Eye is swollen in corner and very painful

Just yesterday I noticed that the inside corner of my eye (by my nose) was very painful.  I checked it in the mirror and the inside corner of my right eye is very swollen. Its like the little pouch (that I think might be the tear duct?) right inside the corner.  I have had a headache for a few days but no pain in my eye until yesterday.  I stil have a headache, the swelling in the eye has gone down slightly but I am still in pain. When I touch the swollen thing in the corner my eye hurts and I can feel pain inside my head almost by where my sinuses are between my eyebrows.

This could be due to a sinus infection.  Please see an EyeMD.
