If you're finding light a problem too it might be migrain, worth checking with your doctor/consultant though as it has continued for few days

Might be worth having a chat with your dentist - I have pain in my temple and across my face from Trigeminal Neuralgia. Julie x

Hi fibro10

i am so sorry to read that you are suffering from such horrific pain, and I genuinely ho that you find the answers that you are looking for?

What you have described could be so many different things unfortunately, and it really needs to be checked out by your GP. It could be migraines as they attack just one side of the head, neck and face at a time, I know this only too well! Sadly, it could also be a nerve problem coming from your teeth? As a nerve can easily become exposed? Again, it could be a sinusitis infection causing the pain?

I want to wish you all the best of luck with this, and please let us all know what they say?

All my hopes and dreams for you

Hi Fibro10,

I get stabbing pain in areas of my head, often to the side. I also get periods of painful sharp, quick sudden pain to back of my eyes.

I am diagnosed with cfs/me, Fibro and pituitary adenoma (4mm) so may be related to any I guess. My Dr scans me regularly but mentioned this may be to do with muscle issues.

Likely that's not alot of help to you, but sometimes sharing info is not a bad thing.

Take care xx

Does it hurt to look at the light? If so it could be inflammation of the eye and you would need to get to an eye doctor to check the pressure. But you would probably have a redness at the corner of your eye. If not that I've had bad headaches that nothing would touch. I had to go to a urgent care clinic to get a shot, before it finally went away. Hope this helps sweetheart!!! xxx Mitzi
