Headaches
Dear CyberDoc,
I have been experiencing severe headaches for the past two days. It has mostly been on the left hand side of my head. It sometimes feels like I can't put too much pressure on my head. My left eye has also been affected. I also wear glasses consantly.
What could be the problem.
Please help.

Stressed, it’s difficult to say what the cause is without being able to examine you, but it sounds like you might have a cluster headache. I wrote something on the most common types of headaches a while ago and if you mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za, I’ll send you a copy. You can use it to determine the type of headache you have and then you can let me know if you have more questions. Good luck.
PS. Please post your question as a new question and not below my reply because I won’t get your question if you do.
