Pain above eye, not swollen. History of LB injury, disabled

I have a pain above my R. eye, ON the R. side of the eyebrow bone . it feels as if I had injured or suffered a blow to this area, bit have NOT! The bone feels JUST as if it is ever-so-slightly swollen.. R. eye feels ever so slighltly different not pain, but I will describe it as full but not go as far as swollen. The slightest LIGHTEST finger pressure (moving eyebow hair only!) **increases the pain dramatically***! I have tried Duragesic 100 Mcg / Percocet 10-325 x #2-4, and Fioricet tab x #2-3. I get **NO RELIEF AT ALL*** from any of these Pain Meds - even in higher, non-standard doses.t I have Hx of CFS , FMS, CPS, - ALL related to a spinal cord/low back injury in 1986 t I do NOT believe this is my usual breakthrough pain because of the slight swelling, and *NONE* of these powerful Rxs have even touched this eye nome pain - Especially when palpated *gently* with a finger.just brushing the HAIR ON MY BROW BONE. Other Hx, MI x 4 with 3 stents placed ~ 1 through 7 years ago. No heart symptoms since 2007. Dx in 1977(chronic+ acute pericarditis .)-6 months! and again in 2009 (pericarditis..)+1-2 weeks with pericarditis. Since injury, also suffer from episodic migraines 15 days / month... I am a 56 y/o Male, with chronic LBP from a LB injury in 1986,(which triggered the CFS/FMS/CPS/ Etc.). LBP with radiculopathy in L. leg - to ankle. (L4-S1..initial injury but it has progressed to now involve entire spine (L.S. aqnd C spine) is involved including neck, with dec. ROM & pain. I habe had NO SURGERY. I am 100% disabled (since 1987) and spend 22/7 in bed b/c of pain, etc. I am disabled, and receive SSI in the state of GEORGIA. My Pain MGMT Dr is on vacation for 2.5 wks, and I do not feel this is serius enough to go to the ER (I HATE Hospitals!). ALL my SSI goes to either Rent or Meds. I cannot afford to see any Drs even though the co-pay is $3. Things are that bad...... So I beg for your reply. jeffmedin -a t- g  m   a  i   l  Thank you so much for your compassion and understanding. It is truly appreciated. I hope this note finds you well.

this could be a follicullitis,try hot fomentation,but other things needs to be ruled out as its not getting managed by the routine pain killers,dont want to afraid you but if there is swelling not subsiding by pain killers,cancer needs to be ruled out
