Sounds like: a frontal sinus/middle ear infection (Upper Respiratory Infection or URI) Most of the time the "culprit" is a virus (most commonly the common cold RHINOVIRUS) The headache and earache MAY indicate a bacterial "superinfection) thus a anti-biotic indicated.

Start Tracking them: If they happen with any frequency (>once weekly) then, you may have a form of dysautonomic facial pain vs. cephalgic syndrome though you've not mentioned anything having to do with headaches per se. In that case, there is medication that could prevent these STABBING episodes. Again, start your diary. More questions? Write me at: www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi

Whats wrong with my eye.. What should I do? I've been having a sharp pain whenever i blink with my right eye since yesterday

The : The ocular surface (including the cornea) has many nerve endings. If the surface cells are disrupted (as in an abrasion of the cornea, the presence of a foreign body, or an infection) pain can result. The reason you are feeling this with blinking is because your lid is likely moving across this injured part of the eye surace. The pain will not go away until this injury goes away. (an analogous situation would be if you scraped your knee on concrete. It would certainly hurt if you rubbed it.) you should present to your local eye doctor if possible as they will be able to provide a proper diagnoses and treatment. Thanks you.

Sharp pain in right eye every time i blink whole right side of right eye is irritated and covered in vessels, dryness, slight tearing what can it be?

See UR eye dr. & PCP: Your eye doctor can see a lot under the slit lamp microscopy to determine what's going on with your tear film, dry eyes, possible foreign material (mascara), blink reflex, contact lens wear, and other things. Sharp usually means dry or exposure. If need be, s/he may suggest you have your thyroid checked by your PCP, just to make sure it's not from that as well. You are young.So it's easy to treat!
