If i try to sleep on my right side with my head on a pillow, my left eye feels like there is a lot of pressure and hurts (dull pressure pain) teeth too?

Sinuses ?: I can not say it is not your eye - without an exam- but head position rarely changes things you can feel in a normal - no trauma or surgery - eye. The eye is very sensitive and surrounded by sinuses. I think this sounds like sinus pressure/ congestion that is positional.

Get Examined: You may have a number of possible problems. Abscessed tooth, so see your dentist. Sinus infection, see ENT physician. If those are not finding the problem, see neurologist. There are two academies of dentists with special focus on oral pain. Check for members at these websites: aaop.Org and aacfp.Org on internet.
