I started having a dull headache 4 days ago on the right side of my forehead and behind my eye, it has gotten worse and now is a sharp pain. Cover the eye and pressure on the forehead alleviate the pain. I have been recently diagnosed (last few months) with bipolar, panic disorder, and ptsd. I have been taking lamotragine ever since and last month started Prozac and valume (forgive spelling). Is this a serious issue or something I can wait a few weeks when I see my psychiatrist? It does not feel like a migraine I use to get migraines I’m not throwing up and movement doesn’t change the pain.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i think this headache needs supportive care. And if it persists evaluation for the etiology. Work up will bee needed and complete neurological history and correlation accordingly to reach the diagnosis.


Take care
