For months, but only intermittently, the right side of my nose, and my right eye has been aching. I haven't gone to the doctors because I don't feel like it's an adequate reason to, but it's becoming quite a pain.
Occasionally, usually in the afternoon/ evening my eyeball and bridge of my nose really starts to ache on the right side of my face. It kind of reminds me of when you're on a plane, and the high pressure causes your face to ache, if that makes sense. It's worse on my eyeball, the discomfort stretches up around my eyebrow too.
The only thing that soothes it is massaging my eyeball, and when I close my eye. Right now I'm typing with one eye open, because it's too uncomfortable otherwise.
Does anyone know what this could be? I feel like it might be sinuses, but I haven't had a bad cold recently, and they say that if it's a problem of the sinuses it worsens when you bend your head over, but for me that kind of relieves the discomfort?
I know you'll probably suggest me to go to the doctors, and I think I will, but I feel like this is quite a small reason to waste doctors time. And also because the discomfort is only intermittent and towards the evening, I can guarantee that I'll feel perfectly fine when I go to the appointment.
