About 5 months ago I woke up with a headache on the left side of my head, almost behind my eye but more to the outer side of my head. It was a shooting pain that went towards the back of my head, being worse when I coughed or bent over. 2 weeks later the pain turned into a dull ache around my left temple/above the ear with more of the pain being above my ear. It feels tender to touch that spot and the area around it now, and I also get sharp pains in the dull spot multiple times a day. The pain is constant and does not get better at any point throughout the day.
I get sinus symtoms too such as pain in left eye, between the eye and nose on the left side, and the eye feels tight/swollen but looks fine.
I also see flashes of light and stringy goop sometimes which clouds my vision. Now the pain I felt at first is back, along with the dull pain.
Ive seen the doctor and had a CT scan which came back normal, and am waiting to see him again for advice on what to do next but I figured I'd come here and get some opinions.
