Why do I get headaches above my left eye & they never go away?

Need more info: First, forget right or left because no disease process is always on left side of the head in all patients. If a pain is always (not 99%) but always on the same side be very concerned about a structural problems which can include many local diseases such as sinusitis, bone infection, brain tumors, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformation & even migraine (but note 100% unilaterality in migraine is rare.

Chronic headaches: Chronic headaches are often caused by TMJ dysfunction: bruxism (chronic teeth grinding and/or clenching) and/or a bad bite. Make an appointment with your dentist for an exam and evaluation. Also Check with your medical doctor.

Why does my left eye get a red line through it followed by a migraine headache?

Why does my left eye get a red line through it followed by a migraine headache?

Migraines: Some migraines are associated with visual auras. This is very common. If the red one is in your visual field then you are having a migraine that involves the visual part of the brain. If the red line is in your eye and the headaches on the same side you may be having cluster headaches. Both are a form of vascular headaches.

Why do I get headaches in the back lower side of my head? Along with left eye vision problems?

Why do I get headaches in the back lower side of my head? Along with left eye vision problems?

Possibly migraine: Headache with visual disturbance is likely migrainous related at your age. A comprehensive eye exam will help to reassure that the eyes are healthy and not the cause of the symptoms. As far as your headaches, if the frequency and severity do not allow for a reasonably functional life, I recommend that you see your primary care doctor to assess & treat.

Migraines: Certainly sound like they could be migraines. Often migraines become worse with long time use of over-the-counter medications to treat pain. There are effective treatment and lifestyle approaches to migraines. Please see your physician or make a virtual appointment for further guidance.

Sinus: The flu runs you down and allows for secondary infections to develop. It sounds like you developed an infection of the l frontal sinus and will need antibiotics. Tell your parents and have a doc take a look a simple ct would prove the infection but don't sit back check that sinus asap. You amy need a week or 2 of a good antibiotic.

I have eye pain in my right eye when I look to the left, I have a strabismus in my left eye for 30+ years and never get eye pain or headaches.

I have eye pain in my right eye when I look to the left, I have a strabismus in my left eye for 30+ years and never get eye pain or headaches.

Unlikely connection: Usually strabismus does not cause eye pain, with a few exceptions. If there is a hypotropia when moving the eye nasally, you may have a brown syndrome, where the tendon of the superior oblique "hangs up" at the trochlea. Trying to move the eye anyway may cause discomfort. With optic neuritis eye movement often causes pain, but in any direction.

Suffering from SVT and I think there's a lump on right testical but can't find it when see doc, get pains in back+feel sick twitching+headache left eye.

Relax first: If you could. If you feel that there is a lump, talk to a urologist and have him do a physical exam on you to ensure that it is not test ocular cancer... Then sort out the causes if your back pain, fast heart rate, etc. But please relax first, it might slow you heart down! Best luck to you and happy easter weekend!

I have headaches associated with pain from my left eye but when I close my left eye the headache and pain gradually goes away. What's causing it?

Asthenopia?: You may have some eye strain cause by difference in the shape of your two eyes. If one is slightly shorter than the other you will have a difference in prescription which if untreated could cause strain in one eye.
