Possibilities?: I don't know how old you are, but temporal arteritis would be my "worst case scenario" thought right now. This can be suggested by your story. A blood test (see rate) would give us more circumstantial evidence as to this diagnosis. This should be investigated quickly, though, so go see your doctor in follow-up right away. ...Read more

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

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

Diagnosis? Complicat: The condition sounds rather complicated - shifting sites of pain / headache make the diagnosis very difficult. I hope you are seeing a neurologist. You have listed a whole bunch of symptoms, but not a diagnosis, & I presume that "What is the diagnosis?" is your question. Use HealthTap Prime to engage in dialogue with a physician & perhaps they can come to a diagnosis. Uploading pictures would help ...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

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
