Brief Answer: As below: Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for your query. 1. The first thing to do is to get the ear, eye, nose along with the sinuses, the jaw joint, teeth examined and investigated to rule out any local cause for the pain. This will require a visit to an ENT Specialist, Eye Specialist and a Dentist. Referred pain must be ruled out. 2. The next part is to rule out a migraine, cluster headache and a trigeminal neuralgia. This will require a detailed examination by a neurologist. 3. Migraines are best treated with medications such as ergotamine, flunarizine and triptans. Neuralgias are best treated with medications such as amitriptyline, carbamazepine, gabapentin and pregabalin. These medications are different from ordinary painkillers. Due to their potential side effects, it is recommended that you take these only under strict medical supervision. 4. The exact type of pain, its characteristics, aggravating and relieving factors, presence of eye or ear symptoms such as watering, redness. photophobia, tinnitus and so on are important to help make a diagnosis. I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them. Regards.
