I think I have bad eye strain, but I also have temple pain. Are these related?

I think I have bad eye strain, but I also have temple pain. Are these related?

They can be: Eye strain usually occurs when you either stay focused at the same postition for prolonged periods or attempt to focus without glasses when you should be wearing them. Temple pain is not typically associated with this, but can be related to tension headaches. There are other conditions that cause temple pain and poor vision; see an eye doctor if the pain persists, or worsens or vision decreases. ...Read more

Have left facial and temple pain and right vision loss in one eye opthamologist can find no cause she says my eye is healthy can you help ?

Have left facial and temple pain and right vision loss in one eye opthamologist can find no cause she says my eye is healthy can you help ?

Could be serious.: Was the vision loss sudden? If so, you should consider this an ophthalmological emergency. You could have a problem with the circulation to the eye (retinal artery), or optic nerve. Loss of vision should never be considered normal, unless it is simply a refractive problem requiring corrective lenses. I highly suggest you get another opinion from another opthamologist. ...Read more

Strained muscle around eye. Can it cause a aching in temple and cheek and forehead or could sinus issue cause that?

Strained muscle around eye. Can it cause a aching in temple and cheek and forehead or could sinus issue cause that?

Aching: This could be a neuralgia, an irritated/inflamed nerve, rather than a sinus infection as the latter would have to involve more than one paranasal sinus to cause discomfort in all these areas but it's still a possibility. You could consult an otolaryngologist if symptoms persist. ...Read more

Have achy and tension type pain around my eyes and eyebrows along with both temples. Could it be to eye strain? Seems to get little worse with reading

Have achy and tension type pain around my eyes and eyebrows along with both temples. Could it be to eye strain? Seems to get little worse with reading

Eye exam: You may be staining to read and your secondary muscles around your eyes, particularly your corrugator ; orbicularis, are contracting which increases the tension around your eyes. Additionally, you need an eye exam to test your near and distance vision (refraction) ; eye muscle balance. All that might be necessary is a pair of glasses. ...Read more

For the past year, i've been having pain on left side of my head. Recently, i've also been having left temple pain and behind left eye. Any thoughts?

Headache; sinusitis: Head pain with pain behind the eye can be due to a few things. By far the most common is a change in the blood flow to that area in the form of a migraine or headache. Since sinuses surround the eye, it could also be sinusitis. Rarely a mass (benign/not cancer; malignant/cancer) can cause such symptoms. Your md will be able to examine for other signs and may suggest a scan if needed. ...Read more

?

Stroke: in a relatively young person associated with eye pain obviates a work up for arteritis / vasculitis if not already done. Disease activity can be checked with a simple test like a C Reactive Protein or Erythrocyte sedimentation rate. Treatment might require steroids. CT angiography or MR angiography is often part of the work up. Use of hydrazine for BP control requires absolute compliance. ...Read more

I keep having on and off pain behind, in front and above left ear. Left temple pain and left eye pain, occasionally. only lasts a few seconds.

I keep having on and off pain behind, in front and above left ear. Left temple pain and left eye pain, occasionally. only lasts a few seconds.

Couple of ideas: These could be ice pick headaches (are they sharp?), or they could be related to SUNCT syndrome, or they could be related to blood flow (does chewing make the temple feel worse?). So far, there is not enough information to decide, but these are some ideas. ...Read more
