I am having pain above my left eyebrow and up to the far left

Resolved Question:

I am having pain above my left eyebrow and up to the far left part of my forehead. It feels like a bruise [very bad painful one] to touch. I tried to explore it with my fingers and when I located the place that it hurt really bad, it caused a feeling of pressure behind my left eye and my ear felt like it needed to pop. I also feel congestion way up high in the sinus area of that nostril. What the heck??

How long has your sinuses been congested?

Honestly I have allergies so pretty much forever

Your symptoms sound consistent with a sinus infection. Have you seen your doctor about this?

no I haven't

Doctor DanB :

I would recommend seeing a doctor to get an exam to confirm this; it sounds like antibiotics may need to be started.
