Post can a sty cause a headache?

For the past week I have had a sty in my upper left eye that I cannont get rid of. Every since the sty I have had this terrible headache around my whole left eye, that I also cannot get rid of. It is a sharp headache that circles my whole eye, but doesnt bother my sight or anything like that. I wasnt sure if the headache was due to my sty, but it seems that way since they both came at the same time and are in the same area. I have tried to take tylenol with no avail, any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Since you have had the stye for over a week it is time to see the doctor for some medication. It is possible that the stye is related to your headache but I am not sure one way or the other. The thing is anytime you have a headache that doesn't go away or respond to normal over the counter medications it should be checked out by the doc if it continues. See the doc for antibiotics for the eye and something for the headache.

Okay I went to the doctor today and it turns out I have a chalazeum (sp) and not a sty and more than likely it will not go away unless I have it surgically removed, which the doc said was not necessary, really only for cosmetic reasons. As for the headaches it turns out I am nearsighted and need glasses!! I dont mind glasses, since I'm sure glad this headache will hopefully go away. Thanks for the advice mlgable!!
