Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I admire your positive outlook and congratulate you for the attitude.


Now I guess you have a sharp pain behind your left year which lasts for only 30 second maximum.


There are lots of pathological causes responsible for such type of symptoms to appear.


However, let me give my opinion here.


As per your clinical history is concerned you can discuss with your neurologist regarding [Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Type 2] for which he will prescribe you following medications as below-

1)Prednisone

2)Acyclovir

3)Antihistamines like Meclizine or Dimenhydrinate

4)Anticholinergics like Scopolamine


For this you need expert's guidance by your local doctors

Hope this helps.
