I feel like a weight rests on the inner upper side of my eye sometimes. Every now and then I ll put my knuckle up there (between the side of my nose and top of the eye/optic cavity I guess hahaa) and apply a little pressure and it ll go a way for a while. I imagine if being cross eyed was painful this is what it would feel like Im not even kidding. That was the best way I could describe such a vague concept sorry for any confusion

Hello, my 12 year old son has been complaining of heaviness in the head for 6 weeks now...He says it is not pain but just heaviness in the head and feels something gets blocked for which he has to twitch his mouth to unblock.. His nose is blocked currently sometimes but he doesnt have a cold .. I went to our doctor yesterday and he asked to give him a nasal decongestant that could help clear hsi sinuses ..we have tried that but still do not see any improvement ....Ps can somebody advise treatment thanks

Tuesday February 14th I woke with a slight cough in my chest but felt fine all day. That night I woke around Midnight to violent chills even though my skin was hot to the touch and bad body aches including the joints. 4am my temperature was 102. I had difficulty breathing as well. Shallow breaths and kept waking up because I would stop breathing. Even my husband woke me up a few times when my breathing started slowing down. I spent the day of the 15th in bed with a fever of 101 and chills and a headache and body aches.Breathing was back to normal. I woke up the 16th with a normal temperature of 98.6 felt week but fine except started coughing more. Later that night my temperature went back up to 101 with chills again and body aches. Even had sweat pouring off of me. Woke up yesterday the 17th feeling great. temperature of 98.6 I had energy and felt great except for my cough getting worse. Deep in my chest. I breath out and it makes a gurgling wheezing sound and its really tight to take a full breath. At 8pm my temperature was back up to 100 and my cough is worse. Again woke up once with sweat pouring off of me. Woke up this morning the 18th and my temperature is back to 98.6. My cough is almost constant but now I have signs of a cold. My nose is starting to run and my head feels heavy. sneezing all the time. I sure hope you can help me figure out what s wrong. Is it just a nasty cold? Thank you! Kim.
