pain behind the eye

I know there are a few headache posts out there but I didn't see this mentioned specifically.

I have a member who just recently (this is the second wod in a row) started getting a severe headache behind his right eye. First time it was during some relatively light back squats and then this morning during the warm up with pull ups.

It sounds like sinus issues (could be frontal, ethmoidal, or maxillary maybe) to me. Just wondering if anybody else out there has had this issue or if there are some docs who might shed some light.

Thanks.

Need more info. What kind of pain? How long do they last? Visual disturbances? Lightheadness, etc. Do they drink alcohol often?

Re: pain behind the eye

Always refer to a Dr....as there can be many reasons for it. Anything from a flare up of sinusitis to something more serious.
