DR HASAN :

Tension headache and migraine is one possibility but symptoms are not classical.

Customer :

is that all. I have had two sinus sugeries but have never had sinus pain such as this.

DR HASAN :

The tenderness in the temple areas is something pointing towards the temporal arteritis but one cannot be sure without examination and investigations

With 3 hrs i suggest you can wait for some more time to see how it goes, if no relief you should get it evaluated
