I usually get headaches somewhat often, but they never go past 4 on a scale from 1-10, and they never stop me from doing everyday tasks. However, for the past week or so, I've had what seems to be a non-stop headache at my temples. Bascially, it feels like someone is gripping my head. Sometimes its not that bad, sometimes it's worse, but it hasn't gotten past a 5 or 6 on the scale of 1-10. I have woken up a couple times this past week because of it, in which I will usually take Excedrin and then take a bath and rub my temples, and then it gets much better.
No other symptoms are present with this headache, except for a tiny bit of sensitivity to flourescent light (which is not too uncommon in my case), and I've been having congestion, sinus pressure, and an occasional runny nose.
Should I consult with a doctor on this? Or does it simply sound like a part of the sinus problems? I'm 31/m in pretty good shape and no crazy health issues.View Thread
