left sided headache!

I am having these left sided headache where my eye, ear and head pains at the same time. Just the left side. It's not actually the whole area of my left head, it's just a particular vein that just keep paining while pulsating. I consulted an eye doctor, to which she said that I have a minimum vision problem like 0.5. It's not that big though, but I got glasses anyway which I use sometimes while reading etc. She suggested an ENT specialist if my headache comes back. And I did, but he said that my ear is in good condition. He gave me some medication for 3 months for my headache and told me that I would have to take x-ray if the headache comes back even after the medication. This was like 5 years ago and I still get those headaches. Even now am suffering from it. I did not go back for the x-ray and I just take the medication he prescribed whenever the pain gets back. And I would be relieved for like 2-3months. But it will come back. So I don't know if it is normal or should I be concerned. Please help!

Hi and welcome to the Migraines & Headaches Community.

I don't think it is anything to be concerned about. As long as the medicine he gave you works then I would just continued doing what you're doing. If not, then I would talk to your PCP about it and see if he thinks it is a migraine and go from there.
