What have you taken to relieve the pain? Could it be a migraine, as it is on one side of your head?
See a dr. It sounds like you've got nerve inflammation in your face. This can be treated.
You may have an abscess tooth. Sees a doc!
Two Possible causes of your symptoms come to mind, first is an abscessed tooth which can kill you if left untreated, and next is a severe sinus infection.
The best way to determine the difference is to bite down on something on the side that hurts and see if it cause the pain to get worse, if it doesn't it is probably not a tooth, but make sure you put pressure on each tooth. Next step is to jump up and down and see if it increases the pain, if it does it is most likely a sinus infection. Some sinus infections can be so severe that they can cause pressure on the roots of your upper teeth.
Judging from your symptoms I am thinking abscessed tooth, and it needs to be dealt with pronto. I have done a brain death study on more than one patient in my life that let an abscessed tooth get out of control, those people are no longer with us.
You probably had access to anti-biotics while traveling abroad and took them and then the pain went away? I ask this because I used to know a nurse that had abscesses all the time and would self medicate because she was afraid of the dentist. It's a temporary fix but if it is a tooth it MUST be addressed.
I had a really bad abscess a few years back and the pain went under my jaw, down my neck, through my ear, and even made my tongue hurt. When the dentist got it out 3 days later I was in bad shape and I slept for nearly two days. It was one of the upper molars towards the back.
I have the same symptoms. I was diagnosed with Trigeminal neuralgia. There is only one medicine that works for it... Tegratol.
Pain tooth and left eye
These are Classis migraine symptoms. I suffer with the same. I use the diabetic medication metformin 500 mg ( half a pill). Be ware, if you are not used to a diabetics drug, you might see sudden decrease in sugar levels. I only use half a pill, which works absolutely wonderful. My migraine comes down in 5 minutes like nothing ever happened. Talk to your doctor or a medical professional. Good luck! Also, good read about metformin and migraine relief in google search and Wikipedia.
Try cleaning your ear with peroxide and qtip, if instant relief you have an ear infection, probably inner ear and can spread to your sinuses. Since your inner ear is next to your brain it can be affected as well if it gets bad enough.
