Q: What can pain be around right eye orbit, almost daily for seven years. It is always this eye.

what can pain around right eye orbit be?  This occurs at least five times a week, and has been going on for at least seven years.  My eye doctor sees nothing.  I thought it may have something to do with poor vision in this one eye as compared to the left.  Sometimes it tears, even without pain.

Hi Deidre!  


Orbital pain can be from many things, including, but not limited to MigraineCluster Headaches or Hemicrania Continua. No one can diagnose you over the internet. You need to see a doctor who can diagnose you by reviewing your medical history, family medical history, and symptoms and doing a complete exam.  Please do not ignore this pain! See: Ignoring Migraines and Headaches Can Spell Danger!  


If you find that your doctor can't help, try a neurologist or a headache and Migraine specialist. We have a list of Migraine and headache specialists on our site. Take a look at the article Migraine and Headache Specialists - What's So Special? If you need help finding a Migraine specialist, check our listing of Patient Recommended Migraine and Headache Specialists.  


Please make an appointment to see a doctor as soon as possible. The sooner you see a doctor, the sooner you will know what is going on.  


Good Luck!
