do you have allergies?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I used to really bad but they went away about 20 years for most part. I get these headaches..always on right side..always under brow..i feel like if i could reach up under brow i coule massage it..of course i dont. I get them about once every 3 months or so sometimes longer. They do get worse when i cough and strain or bend over. Thats what always worried me. They are usually gone by morning. This one came along this afternoon whe golfing in hot humid weather

It is also on my weak eye side
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 month ago.

I suspect it is sinus related

there is a large sinus in this area

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Ok. So no chance anything serious? I was worried since was one sided and hurt more with movement.
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I dont have any other sinus symptoms though
