Do u get a stabbing headache with pink eye? I have had it for several days now it lasts for only 10 seconds or so but it is awful about once an hour

Do u get a stabbing headache with pink eye? I have had it for several days now it lasts for only 10 seconds or so but it is awful about once an hour

Not likely.: Pink eye is more likely to cause itching, irritation and discharge, but not a stabbing headache, and this should be evaluated. Pink eye is often associated with sinusitis or ear infection, which could cause headache, but there are other reasons that an eye can turn red and look like pink eye including migraine, so understanding the cause is important.
