I have had a headache above directly above my eyes for 4 days, it is not a migraine ( I believe) as I have had them before and this pain isnt the same. It sort of a dull, achy pain, and nothing seems to help. I have not been under any stress at all, so i do not think this could be the issue. What could this possibly be?
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
There can be some very simple causes of frontal (forehead) headache. Poor sleep, eye strain, refractive errors of the eye like myopia (near sightedness), temporal arteritis, compression of cervical spinal nerves, and sinusitis are some of the common causes of frontal headache. First these need to be eliminated by your doctor before you can think of brain tumors and clots. Since the ache is just above the eyebrows consult an eye specialist first.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
