I began having dull headaches above my left eyebrow. but it does make it painful to look at any light. What is it ?

About 6 months ago I began having dull headaches above my left eyebrow. It only happened once or twice a month at first but now its happening almost every other day. I ve tried Tylenol , aspirin , Motrin and all those other pain killers but nothing seems to help much. It doesn t affect my vision when it happens but it does make it painful to look at any light. I m only 16, so I m assuming its not a Glaucoma which is what my teacher suggested. So what is it ?

Homeopath 's  Response
The symptoms that you mention seem more likely to be migraine rather than glaucoma. Sensitivity to light and noise could be associated with migraines along with nausea and vomiting at times.
The pain killers that you take, might give you temporary relief from the pain, but it is not a solution to your problem.
Homeopathy has good treatment for migraines, by tackling the root cause and not just the symptoms. With homeopathy the frequency and intensity of the headaches reduces with gradual relief from the symptoms. A detailed case history is required in order to prescribe the correct remedy.
In the meanwhile, practice breathing exercises, which would help in relaxing, also do not worry excessively about studies as too much stress can also intensify the complaints.

hi welcome to health care magic forum,
Your syptoms suggests that you may be suffering from initial stages of migraine, in migraine eyes become sensitive towards light.

well allopathic painkillers are not going to give you a cure, they may give you temporary relief, but if you are looking for a complete cure than you should start taking Homeopathic treatment.
Homeopathy is the guaranteed treatment for the cure of Migraine.

The area of headache you are mentioning is more suggestive of sinusitis . The other possibility is of migraine or even tension headache. Are you having any cold or coryza. If there is history of cold then it is certainly sinusitis and steam inhalation is the first step. Godanti is the medicine for this and if it is migraine then the treatment will differ.After hearing from you better prescription can be made.

hi welcome to health care magic forum,
The reason for your headache can be sinusitis if u have past or present history of cold coryza etc, or it may be due to stress or eye strain, so consult a nearby homoeopath to find the exaact cause and its treatment.
Dont worry, homoeopathy has best cure for headaches.
Take care
