is the pain only on the left side of your head? and does it move down to the jawline and eye area? is the pain constantly there? and does it get worse with doing things such as eating, talking bending over?
so for all the questions but what you describe is similar to what i experienced recently along with the things i said above, my doctor said I have neuralgia which is nerve pains in the head. its cant be treated with normal painkillers.
or it could simply be a migrane? i would defo go see your doctor if it continues anyway for a definate answer :)
It could be migrain,tension headaches or even an ear infection,all of which can cause this pain on the side of your head another possibility is a pinched nerve.
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Headaches and pain in temple area (just above the ear) can be due migraine. Tension headaches due to stress too affect the temple area.
Temporal arteritis, internal ear infection, TMJ and tooth decay can all cause a temple pain.
Infection in the eye, glaucoma, near and far sightedness and sinusitis are the other causes.
Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!
