Thank you for your questions.

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information provided by you. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) for a private consultation with our doctors.

We understand how bad this headache can impact your life and we will try our best to comfort you.
One habit to break is you should limit the use of mobile phone before sleep because it can disrupt your circadian rhythm and makes it difficult for you to sleep.

From your limited information, we could not determine for sure why your right eyes will become watery when you turn to your right side. Further information is needed to pinpoint the cause.

For your information, headache can be caused by:

  • Tension-type headache
  • Migraine
  • Cluster headache
  • Sinus headache

Headache can also be caused by other brain structures such as malignancy or benign growth in the brain. However, cases as such occur in small number. Possibility of being diagnosed with cancer is high if the patient has additional symptoms listed below:

  • Sudden onset of the worst headache in your life
  • Blackout
  • Unintentional weight loss

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor. You may also click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online. We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties. Thank you.
