Painful eyebrows and eye sockets. What is wrong?

Hi, for the past ew months, I am suffering from pain in the nerve near my eyebrows and eye socket. The pain last for couple of days and after a gap of one or two months, the situation remains the same. Due to this pain, I am unable to work and concentrate on anything. Can you please tell me the reason behind it. I am 26 years old and I have a 3 yr old kid.

Painful eyebrows and eye sockets may be because of referred pain from diseases of surrounding structures like sinusitis. Before going to non eye causes you need to get eye checkup to rule out refractive error. If vision is normal and no refractive error please consult ent doctor to rule out sinusitis.
