What causes pain while raising eyebrow?

Hello, I have a sharp sudden pain that comes from nowhere every time I raise my left eyebrow. There is no pain when it is relaxed, and the pain feels like it is between the skin and the edge of my eye socket especially at the nasal side but radiates out temporally.... This started about 4 days ago and has not gotten better.

Hello
It seems from the history that you are having pain while raising the eye brow.
This can occur because of referred pain from surroundings as occurs in sinusitis or from local inflammatory conditions.
Hence as of now you can use analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs. If the condition does not resolve you need to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
