Frontal Sinus: The frontal sinus lives just above the nose and can extend out over the eye. Pressure changes in the frontal sinus and infection can cause discomfort in this region of the forehead. Persistant discomfort or swelling and tenderness of the skin in this area or any visual changes (double vision) would require urgent/emergent evaluation. Sinus infections often require abx. Hope this helps!

Pain and tingling ey: MeK173 ~have you have your BP checked lately. If not this is a good excuse to go in for a check. This may be nothing, but if the pain persists I would see a Dr because this could be raised, blood pressure, simple migraine, eye infection, or early herpes zoster CrVdiv1, which can involve eye. If the HA is gone, watchful waiting but have the BP checked. Thanks

See eye doctor: It may also be iritis, which is inflammation in the eye which causes an ache and light sensitivity. See an eye doctor to rule out the eye as a source of the pain or as a trigger.

Sharp pain on left side (on top) of head-radiates around left eye and left ear?

Sharp pain on left side (on top) of head-radiates around left eye and left ear?

Have it checked out!: While scalp sensitivity radiating toward an eye or ear may seem benign, some possibilities are more risky and deserve a check up. Particularly, if there is a possibility of early shingles (a zoster virus flare) or a process called giant cell arteritis (or temporal arteritis) then time is of the essence. This is especially true with any changes in vision. Follow up with your primary or eye md.
