Hi im Experiencing sharp pain in my head behind my eyesocket whenever I swallow, What could that be?
Hello and welcome to HCM,
Pain behind eye socket while swallowing can be due to muscular pain.
However, you can undergo an eye examination to rule out any ocular problem.
Sinus infection is another possibility for pain behind the eye socket.
A X-ray of the sinuses can also be done to rule out infection of the sinus (especially ethmoid sinus).
You need to consult an ENT and eye specialist.
you have take steam inhalation 2 to 3 times daily, avoid nose blocking and avoid common cold.
I will advise you to contact physician and take his opinion and also ENT opinion to rule out deviated nasal septum.
I hope you understood, take care and get well soon.
