I have a sharp stabbing pain in my left temple and left eye at the same time. This happens every two to three weeks. After the pain deminishes I can feel something on my eye in the corner. My husband says there is a blood red spot there and seems to be worse each time this happens. I saw my eye dr and he said it is a swollen vessel. OK, but why? He can't give me any answers. Why does this keep happening? The pain is extremely sharp and stabbing. After each episode my eye will hurt for a few days and the stabbing pain in my left temple occurs probably every 10 to 15 minutes, some hours then maybe just a few times the next hour? This will go on for a few days. Then as the red spot seems to get lighter and smaller the pain will subside. I can 't seem to get an answer as to why? Is there any serious conditions this could be related with?
