Headache, not prone to migraine. Could it be stress related?

I have had a headache on my browline for about four days now. It hurts on its own (as headaches do) but when i touch it, it feels as if there is a bruise across my brow line. I m not sure what it is, as i m not prone to migraines. I ve tried to google it but i don t seem to be getting any good answers. Could it be stress related? Should i be worried or just use ibuprofen or advil til it ceases?

It seems from the history that you are having headache along the browline and it hurts on touch.
Pain on applying pressure is seen in inflammatory lesions and it is called as tenderness.
Hence your history suggests inflammatory lesions like sinusitis.
The treatment is by use of antibiotics, antiinflammatory drugs.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
