I am 34 yrs old, I suddenly started getting a sharp pain in the left side of my head behind my left eye and just above the left ear. It is very unusual and striking kind of pain that I never experienced before now. It is very painful and I also experience the blurr vision of my left eye when I get this pain. Its exactly from 3 days ago and is occasional. It is very difficult for me to make it to the correct doctor here as ours is the Govt. hospital and we have no private clinics available.. Please help me what is my problem?

Thanks for using this forum....

Pain in left side of head and blurring of vision...The reasons can be many but i would advice you to wait for a week and if it doesnot improve with simple analgesics,then you need to consult a neurologist as it may be vascular related/migrainous...Your bp is also high especially the diastolic and can sometimes cause these headaches ,its good to have it around 90 and you may take some medicine for it also...

take care....
