Hi there,

Thanks for writing in.

I would suggest you visit your ophthalmologist at the earliest.

The common causes of headache above the eye are Migraine, Sinusitis.
If the headache is more on bending forwards, it is more in favour of sinusitis. In that case, have plenty of warm fluids to drink. Do steam inhalation 3 times a day. Take a paracetamol for pain relief.Paracetamol will also help if it is a case of migraine.

However, I would advise you to see your doctor, to rule out more serious causes like stroke, uncontrolled hypertension, ocular problems.

Hope this helps.
