For about four or five days now, the left side of my head has been in pain. It's one of those incredibly annoying throbbing pains, that turns into a stabbing pain whenever I cough. Every so often, my left tear duct will start streaming tears, and my left nostril will run as well. Even though this is all happening on the left side, both of my eyes are bloodshot. The right side of my head feels completely normal.
I truly hope this is a short-term thing, it's getting to be unbearable.
EDIT: I tried Mucinex to clear my sinuses, but it didn't do a thing.
It sounds as though it could be something called a cluster headache. You need to call your doctor about them. THere are perscriptions that call help but to the best of my knowledge there is nothing over the counter that will help.
I hope you are feeling better soon. Keep us updated!
Hi I am suffering from pain on the left side of my head. I've had migraines since the age of 6 and i am now 31. For a while it would feel like a worm is crawling around my temple and now its turned into a pulsating feeling! Now I have bad surges of pain near my temple.....Im scared and going to the doctor next week! What could this be???
