Hello, Welcome to Just answer! I would like to get more information so that I can address your concern appropriately.
How severe is your pain in 1 to 10 scale?
What sort of information do you need? 7
How long are you having this pain? Any other associated symptoms such as headache, vision problems, rashes, fever?
Have pain since Saturday night and pain sometimes radiates down my forhead and behind my eye
Do you feel pain just by touching on that area?
Absolutely. That's when it's the worst.
Thank you for the information. Based on your description, it sounds like a case of shingles. Although an episode of shingles may subside on its own, but getting antiviral medication may ease your pain, cut down the duration of illness and minimize the risk complication.
Treatment can be taken within 72 hours
Thank you so much. I will schedule an appt. with my pcp as soon as possible.
There are some other possibilities as well such as temporal arteritis which can cause pain in that location, but I don't think you have any other supporting features at this time. If you see your doctor, they will be able to differentiate these two.
