Brief Answer:
Lifestyle management needed.

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.

There could be many reasons for this type of pain, raised IOP(intra ocular pressure) being one of them.

More commonly you have to check if you are taking care of yourself. If you don't eat well or are not getting proper rest then such pains are more likely to occur.

I am presuming that you don't have recurrent sore throat, as such sharp pains may be in sinusitis as well.

Since it is a long standing problem, we in our practice suggest these supportive measures before taking pain killers.

Any further issues regarding this problem, please do get back to me.
