Pain in the head, eyes and jaw. Leg pain. No relief after taking pain killers

I have very bad pain in my right side head starting from my eye and going till my jaw and face.. But only right side of the face and only when I sit or lay down.. If I stand up I feel relief and the pain goes away.. It is happening continuously since 3 days now.. I am unable to sleep and my legs hurts because I am standing all the time so I don't feel the pain.. Please help me.. I went to doc she gave me some pain killer and nerve relaxer but nothing is working..

Thanks for writing.

After reading your symptoms, I feel that you may be having an attack of trigemminal neuralgia.
The features in trigemminal neuralgia are similar to what you say, pain on one side of the face, may involve eye and jaw also.
The reason the pain is more while sitting or lying down is because there may be a blood vessel close to the course of the trigemminal nerve and touching it when you sit or lie down. This results in pain and when you are standing, the nerve is free.

Please consult a neurologist and he will examine you and give you medication.

Hope this helps.
