Resolved Question:

I have pain on my cheek bone, directly under my left eye. I have also had nasal congestion and allergy-like symptoms over the last week or two. Could this be caused by a sinus infection? I don't seem to have a fever. I have also felt a little light headed for the last day or two when I move my head suddenly.

Thanks!

Hello,

How long and how frequently are you having the pain?

Is there any tenderness over there? swelling, redness?

Do you have any other symptom or previous illness?

What is your age? sex?

Thank you.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi. The pain just started over the last couple of days. It seemed worse today. It seemed like I could feel it running down my cheek, like it was a nerve or something. The doesn't seem to be swelling or redness, but it is a little tender.

 

I currently don't have any other symptoms related to this.

 

I am 44, female. I had sinusitis this past summer, but had a fever then. I had gyn surgery in Jan for carcinoma-in-situ, but am otherwise pretty healthy.

 

Thanks.

Thank you for the information,


The pain and tenderness in the cheek bone can be due to infection or inflammation of sinus or sinusitis.

This can be due to infection of the upper molar teeth.

When you had nasal congestion, sinusitis is a possibility here.

The lightheadedness can be due to sinus infection.


The symptoms might have started as viral infection which usually resolve by itself with supportive therapy.

Viral infection usually gets better in 3-5 days.

Sometimes, bacterial super infection can occur during post viral period.

In that case, start of antibiotic reduces the symptoms.

Keep adequate hydration by plenty of fluid & electrolyte solutions, light tea, soup.

Anticold tablet like advil cold can help to reduce the pain.


When the symptoms are present for 2 weeks, bacterial infection can be possible.


Sinus scan can be required.


You should get it checked by doctor to start treatment asap.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Regards.
