Customer Question
I've been having horrific...

I've been having horrific pain in my forehead above my right eye and behind my eye. It comes and goes, have had it for two days now. Very strong pain like getting hit in the head with a hammer. Please help.

Doctor's Assistant: Did you have a recent injury to the eye? How is your vision?

No, vision ok.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Had stroke in 2008, but am almost fully recovered.

pain when I press on it. Vision ok. No rash.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 5 months ago

There is a concern that it is tender to the touch when you press on it. When that happens we worry about something called giant cell arteritis and we would want that addressed very quickly if that's the case because the right medications can help prevent and complications.

Are you able to get in to see your doctor today?
