My eyelids are heavy and my eyes are painful all the the time. I have a pressure at the top of my nose and into my forehead and feel very tired and spaced out all of the time. I've been this way for ages.

My eyesight is good having been recently tested. I also feel sick. My Doctor says its sinusitus but itd 6 weeks now. Any help?

    Don't know where you live, but if you are so worried ,go the walk-in emergency

    eye clinic. 

    G,P.s are all well and good, but they know a little bit about a lot of things,and

    will not have specialised knowledge about anything GO TO HE EXPERTS

    Definitely sounds like a sinus infection.They can take weeks to resolve.You might need more meds.

     I agree with Lee.  Sinus problems can take a while to resolve.

    As your eyes have been tested and are okay I wouldn't have thought it was worth going to an emergency eye clinic.  Perhaps ask your doctor or pharmacist for a different sinus med or ask for a referral to see an ENT specialist.

      Thank you all for your replies. Probably is just sinus but feeling this bad for so long is alarming.
