Pain above left eye
I am getting frequent pain above my left eye, which causes pain in left part of head. Sleeping is the only solution.it starts for any reason, usually when i sleep more, or stay out for long in hot day. I used to have morr headaches till the age of 14, but it stopped, again it has started. Usually mild pain starts when i wake up and then becomes unbearable by night.
