Pain behind one eye

Every morning around 2 hours after waking up, I feel bad pain behind left eye. This pain starts from the left eye and covers left ear, upper jaw/cheeks. This last for around 1 hour and then gradually decreases. I am not sure whom to consult. Should I go for eye doctor or ENT specialist or any other doctor.

Your symptoms appear to be neuralgic (nerve related). You may need to be evaluated by both an ophthalmologist & an ENT doctor. The response to treatment depends on your nature of work, lifestyle - including food habits, adequate sleep and so on.
