Stabbing pain in temples, itchy left eyelid and eyebrow, headaches. Due to allergies?

HI, I have been get stabbing pains on the left side of my head for the past 4 days... theyre either behind my left eye, left ear, or near my temple. my left eyelid and eye brow have also been itchy, and the left browbone (or right below it) feels like a bruise if touched. Off and on I am getting headaches across forehead , and head feels heavy. What could this be from? I was wondering if allergies or sinuses could cause this, without having congestion.

Thanks for writing in.
Your symptoms could be due to migraine, tension headache, blocked sinuses or even temporal arteritis. We would need a more complete history to find out whats going on.
The itchy feeling is not related to this and could be something totally separate.
What I would suggest is that you take steam inhalation and drink a lot of warm fluids. If you're young, healthy and dont have any acidity issues, you can take Tablet Motrin 1 tablet as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily) with food.
This should considerably help
