I have a headache and eye pain in left side but when I have been taking Aspirin but it only calms my aches and after i took Aspirin after 3 or for hours my ache returns back.
Do you have pain going up your neck to the side of your head to your eye? I have a pain like that, its caused by the neck muscle being tight. Stretching that side helps, also ice to it. Massage and hot showers help too. If your pain isn't like that, then see a dr. There are other things that can cause it. When you take aspirin allot you can get rebound pain when it wears off. I always try the other things first.
It may be due to sinus pain. Try taking a decongestant/antihistamine and see if that helps. Allergens are really bad in some parts right now. Aspirin does only last about 3 hours so that is no surprise.
You could be having migraine pain. Migraine pain is usually one sided and can cause pain in the same side in the eye . I recommend going to a neurologist. Or if you feel more comfortable, go to your internist and get a referral from him or her.
I agree, I get this and it is a migraine for me! I use one Tylenol and one Advil. That helps if I take it right away when I start feeling the pain!
Call your doctor you may need a neurologist to help with your diagnostic!
Dzoobaby hit it right on the head I guarantee you have a sinus infection the thing I found works best believe it or not is dollar store sinus medicine just be careful after about three days if it hasn't gotten better go to the doctor and get an antibiotic or they will only get worse until you end up in the er in the middle of the night I get them twice a year and if I'm ever around a lot of dust another thing that goes along with them is your top row of teeth will start to hurt becAuse your sinuses are so close to your teeth don't let the doc waste your time with MRI to tell you it's sinusitis which is a big word for a sinus infection
Is your headache made worse by light or strong odors? Do you have nausea ?
It sounds like a migraine but with any vascular headache, a doctor should be consulted. Not only for diagnosis, but there are treatments now.
My family member had the similar type of problem and did a Cervical spine MRI. The findings was something wrong with the cervical spine and had been prescribed with Meloxicam 15mg. After taking it for a month, the problem had gone entirely.
Do you have dry eye symptoms? Aspirin is probably not the best relief for eye pain. Aspirin is more commonly used as a blood thinner. Headache and eye pain for your condition might not be inter-related. Does eye pain and headache act up simultaneously? Does it happen daily? Please do provide more details about your eye pain and headache if you are ok with it.

Try one thing. Clean your ear with 3% peroxide and qtip. If almost instant relief you have an inner ear infection and you need antibiotics asap + make an appointment with ENT specialist. The infection can spread to your sinuses and even your brain if it gets bad enough.
