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

Denture?: Do you wear a denture? assuming you do it may not be fitting well or the teeth may be hard porcelain. You may do better with acrylic (plastic) teeth which are more giving and resilient. Do you grind at bedtime or during the day? If at bedtime, remove your dentures while sleeping. ...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

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

Hard to say : There are other considerations within the ear like the middle ear or the inner ear. Also the ear is very close to the brain we want to make sure that something there is not causing the symptoms.

Mild concussion: Sounds like the symptoms of what is referred to technically as "mild traumatic brain injury" or "mild concussion."
