Good morning everyone,
I was doing really, really well for a while keeping my anxious thoughts at bay. But, here I am again looking for some reassurance. I went to the eye doctor and was told I have clogged eyelashes, which is causing the pain around my eye. But I still have the headache only on the right side of my head. I get stuffy at night (idk if that’s even a thing) and I’ve been using Flonase and a hot compress to soothe this discomfort. My regular doctor said she didn’t see any pressure behind my eyes either, but they didn’t dilate my pupils because she said I didn’t need to. I’m just freaking out. These brain tumor, brain aneurysm fears are causing me wicked anxiety and I can’t focus on anything. Help?

I think the way you sleep has had an impact on these issues. Headaches take many different forms, not just cancer. You may need to speak to your optician about options on the eye lash issues. God bless.

I'm not sure if my eye pain sounds like yours but mine is finally gone I think. I had it for a year and a half and it would affect mainly one eye but sometimes both at the same time. It was only the outside part of my eye not the middle or inside. I did go to see an eye doctor and there was no pressure however I kept having clogged ears and as my ears got better I noticed my eye did too. When I had asked the eye doctor about why I had eye pain before I realized it was connected to my ears he said everything is connected together so if you have any problem going on with sinuses or anxiety or clenching teeth or anything that can cause eye pain. The second I could take an aspirin or ibuprofen it would get rid of the pain but then I was taking him almost every day because the pain was so intense.

Now that I think of it, I get random sharp pains and tinnitus in my right ear too !!! I had an ear infection in February. I’m wondering if that’s what all this is from!

I get the occasional shooting pains in my ear and tinnitus too. When you swallow do you hear crackling? I can't guarantee but sure sounds like exactly what I'm dealing with. I tried everything the ENT said to do and then he said if it's really that annoying to you we can put tubes in your ears but then when the tubes come out you could go right back to having this problem. So I just decided it's simple enough I can live with it It's just annoying. It doesn't cause me anxiety though anymore.
