I am 49 years old. I am expierencing SEVERE headaches behind my right eye with nausea and light sensitivity. These headaches are infrequent and as far as I can tell have no discernable pattern or triggers. They occur every two weeks or so. I am a farmer and work everyday. I have animals to care for. What should I do?

I suggest you see an allergy doctor to check and see if you are allergic to environmentals / animal dandger and such. I have a pollen allergy and had severe headaches that almost sent me to the emergency room. I now take Zyrtec-D (Cetirizine, Pseudoephedrine). It was the only releif I could get. If I dont take it, my head including my ears and face would hurt. Depending on what state you live in, you should be able to purchase this over the counter. Just make sure you get the decongestant one with the above ingrediants. Read the back of the box to make sure you don't have the medical conditions that it advices you not to it. Would see a doctor first but if you see an allergy doctor, dont take any anti-histamines a few days before going since it will interfere with testing. Good luck!

Same as the above issue with the allergy. Mine was a Pollen / ragweed allergy and I had all the the symptoms you are having. Read what I posted about what helped me...Zyrtec-D but if you have high blood pressure or diabeties, you may not be able to take that.
