Sharp headache over eyes and forehead

User Profile
iv suffered with headaches for about 5 years, on some weeks i can get a headache everyday. unless i take a pain killer as soon as i feel it coming on it usually last all day.

i usually get them over my eyes and forhead, my eyes can become quite painfull, i also get sharp pains on the right side of my head around my ear level with my temple. i went to the doctors a few years ago about it but they blamed it on the pill changed it and it make no difference, they diddnt seem very bothered so i ignored it, and havent really taken much noticed of it.

is it something to worry about or am i just being paranoid?

Headache, Migraines, Sinus Conditions Answer A3036
Headaches can be present for many reasons, many of which are unknown. First, you can request medical examinations to exclude eye disorders, teeth disorder, sinus infection, cervical spondilosis, high blood pressure etc. as possible reasons for headache (they are very common causes). One of the most common reasons for headache is anxiety and mental fatigue.There are some less common reasons for headache like brain tumors or infections. Some types of headaches like migraine or cluster-headache have unknown reason. You can request analgesics or painkillers for temporary treatment of the symptoms, but you can also request several medical examinations to exclude the possible reasons mentioned above. You can follow up with your GP to request the diagnostic examinations.
