Post left side of head, pressure dizziness.

Hello, I have dealt with this for at least 5 years now, been to various doctors and nothing has helped. I have a constant headache & pressure only on the left side of my head. It is mainly behind my left eye. The pressure is located under my left eye on my cheek bone. The headache is not intense, it almost feels as if I have a hangover every day on my left side. I have had MRI's & Catscans, of my brain and sinuses,I even had allergy testing done but everything comes back negative. The headache is coupled with dizziness, again only on my left side. It is so easy to tell because my right side is normal. I also get some burning in my left eye which sometimes makes me squint even in the dark. One doctor said it could be migraine, but it is there constantly sometimes more intense than others. This is something I deal with every day and I am terrified that I may have this the rest of my life. Can anyone help ? Thanks !

Hello, I read your post and think that first of all you should go to an opthamologist. Sounds like you might have some swelling of the optic nerve, that can be pretty dangerous if not treated. If the eye test comes back normal, then I would go to a neurologist. I wish you much luck. Take care. SusieQ
