More exams needed: Neuralgia is a condition that the nerve fibers are inflamed or infected with a viral condition that can cause numbness in your face. By your description it is the trigeminal nerve affected, that enervates that area of your face. I suggest you see a neurologyst for further testing and proper diagnosis. ...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

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?

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

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

I have had severe head pain, 2 past strokes right side. Today severe left temple pain then sharp severe right eye pain.  Concerns
?

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.

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

Have left and right temple pain.  Sometimes cannot think clearly.  Seem to have blurry vision. Just had eyes test for laser. Bifocals.  Stress?

Headaches: If your eyes are normal, it is probably stress. Get plenty of rest and drink plenty of fluids, water preferable. Make sure you have work outs scheduled to reduce the stress. Good luck and feel better. ...Read more
