I have dull headache and it hurts to touch my eyebrow

I have ongoing pain near left eye...its like a dull headache but even to the point where if I lightly touch my eyebrow or lid, it hurts or feels tender. Or if I furrow my brow, it hurts as well. Doctor checked for migraines and gave Imitrex but that didnt work. Any thoughts?

It seems that you are having acute frontal sinusitis.
You have not mentioned your age as if you are above forty possibility of Glaucoma should be rule out.

Two weeks ago, a heavy drinking glass fell out of an upper cabinet and hit me just below my left eyebrow. It caused a cut about 2 inches and 13 stitches. At the time of impact I became very nauseated. The stitches are out but I am still experiencing sharp stabbing pain in the incision that then causes a dull headache . I did not have any type of x-ray , CT scan or other tests at the time. It has been two weeks and I want to know if this is normal; do I need to see an opthamologist? Betsy in Texas

Last evening, my 2 year old son took a plastic tumbler cup and hit me in the center of my forehead under my hairline. Instantly, the area was sore to touch, red and had a raised appearance- goose egg look the size of a quarter. There is no bruising, but my skin on this area is soft to touch and very painful. I slept well last night. All day, I have had a headache-dull in the right side of my front forehead then it began radiating around the the lower right back of my skull . During dinner, I got quick 2-5 second stabbing pains in the top of my head-like I was being stabbed with a knife. During the day, I experienced brief blurriness in my right eye. The problem is, we are on vacation in Disney World and I live in Ohio......My headache has mostly gone away, with a dull ache in my right temple. The spot on my forehead is still sore to touch or when I raise my eyebrows. I will follow up with a primary care doctor Monday when I return to Ohio, as my insurance will not cover CAT or MRI out of network. Should I be concerned.......with the blurriness and headaches?

My son gets a dull headache once in a while - usually it starts in the afternoon. Sometime the headache is severe sometimes it is mild. Before the onset of the headache he burps frequently. He feels nauseated at times. Sometimes he vomits. After that the headache increases and then subsides. I give him home remedies.I mix Ajwain cause(carom seed I guess in English) and jeera (cumin seeds in English) or dry ginger powder in warm water and make him drink it. Then he goes off to sleep. But thank God it doen t continue the next day. What could be the cause ? Can You please help me?

I am a 45 year old woman, overweight. 5 foot 7 239 lbs. I have had migraine headaches for 20 years and take imitrex for them with good success. In february I went to the ER for a migraine that was so severe it felt like I was having a stroke, with pressure behind my eyes and in my ears, and stiff neck. I also have high blood pressure. On the ER visit they ruled out stroke by doing several neuro tests like pushing on my hands and legs, etc.and I was put on IV drugs that helped migraine within 30 minutes. My blood pressure was 155/100 that night. I take lisinopril and ziac prescribed by family practitioner and just recently went to see him and he prescribed norvasc as well. I dont have migraines anymore but very strange ear pressure like I m underwater and my eyes burn and eyelids feel droopy. Last night I had face numbing around my nose and cheeks. I cant sleep well because when I close my eyes I feel like I m going to black out and I have anxiety about my symptoms being stroke like. Please advise!
