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.

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

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 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

?

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 have post nasal drip and temple pain on both side of my head. i had sinusitis too but the pain on my face is gone. no congestion. what is this?

Rhinitis vs Headache: Post nasal drip, sinusitis, and facial pain/pressure can be due to poorly controlled allergic/non-allergic rhinitis. Daily nasal sprays important to maintain control, can use chlorpheniramine at night for worsening drip. See Allergist to determine sensitivities for avoidance measures. Temple pain could be related to tension-type or migraine headaches depending on presentation, not typical sinus HA ...Read more
