    What causes pinching pain above the right eye?

Posted on Sat, 12 Aug 2017 in Headache and Migraines
Question: Hello Doctor,

This is regarding pain in the area above right eye (Around Eyebrow as shown in the attached picture). I did the Gym yesterday after few years (Lifted weight) and started feeling pinching pain above right eye after I reached home from Gym.
I am facing intermittent pain above right eye till little above forehead from last 1.3 years. As per Doctor, that pain could be from TMJ but nothing to be worried about. I am little concerned if the pain I am having now (Around Eyebrow) could be because of any blood vessel unable to take the pressure of the weight I lifted? I just lifted 2 Dumbbells of 10 lb each above head 15 times and didn't feel pain while I was doing so.
Also, Please note that I have a small pimple in the same area (Near to the pain area). Not sure if this pain can be because of that pimple. But I am having this pain since last 20 hours (Except for 8 hours of sleep in between).

Thanks & Regards,

Brief Answer:
Not related to the weight lifting in gym.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting your query.

I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and I would try my best to help you.

I have noted your clinical details. Based on this, it is most likely due to the pimple in the affected area. In any case, it is not a serious issue and also not related to the weight lifting in the gym.

If the pain is troubling, you can take ibuprofen or naproxen tablets. You would be fine in a few days.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
