I'm not sure if this is what I am dealing eith (bear with me if this gets too long.) I am nearly 29 years old, female and this summer I started experiencing intense pain around my right eye. I noticd too that it would tear and that I am often stuffy. The pain usually occurs late in the afternoon and then again at night- can hardly sleep some nights. Nothing helps, I mean nothing. Over the past few weeks, the pain has intensified into stabbing pains that literally make me gasp and moan. They happen nearly every day. I am also 8 months pregnant and this is taking a toll. I can't spend time with my husband in the evening because I am usually sitting back moaning trying to keep my eye and temple from popping out of my head. I know it is frustrating him terribly and I can't seem to make help him understand the pain and that I just want to be alone because all I feel like doing is weeping. Sorry, I have gone on too long. I don't know if this is what I have, but if it is it frustrates me even more because I cannot take anything stronger than tylenol and as I plan to nurse my baby, I'm still stuck with tylenol for months after the birth. Interestingly, I have noticed that drinking more water does help immensely, so that is hopeful. Anyway, I am glad I found this site and hope you all understand where I'm coming from. Thanks
