head or there is any bleeding from nose or eyes or vomiting with any neurological symptoms then you must consult your physician for further investigations.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
